MP Preneet Kaur today inaugurated the second pressure swing adsorption (PSA) oxygen generation plant with a capacity of 600 litre per minute (LPM) at the super-specialty building of Government Rajindra Hospital.

The new plant enhanced the oxygen generation capacity of the super-specialty building to 1,950 LPM, she said. Besides, three more PSA plants of 1,000 LPM each and a 20-KL liquid medical oxygen plant would be commissioned soon.

“These PSA plants will immensely be beneficial in meeting the escalating demand of medical oxygen. These plants will help in making Patiala self-sufficient in oxygen in view of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said the Patiala MP. — TNS
