OxyGen Generators

Summit Hill Laboratories offers two VETROSON® OXY-GEN™ SYSTEMS supplying oxygen for the veterinary hospital at a low cost per LPM.

Model Delivers Tailor Made for:
VGS2015 120V 20 PSI, 15 LPM Anesthesia machines and ICU units
VGS5015 230V 50 PSI, 15 LPM ……….Above plus a ventilator

Knowing LPM is the way to size up which VETROSON OXY-GEN SYSTEM is right for you. How can you do this? It’s simple:

An anesthesia machine uses about 1 LPM, fill a Snyder ICU or a Cage Door ICU at 10 LPM, maintain at 5 LPM. Both can run on a 20 PSI unit. A ventilator averages 4 LPM depending on tidal volume. It requires 50 PSI. Add the total LPM required by the oxygen-consuming equipment at peak loads, then select the proper model.



What is it?
Each OXY-GEN™ SYSTEM is a combination of a generator and receiver tank with interfaces that connect the generator to the receiver tank and the receiver tank to the central oxygen system manifold. The system can produce a minimum of 14,000 liters of oxygen in a 24 hour period delivering either 20 or 50 PSI at a flow rate of 15 LPM.

What isn’t it?
It is not a concentrator. Concentrators are generally used in a 1 to 1 situation delivering up to 5 PSI, which is not sufficient pressure to connect to a manifold and handle multiple machine requirements. It is not used to fill oxygen “H” tanks.

Why have continuous flow?
It is necessary to have all the VETROSON® components to insure adequate flow and pressure to handle a veterinary hospital’s total oxygen requirements: anesthesia machines, ventilators, a Snyder ICU or Oxygen Cage Door units. With continuous flow one is assured accuracy in LPM delivery

Why a Receiver Tank?
The receiver tank holds 30 liters of oxygen. The receiver tank is designed to handle multiple flushes for an oxygen purge during anesthesia and filling of ICU’s without throwing the system off balance. This tank is not for storage. It is continually releasing a small amount of oxygen.

Calculating Requirements
Use 1 LPM for each anesthesia machine in use, 10 LPM to fill a Snyder ICU or an Oxygen Cage Door, 5 LPM to maintain it, and 4 LPM for each ventilator. If the practice has a ventilator, a 50 PSI unit must be purchased. These figures vary slightly per individual animal’s anesthesia requirements. Match your LPM requirements with LPM supplied. Leave a little room for an additional anesthesia machine or an ICU unit. The cost per LPM will be the lowest for any oxygen generator available today.

What are the electrical requirements, size and weight of the units?

Easy to install. Attach the short hose on the receiver tank to the generator and the long hose to the oxygen system manifold. Plug the electrical cord into a nearby dedicated receptacle.

Back Up
Utilize your present system as back up in the event of electrical failure. In this instance just turn the OXY-GEN SYSTEM off and the O2 tank on.
