In this article, I had researched and collected information about the best open source oxygen concentrators.
All these oxygen concentrator designs and technical information are available online and free to download so that you can start making it your own.
As we all know because of the covid-19 pandemic since the rate of affected people all over the world has been increased drastically.
So we need more medical equipment and supplies to meet the requirement of hospitals and patients.
And the requirement of compressed treated oxygen is very high, and also because of lockdown around the different parts of the country and states supply chain is also disrupted.
In this situation, the maker’s communities are coming forward and started making oxygen concentrators locally to meet the peak demands to save the lives of our people.
So, here I am sharing a few open-source designs that you can work on and be ready for any future emergency.
OxiKit is an open-source high-flow oxygen concentrator developed by the highly experienced team of OxiKit.
The complete part list / BOM with assembly instruction is available for download for free.
Even they are offering a completely assembled and tested setup ready for use.
They also have a kit available for the product that you can assemble at your home with the required toolkits.
This machine will be able to provide 24 liters per minute (LPM) of O2 with 92% concentration.
Indian Makers community, Maker’s Asylum Foundation has also launched a crowdfunding campaign to overcome the shortage of oxygen requirement in India.
OpenOX MKI is also an open-source Hardware Oxygen Concentrator.
You can find the complete technical specification with ready-to-build design files & firmware on their GitHub page.
This oxygen concentrator design was done in Autodesk Fusion 360 software.
It has been developed by the DIY makers of Maker Asylum, It’s a complete open source development with all the docs, designs, and engineering details are available to use for free on the Github page.
