AirSep Companion 5 Stationary Concentrator Overview

The AirSep Companion 5 stationary concentrator is the latest in low maintenance, simple and user friendly stationary oxygen concentrators. As medical technology improves, oxygen concentrators are progressively getting more robust, more powerful, feature-packed and even quieter than they were just a few years ago. If you need daily a daily oxygen dose up to 5 LPM (liters per minute), then you should definitely check out the Companion 5 stationary oxygen concentrator.

Small and Compact

The first thing oxygen therapy patients will notice about the Companion 5 is its small stature and compact and sleek appearance. It fits in the smallest of places, as long as it has sufficient room to bring in the ambient air through its intake vent. A little room is all it needs, to fit in your bedroom so you can use it while you sleep, or next to your easy chair, so you can receive your oxygen therapy while you watch your favorite shows.

Exceptionally Quiet

Another wonderful thing oxygen therapy patients will love about this brand new product, is how exceptionally quiet it is. It features exclusive ultraSILENT technology. This means it is virtually silent as it draws in the air, and it has the quietest purge cycle to be found among stationary oxygen concentrators.

Many stationary concentrators produce a hum that can be bothersome at first and take some getting used to. It can be another annoyance when one first starts using home oxygen therapy. The sound level has been measured at 40 decibels on the setting of 2 LPM. If you're not sure what 40 decibels sounds like, just imagine a very quiet conversation in a library. There won't take any “getting used to” with this quiet machine.

Energy Efficient

You won't notice much of a jump in your energy bill when you start using the Companion 5 at home. It uses a maximum of 350 watts on the highest oxygen setting of 5 LPM, and 250 watts at 2.0 LPM. As most newer stationary oxygen concentrators, they will save you money and are safer for the environment.

Wider Range of Oxygen Settings

The oxygen dosage settings on the Companion 5 run between 0.5 to 5 LPM, in 0.5 increments. This makes it a great choice for those who need a more specific dosage, such as 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 or 4.5 LPM of continuous flow oxygen.

Low Maintenance and User Friendly

You only need to have the Companion 5 serviced every 2 years. The only thing you will need to do in the meantime, is clean the intake filter, which is the filter that catches the dust and larger particles out of the ambient air that the concentrator brings in. The control panel is easy to read and easy to operate. It won't take an expert to set the flow or read the alarms.
