2. The medical molecular sieve oxygen generation unit should be composed of air compressor, air storage tank, drying equipment, molecular sieve O2 generator, oxygen storage tank, etc. If necessary, it should include booster.

3. The exhaust port of molecular sieve generator shall be equipped with muffler.

4. The medical molecular sieve oxygen generator unit shall be equipped with operation monitoring, oxygen concentration and moisture, carbon monoxide impurity content monitoring and alarm systems.

5. Backflow prevention measures shall be taken for each supply branch of the supply source of medical molecular sieve oxygen generator, and gas sampling port shall be set at the outlet of the supply source.

6. The main supply source medical molecular sieve oxygen generator, standby or standby combined gas source shall meet the peak oxygen consumption of medical and health institutions.

7. When the oxygen concentration of the unit is lower than the specified value or the impurity content exceeds the standard, and the real-time detection facility fails, the medical molecular sieve oxygen generator shall be automatically isolated and switched to the standby or emergency standby oxygen source.

8. Medical and health institutions shall not set up a system for filling the gas produced by the medical molecular sieve oxygen generator into the high-pressure cylinder.
