This Compressor is made to work with compatible Respironics EverFlo 5LPM or Respironics Milennium 10LPM Oxygen Concentrators that are specifically outfit with the UItrafill connection port. This compressor also requires specific Ultrafill compatible Oxygen Cylinders.
UltraFill’s long-lasting 3,000 PSI cylinders (MB08, MC13, MD22, and ME36) provide patients with greater than 40% more oxygen than similar sized 2,000 PSI tanks. That means a patient using the 3,000 PSI MB08 tank on a setting of two at 20 BPM will have approximately three more hours of oxygen than the patient using a 2,000 PSI M6 tank on the same settings.
Less-delivery technology reduces provider costs
The system generates oxygen and fills cylinders right in the home, eliminating recurrent oxygen deliveries for service providers .Since 3,000 PSI cylinders last longer than traditional 2,000 PSI cylinders, patients will require fewer cylinders as well.
One-handed operation for easy handling
The cylinder can be easily connected and disconnected with one hand. This makes it easy for people of all ages to handle the system.
Automatic indicators simplify use
Patients can easily see the level of oxygen as the cylinder is being filled on the fill level indicator. Cylinders can be topped off to make partial fills. The system automatically detects whether a 3,000 or 2,000 PSI cylinder is attached.
Universal compatibility reduces operating costs
Service providers can use this system with their existing concentrators, oxygen conserving devices (OCDs), and regulators to avoid extra equipment costs.
50% quieter than other devices for a pleasant environment
This system makes half the noise of comparable devices so patients can easily converse with other people, watch TV and hear the doorbell without straining their ears.
Low-maintenance design for fewer service calls
The low maintenance design enables service providers to lower service costs for additional savings. The intuitive design makes it easy for patients to use, which means less service and nuisance calls.
*When filling, 3 LPM of oxygen is available with a 5 liter concentrator (EverFlo and Milennium) and up to 7 LPM is available with a 10 liter concentrator (Milennium M10).

How does an oxygen concentrator work?
An Oxygen Concentrator is an electrical piece of equipment. You plug it in to the wall outlet of your home. Make sure it has at least 6 inches of room all around it to allow ample air flow. When you turn the machine on, it will bring in air from the room around it. First, the air passes through a couple of filters to clean the air before it enters the compressor. Once inside, the compressor will pump the air into a pair of Sieve Beds. Once the Sieve Beds are pressurized, the material inside called Zeolite will cling on to the Nitrogen, and pass on the Oxygen and other trace gasses to the patient. Every ten to twelve seconds, the internal Valves will switch the air from one Sieve Bed to the other. This produces a rhythmic "breathing" sound from your Oxygen Concentrator, and is normal. During the breathing of your Oxygen Concentrator, the Nitrogen that was in the Sieve Bed is released back in to the rooms atmosphere. Oxygen Concentrators are designed to run 24 hours a day, seven days a week if needed.
What percentage of oxygen does an Oxygen Concentrator deliver? Oxygen Concentrators are designed to reliably deliver 90% oxygen +/- 3% at any flow rate. This purity has been tested to be clinically acceptable for long-term oxygen therapy.
How often should I clean filters and other accessories? If equipped, the foam Cabinet Filter on your Oxygen Concentrator should be rinsed in your sink every week. Let it air dry before placing back in the Oxygen Concentrator. The bubble humidifier should be washed daily using a mild detergent and hot water. Tubing, Cannulas, etc are not to be cleaned. Simply dispose of and replace as needed.
Can I purchase a Low Flow (Pediatric) meter for my Oxygen Concentrator? Most Oxygen Concentrators can be ordered with, or retrofit with a Pediatric Flor Meter. Please call for availability.
What length of Oxygen Tubing can I use with my Oxygen Concentrator? The maximum recommendation is not to exceed a Bubble Humidifier, a 50 foot long extension hose, and a 7 foot long Nasal Cannula
How can I transport an Oxygen Concentrator in the car? The optimum way to transport an Oxygen Concentrator is to buckle it in to the back seat, or place it on the rear floor of your vehicle. If necessary, you can safely lay it on it's back in the trunk if it is securely held in place.
Can I use my Oxygen Concentrator overseas? The Oxygen Concentrators listed on this site are made specifically for US Voltage requirements, which is 110 Volts and 60Hz
What is Turn Down technology? This Oxygen Concentrator incorporates Turn Down technology. The internal Circuit Board constantly monitors the flow rate and will slow down the compressor at lower Flow Rates. As a result the unit runs cooler and less power is consumed. In turn, you will have a lower power bill, and the Oxygen Concentrator should run longer.
How can I tell if the oxygen purity is good? If equipped with a Low Purity Sensor, as long as the Green LED light is illuminated, you know that the Oxygen Concentrator is making at least 85% purity Oxygen. If for any reason the Purity falls below therapeutic levels, the Yellow LED light will illuminate. Contact your provider if you notice this.
