Liquid Oxygen Systems

To understand how liquid oxygen provides gaseous oxygen, a simple analogy will help.

We all know that water is a liquid at room temperature. When we increase the temperature of water, (by boiling it) it then turns into a gas which is evident by the steam.

Oxygen is a gas at room temperature. By making oxygen cold enough (-183°C) it changes to a liquid.

Our liquid oxygen tanks store the liquid at this temperature until oxygen gas is required. When turned on, the liquid oxygen flows up through internal coils and continues to warm up until it changes to a gas.

The advantage to this type of system is that just 1 liter of liquid oxygen provides 860 liters of oxygen gas.

Therefore with just one tank, the supply of oxygen can last from days to weeks depending on usage. Liquid oxygen systems come with their own portable tank which can be filled easily by the patient and carried conveniently with the provided shoulder strap.
