In a way further as a social responsibility under the determined leadership of Hon’ble Minister of Ports, Shipping & Waterways, Shri Mansukh Mandaviyaji, Deendayal Port has now installed Medical Oxygen Generator Unit, with Medical oxygen copper piping network, at State Govt. hospital, Rambaug, Gandhidham (Kutch) at the total cost of approx. Rs. 50 lakhs, to cater the treatment of patients at the hospital.
The installed oxygen generator unit at Govt. hospital, Rambaug, Gandhidham, is of having capacity 20 cu.m./ hr., i.e., 20,000 liters/hr. @ 5-6 bar pressure, which is equivalent to approx. 03 nos. Jumbo cylinders per hour, which can be utilized for treatment of COVID as well as other patients in the locality. The system will eliminate the hardship of frequent refilling the cylinders for treatment of patients which is very cumbersome process, and will ensure smooth and continuous oxygen supply to the hospital. The Oxygen Unit generates oxygen gas by the continuous process of pressure swing adsorption methods through imported Molecular oxygen sieves in pressurized state in the unit and finally delivers oxygen of minimum 93% purity. The Medical oxygen copper piping network is installed for distribution of medical oxygen gas connects to each bed oxygen-fitting of the Male & Female wards and also ICU ward in the hospital. The network pipeline consists of heavy copper seamless pipes of various sizes to assure uniform oxygen pressure distribution throughout the network with oxygen regulators, flow meter and control valves to 54 bed-points of the wards in the hospital. The pipeline network is equipped with Low oxygen pressure alarm system to alert the hospital well-before any undue oxygen supply malfunction, leakage etc.
DPT stands with Nation to fight against COVID, and services to Mankind in the area. JAI HIND.
