Wilrijk, Belgium, 2013/07/05 - Atlas Copco has developed an advanced medical air plant calculation tool which assists the correct selection of a medical air plant according to the different medical gas standards of ISO7396-1, HTM02-01 or HTM2022 - AtlasCopco.com.
It is a common task for hospital engineers, developers or medical specialist to select the appropriate components for a hospital medical air plant. To help with this often complex task Atlas Copco introduces a new medical air plant calculation tool. This software tool assists selecting the size and quantity of the compressors needed, as well as the medical purifiers and the vessels for a specified flow requirement.
“This is a great tool for all who are planning to invest in a medical air plant. Now it is possible to know which model and output of equipment is needed very early in the planning process” says Kurt De Smet, Medical Competence Team Leader. “It enables the user to save both cost and time”.
From now on it takes just a few clicks to configure a complete medical air plant, by visiting the Medical website. All the user needs to do is fill in the required flow and pressure details and press the button “Calculate”. Immediately he / she will get detailed information on the “best match” for each of the medical gas standards of ISO7396-1, HTM2022 or HTM02-01.
This calculation tool uses the configurable platform of the newly launched uAIR Medical Air Plant. One of the biggest advantages of this tool is that the user can accurately size the plant according to their specific needs ensuring that it will not be over sized, resulting in potential cost savings. Moreover, this tool visualises the complete medical air plant and allows the user to request a quote or to export the results in a PDF, Word or Excel format.
