Oxygen Consumption & Cost Calculations
How do you determine the entire cost of a PSA plant?
Add the local cost of human resources of plant managers, operators, laborers and security and the operational cost of grid power and/or diesel fuel for the backup generator to the other costs of a 200 LPM capacity plant. The other costs of the 200 LPM oxygen plant cost with cylinder filling capacity will vary by vendor but estimate $200,000 USD. Time to order, deliver and install is approximately 4-6 months depending on the vendor and the supply chain efficiency. Maintenance of spare parts is estimated at $12,000 -$15,000 USD per year, plus service contract at local price. Added cost of infrastructure support for power supply, backup generator power supply, shipping, taxes, and installation cost is based on location and local costs.
