Maintaining your Respironics EverFlo Oxygen Concentrator on a regular basis is critical to the overall performance of your device. Changing your filters will assist you in maintaining consistent oxygen flow, preventing overheating, and maintaining a clean oxygen supply.
When should the filter on a Respironics EverFlo oxygen concentrator be changed, and how often?
The EverFlo filters from Respironics require little maintenance. As a result, you only need to replace them every two years. New intake air filters can be purchased quickly and easily on the internet.
What Is the Function of the Intake Filter?
The intake filter is responsible for screening ambient air as it enters the oxygen concentrator. When dust and other airborne pollutants are captured, they are prevented from clogging the machine and from being transferred into the oxygen supply you breathe.
How Does It Affect the Engine if the Intake Filter Isn’t Changed?
Eventually, airborne dust and pollutants will clog the intake vent, preventing it from functioning properly. In order to draw in clean air, the oxygen concentrator must work harder. This can result in overheating and a reduction in the purity of the oxygen being drawn in.
