Oxygen generation system based on the technology developed at CGPL, IISC, is installed at the Pobbathi Medical Centre, Bengaluru. It was commissioned on 27th July 2021 and inaugurated by BBMP Commissioner, Gaurav Gupta. The oxygen generation system, also known by S3 (S-cube), works on the principle of Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA), where it draws ambient air through a compressor along with a conditioning system to remove any contaminants before separating oxygen. The generated oxygen fulfils the quality requirements prescribed by Indian Pharmacopeia and can be used in ICUs/CCUs/OTs and other clinical wards. S3 installed at the Pobbathi Medical Centre catered to the needs of 100s of Covid-19 patients affected during the second wave.
