He continued, when filled into a 6 m3 oxygen tube, it could be used as oxygen therapy for 2.5 hours. “If the purity level of PT TeL’s Oxygen gas has met the requirements of the quality of Oxygen from the Oxygen Concentrator, the Company needs to carry out additional testing and fulfill several other parameters in Permenkes No. 4 of 2016,” he explained.
