The power button – They typically stay illuminated so you can tell if the machine is in the ‘on’ or the ‘off’ position.
Cannula and tubing – The nasal cannula is the thin tube inserted into the nose that delivers the airflow. Connected to this, with soft plastic, is the tubing, which allows the oxygen to flow from the oxygen concentrator to your nose.
Capacitors – Similar to a battery, a capacitor stores and releases electrical energy. These oxygen concentrator parts have two conductors and an insulator between them. If you think your concentrator is struggling to emit the same power as usual, get in touch with us.
Motor mounts – A motor mount is a piece of metal that can withstand force and torque generated by the operation of the oxygen concentrator. A piece of rubber is used to absorb and dampen the vibrations that the motor produces. Problems with motor mounts are quite easily noticeable, and not too difficult to repair.
Humidifier bottles – These are attached to oxygen concentrators to moisten the air. It warms the oxygen and mixes it with water to do so.
