The Nidek Mark 5 Nuvo Lite Home Oxygen Concentrator is an ultra-compact home concentrator unit. Its durable exterior and made-to-last parts, along with the sturdy handle and lockable castors, make it easy to transport from room to room. The Nuvo Lite is a continuous flow oxygen concentrator, meaning it constantly delivers oxygen to the patient. This home oxygen device can deliver up to 5 liters of oxygen per minute, and can reach oxygen purity in under three minutes. It’s reliable, quiet design makes it a reputable choice for those that require supplemental oxygen.
The Nidek Mark 5 features 12 unique oxygen delivery systems, ranging from 0.125 LPM to a maximum output of 5 LPM. No matter the individual needs, this oxygen concentrator delivers. To change the amount of oxygen delivered, users can simply turn the flow control valve on the intuitive control panel of the device. A humidifier bottle can be attached to the unit for users who experience dry nasal passages or who live in drier climates.
LED indicator lights on the display panel indicate the oxygen concentrator’s operational status: a green LED indicates the device is ready for use, while a red light indicates a system fault. The operating volume of the Nuvo Lite is around 40 dBA, roughly the volume of a library.
As the Nuvo Lite is a home oxygen concentrator, it does not need to be connected to a battery for external power. It averages approximately 330W in power consumption.
How Does It Work?
The air that enters the Mark 5 Nuvo Lite Oxygen Concentrator is filtered by an external cabinet air filter and then passes through the suction tube and fine filter. The suction sound of the compressor is silenced by the suction tube. The pressurized air coming from the compressor goes to a pair of 3-way solenoid valves through a heat exchanger. The purpose of the heat exchanger is to reduce the temperature of the compressed air. The nitrogen is then extracted from the air so that the device can deliver only the high purity oxygen by passing the air through the sieve beds that contain molecular sieve.
