Read more about our stationary concentrators.
In this article we would like to introduce you to our different stationary oxygen concentrators. Since experience has shown that selecting the right stationary oxygen concentrator is not easy at all for the user, we are happy to give you a hand by summarizing the characteristics of our stationary concentrators.
The biggest advantage of the Kröber 4.0 is the low number of decibles produces by the concentrator when it is in use. With only 31 dB, the Kröber 4.0 is by far the quietest stationary oxygen concentrator available today.
Most stationary oxygen concentrators provide a minimum of 1 liter of oxygen per minute. As a result, a stationary concentrator is usually not suitable for use by children, because they often require a lower number of liters of oxygen per minute. With the Kröber 4.0 this problem has been solved; this concentrator is ideal for both children and adults with a medical indication for supplemental oxygen and oxygen demand of 0.1 to 5 liters of oxygen per minute (LPM).
Furthermore, the Kröber 4.0 is the only one of the stationary oxygen concentrators with an LC-display. On this display the flow settings can be easily changed and also the operating hours ca be read from this digital display.
Inogen At Home
The smallest and lightest oxygen concentrator for use at home is the Inogen At Home. No stationary oxygen concentrator today can match the weight of 8 kilograms and the dimensions of 33 x 17.8 x 41.9 cm of the Inogen At Home. The small size and weight of the concentrator makes it easy for the user to move the concentrator indoors every now and then. Or if, for example, you go elsewhere where you would like to take the concentrator with you, this is not a problem either.
In addition to size and weight, a major advantage of the Inogen At Home is that the concentrator is the most energy efficient of all stationary oxygen concentrators. The Inogen At Home uses only 100 watts at the setting of 2 LPM and up to 275 watts at the setting of 5 LPM. This can make a huge difference on your annual energy bill.
Besides all this, the Inogen At Home has molecular sieves which can easily be replaced by the user. These sieves filter the nitrogen out of the air, leaving pure oxygen. After time, their effectiveness can decrease. The concentrator itself measures the lifetime of the sieves and informs you when the molecular sieves need to be replaced, so that you can keep using the concentrator safely.
Philips Respironics EverFlo
Besides the Kröber 4.0, the EverFlo also has a lower minimum oxygen delivery than 1 LPM. The Philips Respironics EverFlo gives from 0.5 to 5 liters of oxygen per minute and therefore this concentrator is also ideal for both children and adults.
In addition, the EverFlo is very reliable. Thanks to the solid and smart design of the EverFlo, the risk of breaking down a certain component is almost zero. You can therefore assume that this robust oxygen concentrator from Philips Respironics will provide you with oxygen for a long time without any problems.
Besides the reliability of the EverFlo, the concentrator is also completely maintenance-free. Where in other stationary concentrators sometimes a filter needs to be replaced, this is not the case with the Philips Respironics EverFlo. Do make sure that the outside of the EverFlo device is regularly taken off with a damp cloth; there are small holes in the filter valve through which outside air enters the appliance.
