On Site Gas Celebrates 30 Years in Business

Newington, C.T., December 30, 2017 – On Site Gas Systems, Inc. began producing nitrogen and oxygen generators 30 years ago in Newington, Connecticut, and today their products are used worldwide. Over the years, they have earned countless awards and paved the way for the industry. They continue to be an innovator and are dedicated to manufacturing cost-saving, reliable oxygen and nitrogen generation systems for numerous applications.
Frank Hursey founded On Site Gas Systems, Inc. in 1987. Previously, he worked on NASA’s Apollo Program as a key part of the breathing air teamFollowing that, Hursey helped create one of the first oxygen concentrators that was approved for home-use. After these experiences, Hursey decided to use his expertise of the nitrogen and oxygen generation industry to form On Site Gas Systems, Inc.
Bob Wolff states, “On Site Gas Systems continues to bring Frank’s passion for science into our daily operations. We strive to provide industrial and medical nitrogen and oxygen generation solutions that (improve) the way companies operate.”
In 2008, their Portable Oxygen Generating System (POGS) earned On Site Gas Systems, Inc. the Connecticut Quality Improvement Award (CQIA) Platinum Innovation Prize. The FDA-approved system allows medical oxygen generation even in the most remote and harsh locations. It is used to save lives every day by the military, first responders, emergency disaster reliefoperations, hospitals and health clinics.

What You Need to Know About the Maintenance of Your Nitrogen or Oxygen Generator

Our on site nitrogen and oxygen generators are simple to use and don’t require much upkeep. However, just like most things you use on a regular basis, annual maintenance is strongly recommended. Here is a look at what questions you should ask yourself to see if it is time for maintenance on your oxygen or nitrogen generator, as well as an overview of why this maintenance is so important.

Questions to Ask

If you are unsure if your nitrogen or oxygen generator is in need of maintenance, you simply need to ask yourself these seven questions. If you answer yes to any of them, maintenance is very strongly recommended.

  • Does the HMI show any maintenance messages? This is a clear indicator it is time to have your oxygen or nitrogen generator looked at.
  • Has it been more than 5,000 hours since the last maintenance service was performed? If so, it is a good idea to have it checked again.
  • Can you see any water or oil within the filter housings? This should not be present and should be looked at.
  • Do you hear any abnormal sounds or notice any unusual processes as your nitrogen or oxygen generator is working? It is always better to have them checked and have them be nothing than to ignore them and have them lead to serious damage.
  • Is your purity level the same as it was when you first received the oxygen or nitrogen generator? If it has changed, schedule maintenance ASAP.
  • Have you changed the filters recently? They should be replaced on a regular basis depending on how often you use the generator and the type of filters the system uses. Particle filters usually need to be changed every three months, while coalescing filters should be changed every six months, and carbon filters need to be replaced once per year.
  • Does your system have a T70X-V or an N-1100 sensor? If so, when was the last time it was changed? If it has been more than a year, it should be replaced now.

Why Maintenance Is Crucial

Even though maintenance to your nitrogen or oxygen generator may seem burdensome or unnecessary, trust us; you will be glad you took the time to do it. Regular maintenance will help catch small issues before they become major ones. It will extend the life of your nitrogen or oxygen generator, and it will make sure your equipment is operating at its best.
