Hyderabad Start-Up The Phi Factory's Solution To Oxygen Shortage

As a response to the increasing demand for oxygen, which is used to treat patients suffering from Coronavirus, a Hyderabad-based startup company, The Phi Factory, has developed an oxygen generating kit named Vayuputra.

The co-founder of Phi Factory said that it is highly costly to acquire oxygen concentrators, as they cost around Rs. 90,000, and also because their availability is low. He said that while oxygen cylinders can be bought and reused, refilling them could be tedious. He said that The Phi Factory had developed an in-situ oxygen manufacturing micro reactor, which uses a catalyst and hydrogen peroxide to manufacture oxygen.

He said that Hydrogen peroxide is being used as the main ingredient as it is readily available in the market and is already being widely used in sanitizers. It is also comparatively less expensive. Reportedly, 24 liters of liquid oxygen is produced per one liter of Hydrogen peroxide. This oxygen reactor is portable and can serve 10 L/min of oxygen to two people simultaneously. The oxygen container comes at Rs. 2,500, with a consumable liquid of 20 liters, which can save a person for 12 hours. Refill cans for the containers are available at Rs. 1500 per 20 L, once the can gets empty.

The company is also ready to give the design to other companies willing to make the kits available in large numbers. Specific gloves are said to make Hydrogen Peroxide safe to work with, and it is expected that the company will produce 50,000 to one lakh units within a short time once they enter commercial-scale production.
