Oxygen is supplied from the central oxygen network, oxygen tank or oxygen concentrator. The generation of medical ozone requires the use of medical oxygen referred to oxygen gas with guaranteed purity of 99,9% and higher.
If oxygen is released from oxygen tanks:
- The oxygen equipment used (tank, oxygen pressure reducer, manometers and pneumatic hoses) should be in operating condition;
- The monitoring and measuring devices used should be previously tested and have an appropriate certificate;
- The tanks filled with oxygen should be stored in appropriate conditions (in special boxes equipped with attachments for oxygen tank fixation, the oxygen tank in use should be located in a fixed vertical position).
The oxygen tanks should be located away from any sources of heat at a distance of at least 1 m, open flames - 5 m. The protection plugs should be removed from oxygen tanks immediately before use. During operation the safety requirements set for use of pressurized vessels should be fulfilled
