Preventative Maintenance for your Oxygen Concentrator

Jan 5, 2011 by

It is now 2011 and the team at American Medical wants to pass on a friendly reminder that your oxygen concentrators need some cleaning. Replacing the internal hepa filter annually and washing the side filters will improve the operation and increase the life of your unit. The preventative maintenance procedures recommended by each supplier are as follows:

Respironics EverGo: Rinse and completely dry the side gross particle filter weekly/bi-weekly depending on the use of the machine

Respironics EverFlo: Change internal hepa filter annually/bi-annually depending on the environment and use of he machine

SeQual Eclipse: A Preventative Maintenance (PM) service is recommended by the manufacturer.   This includes replacing the 9-volt internal alarm battery, and bacteria, internal hepa and gross particle filters.   This procedure can only be completed by an authorized service center because it involves opening up the unit. 

Invacare XPO2: Remove unit from carry bag and lift up front face plate to access the gross particle filter. Rinse and completely dry weekly/bi-weekly depending on the use of the machine. Replace the Inlet/Herpa filter annually/bi-annually dependent upon use.

Invacare Perfecto 2: Rinse and completely dry the gross particle filter on the rear of the machine weekly/bi-weekly depending on the use of the machine. Replace internal hepa filter annually/bi-annually depending on the environment and the use of the machine.

Inogen One G1: Rinse and completely dry the gross particle filter located in the rear of the machine weekly/bi-weekly depending on the environment and the use of the machine.
