A 1000 litre cylinder can be filled by it in under 5 minutes as claimed by PRO(Defence)Srinagar.
This Plant will make the hospital self-sufficient in taking care of oxygen needs not only during future pandemics but also in managing medical & surgical cases which include on an average 100 hospital admissions, 1500 OPD cases & 8-10 surgeries per month, said PRO (Defence) Srinagar.
