Oxygen cylinders are a standard method of oxygen delivery, along with oxygen concentrators. Oxygen cylinders should be treated with respect, and not left out in the sun or used outside of the case they came in. 

Oxygen cylinders can last for different amounts of time depending on the flow rate and the size of the cylinder:

  • 1 liter/min: 680 minutes, or 11 hours and 20 minutes
  • 2 liter/min: 340 minutes, or 5 hours and 40 minutes
  • 3 liter/min: 226 minutes, or 3 hours and 46 minutes
  • 4 liter/min: 170 minutes, or 2 hours and 50 minutes
  • 5 liter/min: 136 minutes, or 2 hours and 16 minutes
  • 8 liter/min: 85 minutes, or 1 hour and 25 minutes
  • 10 liter/min: 68 minutes, or 1 hour and 8 minutes
  • 15 liter/min: 44 minutes 

Oxygen generators are used in many industries, including hospitals, production facilities, computer chip manufacturing, glass blowing, and wastewater treatment
