Additional Information on the DeVilbiss 5 Liter Home Oxygen Concentrator
Patented DeVilbiss Turn-Down Technology
This feature was briefly mentioned above, but it deserves a better explanation. The patented technology allows the machine to automitaclly turn down its flow cycle when you are using a setting below 2.5 LPM.
By turning down its flow cycle, the DeVilbiss home concentrator drastically cuts down on symptom pressure to reduce stess on the machine's compressor and internal fittings. This minimizes wear and tear on your concentrator and extends the life of your unit.
The Turn-Down technology also makes the DeVilbiss 5 Liter home concentrator extremely energy efficient. Compared to other 5 liter home oxygen concenrators, the DeVilbiss unit reduces power consumption by 15% or more and it can save you an average of $100 per year on your electric bill!
Caring for your cannulas is a necessity. Whether you want to clean them and reuse them or you want to replace them regularly is up to you. You can read all about cleaning your cannulas and best practices for when you should replace your cannulas here: The Importance of Changing Your Nasal Cannula
Replacing Your Filter
The DeVilbiss 5 liter concentrator is a very easy machine to take care of. It's virtually maintenance free for the first 2 years you own the machine. However, you will need to replace your filters once every 6 months to every year depending on how often you use the machine.
Cleaning the surface of your concentrator can help keep you from getting sick and it will leave your machine looking like new. All you need is a dampened cloth with mild liquid detergent and water to clean the outside of your DeVilbiss 5 Liter concentrator. You can dry it off with a towel after you wipe it down.

Unique Design to Extend the Life of The Concentrator
The DeVilbiss 5 Liter home unit was designed to last. The internal cabinet was designed to be easy to work on in order to cut back on labor costs and repair time, should your concentrator ever need it.

When DeVilbiss designed this unit, they really went the extra mile to protect your concentrator. They equipped this machine with a protected cannula fitting to prevent the cannula fitting from snapping off and it's also equipped with a recessed humidifier nook to prevent spills and water damage.. We've heard countless stories from our patients about their pets and grandkids getting a little wild and accidentally breaking the cannula fitting off of the concentrator or knocking the humidifier bottle over. So these two features are a nicely added touch.
