Best 3 10 LPM Oxygen Concentrators in India

Ever since the pandemic hit the globe, people have recognized the vitality of oxygen concentrators. While oxygen concentrators are not a new concept and work as a lifesaver for people who require long-term supplemental oxygen. The Covid-19 pandemic did introduce a multitude of new oxygen concentrators in the Indian market, some of which do not stand worthy of their claims. This makes it highly difficult for people who are suffering from the respiratory condition to decide which one to choose.

In fact, a lot of advertised home-stationary oxygen concentrators in the Indian market fail to meet the basic quality standards and do not provide the required oxygen purity at flow rates. This situation is highly dangerous for patients who rely on the publicized claims and invest in the device only to be on the receiving end of an emergency and life threat. 

This makes it vital for people with supplemental oxygen needs to gain perspective on which oxygen concentrators to buy in the Indian market. Reflecting on this agenda, we have curated the top 3 10LPM oxygen concentrators in the Indian market of international quality standards. The list addresses not just the best concentrators but the features and price range which gives them the top spot.

Let us get into it then-

AirSep Intensity 10

AirSep Intensity 10 is not just the best oxygen concentrator in the global market but also one of the oldest and is commonly known for its excellent features. The device is well known for offering a high and stable oxygen flow with a purity of 90 to 96% at flow rates of 2 to 10 LPM. AirSep Intensity 10 is manufactured by a USA-based medical brand Caire Inc. and is available at a price range of 1.75 lakh to 1.85 lakh in the Indian market. It combines high flow and high pressure to supply a 10LPM rate of supplemental oxygen to the patients. This works by its tracheostomy set-up which has eliminated the need for an external compressor. Adding to its proven quality, the device has an outlet pressure of 20psi, which is the highest in the 10LPM range. It is both CE and FDA-approved, which is a true testament to its international quality. 

The device is considered a silent home-stationary concentrator, with a sound level of 55 dB. Hence, for those people who want a concentrator which will allow them to continue their household or office work without the distracting sound, AirSep Intensity 10 will work great. Moreover, it works well for people who live at an altitude of 10,000ft, thanks to the strong compressor. With an electrical consumption of 590 watts, it will add just 973.5 Rs per month to your existing electricity bill. This feature of AirSep Intensity 10 makes it one of the most power-efficient oxygen concentrators in the Indian market. 

DeVilbiss 10

Next in the category of top 3 oxygen concentrators in India is DeVilbiss 10 LPM, available at a price range of 1.75 lakh to 1.85 lakh, considered the lowest for any American 10LPM concentrator. This device is one of the lightest home-stationary oxygen concentrators in the global market in its flow range. DeVilbiss 10, too has an outlet pressure of 20psi, considered the highest in its range. Moreover, the device is both CE and FDA-approved, making it at par in quality, with its competitors internationally. At flow rates from 2 to 10 LPM, the device can deliver oxygen purity of 90%. 

DeVilbiss 10 LPM consumes 664 watts of power which translates to an additional 511.5 Rs to your monthly electrical bill. Moreover, with the presence of an oxygen purity indicator and a sound level of 67dB, the device speaks for its quality itself. However, the sound level might not always be a pro for people who want an almost silent oxygen concentrator. DeVilbiss 10 will work at an altitude of 5000ft, which should be considered a strong point while considering the concentrator.  

Nidek Nuvo 10 Litre

The device can work well under 5000ft. and has an outlet pressure of 15 psi, slightly lower than its counterparts. 

However, with a sound level of 58dB, it is a silent oxygen concentrator and would not distract you from your day-to-day operations with its sound. Nidek Nuvo 10LPM consumes 600 watts of power, which will add Rs 990 to your monthly electrical bills.
