The proposed technology will take ambient air, and using only a low-power blower and power supply deliver concentrated high pressure oxygen of controlled pressure. The device has no technical pressure limit, and we have tested prototypes to 1000 psi. The high pressures achievable allow for both oxygen concentration and direct filling of oxygen life-support tanks. There are no other sub-systems necessary for this device and, any NASA manned space mission could use this technology.
Giner is developing oxygen concentrators for organ preservation through persufflation. Organ persufflation is the preservation of organs by directly passing oxygen through the organ veins. Giner has shown that viability can be greatly prolonged by applying a constant concentrated stream of oxygen.
