Maintenance for Oxygen Equipment
What are the key considerations when designing a sustainability plan for oxygen supply?
Key points for sustainability of an oxygen supply system begin with identification of a cost analysis for operational expenses:
- Cost of power to operate 24/7 – include cost of grid power and diesel fuel for back-up generators.
- Cost of spare parts package that is specific for the type of equipment to be installed. For example: key equipment for spare parts includes the air compressor, PSA generator and the booster compressor for filling cylinders (if filling cylinders). Budget for the spare parts and confirm the supply chain to order and import the spare parts.
- Staffing costs of Engineers for service and daily operations.
- Cost of service contracts for outside service provider to do regular maintenance
