Oxygen (O2) is used across a wide range of industries, from aquaculture to bioenergy, metallurgy, and pharmaceutical production. In the past, companies could only get oxygen from vendors. Now, however, there is a much better option for most of them: The on-site generation of oxygen. It allows professional users of oxygen users to become producers.

How an O2 generator works: Pressure Swing Adsorption
Atlas Copco oxygen generators use pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology. The generator consists of two separate pressure vessels filled with zeolite molecular sieve (ZMS) material that separates the oxygen from the incoming air. At any time, one of these vessels produces oxygen while the other is “regenerating” its saturated ZMS.
