Hyderabad: As a part of its CSR initiative, Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) handed over a Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) Oxygen Generator to the Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) Medical College, Sanathnagar on Monday. Commodore Siddharth Mishra (Retd), CMD, BDL, handed it over to the medical college in the presence of Dean, ESIC Medical College, Prof Srinivas and other staff members.
The system, which has a capacity of producing 960 litres per minute, is equivalent to 170-220 cylinders per day. It also has an in-built manifold for secondary oxygen supply in case of power failure or malfunction. This is the second oxygen generator contributed by BDL to fight against the ongoing pandemic. Earlier this year, a similar system was handed over to the Military Hospital, Secunderabad by BDL.
Mishra said that the oxygen generator will be useful to the needy and aid medical students in their learning. Since the pandemic started, BDL made several contributions to help fight the crisis, including conducting awareness programmes in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, he added.
