HomeFill Compressors

GENERAL GUIDELINES
  • A HomeFill unit allows you to use oxygen at home while you fill portable tanks at the same time.
  • An oxygen concentrator does not reduce the amount of oxygen in the room significantly because of the low amount of oxygen required.
  • Post NO SMOKING signs prominently in all areas where oxygen is used or stored.
  • Oxygen can only be distributed at the direction/prescription of a licensed physician.


GENERAL PLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS
  • Plug your oxygen concentrator and compressor into a properly grounded & polarized wall outlet.
    • Do not use an extension cord.
    • Do not plug into an outlet controlled by a switch/dimmer.
    • If you are unsure if your outlet is properly grounded/polarized, contact an electrician.
    • Do not remove the ground connector, or file down the plug.
  • Do not block any of the air openings of the concentrator. (Some openings are located below the concentrator.)
  • Do not place the concentrator on any extremely soft surface, such as a bed, sofa, or blanket.
  • Keep at least 3 inches from walls & draperies.
  • Do not place the concentrator in a small, enclosed area, such as a closet.
  • Place the compressor on the rack provided or on a stable surface.
  • The concentrator can be placed in a different room if noise is an issue.
  • Keep the concentrator away from dirty/dusty areas.

OPERATING THE COMPRESSOR
  • Connect the compressor to the concentrator by attaching the interconnect hose into the fitting on the concentrator and the compressor.
  • Turn concentrator ON.
  • Concentrator flow rate must be set to 3 liters per minute or less on a 5 liter concentrator and 5 liters per minute or less on a 10 liter concentrator, while filling tanks.
  • Connect cylinder to the compressor.
  • Turn power switch to ON position.
  • Examine control panel lights to see filling light and full light when cylinder in done filling.
  • Remove cylinder.
  • Turn power switch on compressor to OFF position.
  • Repeat process to fill all tanks.


SAFETY
  • Oxygen is nonflammable, but supports combustion. All sources of ignition, spark/flame must be kept at least 10’ away.
  • NO SMOKING within 10’ of oxygen source including application device.
  • NO SMOKING signs posted in the house.


MAINTENANCE
  • Clean the compressor cabinet with a mild household cleaner and a non-abrasive cloth.
  • Twice a week, clean your intake air filter (sponge-like, usually located on side or back) both on the concentrator and the compressor.
    • Run it under tap water to remove all dust/dirt/lint.
    • Shake out excess water.
    • Dry with a lint free towel, or allow the filter to air-dry. (Some towels can actually clog the filter.)
    • Replace the intake filter prior to using.
    • DO NOT use the concentrator without the intake filter.
  • Keep your concentrator in good working order. Call our office at any time to arrange for a periodic concentrator check.
