200 liters per minute, producing 40 cylinders of oxygen per day
The oxygen production plant set up at the Kottagudem main hospital is capable of producing 200 liters per minute (with a capacity of 12 cubic liters) i.e. 40 cylinders per day. Similar plants will be set up in Bhupalpally, Ramakrishnapur and Bellampalli area hospitals in another ten days.
At Kottagudem main hospital during corona, about 45 to 60 oxygen cylinders are required per day. Oxygen is being brought from Hyderabad at great expense so far. But now that the plant has been set up, there is no need to rely on others for oxygen.
