Oxygen concentrator


#1

Hi,

Is anyone using an oxygen concentrator in their studio. I know of
lamp lamp workers who use them.

I need one large enough for general brazing (soldering), pouring
ingot and some light steel forging.

Any ideas?
Thanks,
Andy

Try Phil Scott at Rio Grande for good info (they sell a model that
produces 7psi); also check internet info for several companies that
rebuild medical concentrators for (mostly) glassblowers/glass flame
workers. You’ll be able to get units up to 20psi, and/or pair
several units to get the strength you need.

Yes, I work in both glass and metal and I use an oxy con for all my
torches, with quick connects to easily change which torch I’m using.
For jewelry, I have a Meco Midget torch, but my glass torches are
much bigger.

The unit I’m using is a model M-15 from Unlimited Oxygen, with
output of 8 lpm and 15 psi. Larger units are available.

I love not having to deal with O2 tanks.

I love my oxygen concentrator. I have been using one of the larger
concentrators for all of my jewelry work for over 15 years. I
haven’t purchased oxygen in over 15 years and I never run out of
oxygen. I run both my little torch and my casting torch at he same
time and have no issues.

The EX-5 will run the little torch or something like the MECO midget
or even the Swiss torch which can do casting for smaller amounts of
metal. It will not be able to run the multi-orifice tip or one of
the larger casting torches.

Larger castings with larger amounts of metal, will require volume
and slightly higher pressure than the EX-5 can handle. We can
special order the EX-10.

How much is the ex10?
