MEDICAL AIR PLANT

 

Medical Air System Catalogue

 

The critical needs of the hospital demand the highest quality medical air and thus Medical Air Plants are an integral part of a patient life support system.

Medical Air Plants complies with all the rigorous standards of HTM02-01.

Medical Air Plants are used to supply medical quality air for Respiration and Surgical needs.
The Medical Air 4 bar Plant is especially used in applications related with respiration and in ventilation fans which operates with air.
Surgical Air 7 Bar is used for the operation of the surgical equipments which are used in operation theaters.

Main Parts of Medical Air Systems;

The medical air systems plant consists of two or more identical air compressors, compressed air receiver vessel(s) and an air filtration / dryer assembly including line pressure regulators. Air plant is provided with a fully automatic control system, with manual override facility to minimise energy consumption and compressor wea

 
 

Air Compressor: Atlas Copco Air compressors are used in Medical Air Plants to supply compressed air.

Dryer Modul: The dryer module consists of duplex, twin absorber towers, containing activated alumina desiccant, of the fully regenerative type. When the plant is in operation one column is on stream removing water vapour from the delivered air whilst the other column is being dried and regenerated by passing a small air purge through it. No electrical heating is required to achieve the specified standards of dryness. Whilst this dryer is in operation, the standby dryer is ready to take over the duty on automatic selection should the duty dryer fail.

 
Filters: Medical Air Plants are equipped with a duplex set of carefully selected filters, to ensure maximum air quality, and extended service life of the desiccant. Filters assebly is required to finally filter out the residual water, oil mist or droplets and other particulate matter.

Air Receiver: The Air Receiver acts as a reservoir for the compressed air. It maintains a constant pressure and ensures that an uninterrupted non-pulsatile air flow is delivered. Each receiver should also be fitted with safety valves, a pressure gauge and an inspection window to check that the drain is working.
