SOMERSET, PA – December 2, 2013 – Built upon a legacy of reliable, field-proven concentrator models and re-introduced today, the DeVilbiss 5 Liter Oxygen Concentrator was updated with enhanced quality, durability, performance and simplicity in mind. Now made in the USA*, concentrator production has moved to DeVilbiss headquarters in Somerset, Pa.
“We are proud to offer an improved concentrator that is built to last and easy to maintain,” said Jim Clement, Director of Global Product Management - Respiratory Solutions for DeVilbiss Healthcare. “The redesign of the 5 Liter Oxygen Concentrator offers patients a robust but noticeably quiet unit.”
The concentrator’s simplified, two-piece cabinet design allows for 15 percent typical sound quality improvement and an improved cooling process. The cabinet design also makes the unit easy to assemble and disassemble.
The energy-efficient design of the concentrator reduces power consumption by 15 percent or more compared with competitive designs to save patients an average of $100 in electricity costs annually. The Turn-Down Technology automatically turns down the unit’s flow cycle below 2-1/2 lpm, resulting in a 35 percent reduction in system pressure to reduce stress on compressor bearings and internal fittings.
Exclusive DeVilbiss OSD® (Oxygen Sensing Device) is standard on every unit and increases accuracy and reliability for longer service intervals. The unit also features readily accessible patient controls, protected cannula fitting and recessed humidifier nook to prevent damage.
