The Importance of the Inogen One G5 Replacement Column Sieve Beds
When it comes to sieve beds, without functioning replacement column sieve beds your Inogen One G5 is essentially useless.
The sieve beds are located in the replacement columns and they are responsible for turning normal, ambient air into medical grade oxygen.
As you use your Inogen One G5, your sieve beds are working nonstop to filter out impurities in the air to provide you with the medical grade oxygen you need.
But, as you continue to use your Inogen One G5, the more wear and tear you put on your sieve beds.
So, rather than requiring you to send your concentrator in for warranty repair, leaving you without a machine, Inogen conveniently made the sieve beds a replaceable accessory that you can do at home!
Now, depending on how often you use your concentrator and your climate your sieve beds may last up to 18 months, or they may last 12 months.
It really all depends on your personal situation.
To help you prevent any down time where you won’t be able to use your concentrator, your Inogen One G5 will notify you BEFORE you actually need sieve beds so you still have time to order your replacement columns.
