Aaditya Thackeray inaugurates Oxygen plant in Hiranandani Hospital- 700 litres oxygen per minute

Aditya Thackeray, Cabinet Minister for Tourism and Environment, Government of Maharashtra on a virtual platform, inaugurated Mumbai’s first Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA ) Oxygenator at the Dr L H Hiranandani Hospital. This is Mumbai’s response to ensure that the city hospitals never have to be worried that there is no oxygen supply because of increased demand for any reason whatsoever.

The PSA Oxygenator is a machine that extracts the oxygen from the atmospheric air, by a process of filtration of nitrogen, carbon dioxide and other impurities. The oxygen is then transferred to a tank and compressed at a pressure of 4 bar. This is next pumped into the hospital’s gas manifold and then to the hospital oxygen pipeline. The equipment installed in the hospital provides 700 litres of oxygen per minute and the purity is 94 to 05%. The same is acceptable by Indian Pharmacopeia standards for hospital supply. The equipment is manufactured in India, said Dr Chatterjee, CEO Dr L H Hiranandani Hospital Dr Niranjan Hiranandani, Founder and Managing Director Hiranandani Group of Companies and the Chief Managing Trustee of the hospital, recounted the exemplary work that the hospital had done and praised the Government’s handling of the second wave of COVID

Shri Aaditya Thackeray, stated that the virus did not differentiate between Public and Private Organizations and so both the Public and Private sectors have to work together for getting over the situation. He mentioned that there was a greater need for PSA generators in Mumbai to make the city less dependent on liquid medical oxygen. He lauded the visionary approach of the management of the Hiranandani Group of Companies
