DeVilbiss Compact 525. £795.00
After extensive testing and field trials, we have chosen the DeVilbiss Compact 525 as the ideal Oxygen Concentrator for Veterinary use. With a noise level of only 38dB it is significantly quieter than any of our competitor’s offerings (see below). It has a built-in Oxygen sensing device for patient safety. It has an output of 93% Oxygen at a rate of up to 5 Litres per minute.
Visual and audible alarms for: low oxygen level; power failure; pressure drop; and service required.
3 years warranty as standard (an optional extended 2 year warranty package available) It requires minimal maintenance (our annual service charge is £30).
Easy to operate. Low power consumption (running costs are approximately 3 Pence per hour).
Robust construction. Moulded hand-grip and free-moving roller base for ease of movement. Weight 16.3 Kg. Dimensions: Height 62.2 Cm; Width 34.2 Cm; Depth 30.4 Cm.
N.B., we strongly advise against the use of any Oxygen Concentrator to supply more than one Anaesthetic Unit at a time, as a change in flow rate in any one machine invariably causes significant changes to the output of any other units connected to the Concentrator. The golden rule is ‘One concentrator per Anaesthetic work-station’.
Decibels (dB) The ear has the remarkable ability to handle an enormous range of sound levels. In order to express levels of sound meaningfully in numbers that are more manageable, a logarithmic scale is used, rather than a linear one. This scale is the Decibel Scale.
What is a decibel? Zero decibels (0 dB) is the quietest sound audible to a healthy human ear. From there, every increase of 3 dB represents a doubling of sound intensity, or acoustic power.
Our main competitor offers the Oxi-Gen 10, which is rated at 50dB. From the above you can deduce that it is at least 3 times noisier than the 38 dB of the DeVilbiss 525.
All of the anaesthetic machines we manufacture may be used with an Oxygen Concentrator.
You may visit our Liverpool show-room (by appointment), and see this equipment, and try it out yourself ‘hands-on’, to help dispel any doubts you may have.
