Ceylon Oxygen introduces first portable liquid oxygen tank solution

Ceylon Oxygen Ltd, a member of The Linde Group, has announced plans to introduce a new portable liquid oxygen tank solution, the first of its kind in Sri Lanka, at the National Hospital’s Cardiology Unit in Colombo by May this year. This follows the successful installation of a 21,000 litre fixed liquid oxygen tank at the main building of the National Hospital in mid-March 2010.

Ceylon Oxygen’s Chief Executive Mr Niran Pieris said, “For medium-sized and larger hospitals, the move to using a tank solution offers tremendous benefits compared to the existing, conventional practice of using a large number of small cylinders.”

He said in a statement that large hospitals typically manage as many as 2,000 oxygen cylinders at any given time which are in use at the hospital, or are being transported and refilled. This circulation of cylinders is onerous to manage and requires a great deal of manual handling which carries certain risks. Using a tank solution is simple, safer and far more economical as the labour and transport costs associated with a tank solution are much lower compared to using cylinders. Moreover, in terms of fixed cost, the tank itself costs less than maintaining a large stock of cylinders, enabling our customer to enjoy significant savings overall, he said.
