HomeFill
The HomeFill system is a flexible ambulatory system allowing
patients to fill a HomeFill cylinder.
The system comes in four parts:
• HomeFill concentrator - works like a standard concentrator
• HomeFill compressor - connects to the HomeFill concentrator
allowing you to fill HomeFill cylinders
• HomeFill cylinder - cylinder capable of being filled using the
HomeFill compressor and concentrator
• Stand - used to mount the HomeFill compressor onto the
concentrator

Caution
Ensure the concentrator is kept upright at all times.
Plug your concentrator machine into the mains, do not use an
extension lead.
Make sure the flow rate on the concentrator machine is set to the
flow rate ordered by the health care professional.
Do not restrict the ventilation around the concentrator machine.
Assembling HomeFill
• Place the stand on top of the concentrator
• Place the compressor on top of the stand
• Insert one end of the interconnect hose into the outlet fitting on
the back of the concentrator and push the metal clip to secure
• Insert the opposite end of the interconnect hose into the inlet
fitting on the side of the compressor, again use the metal clip to
secure
How to use the concentrator without the compressor
• To use the HomeFill concentrator without the compressor ensure
your compressor is switched off and there are no cylinders
attached. Plug the concentrator directly into a power socket, do
not use an extension lead
• Press the power switch - you will hear an alarm and the panel
lights will come on
• After a second the panel lights will switch off leaving only the
green system ok light on
• Check the ball in the flow meter is centred on the line marking
your prescribed flow. If for any reason the ball does not centre on
your prescribed flow rate use the knob to adjust until it does. Any
adjustment from your prescribed flow must only be made when
advised to do so by a health care professional
• When not using the device, be sure to switch it off
Caution
Never leave cylinders attached to the compressor when not being filled.
How to fill the HomeFill cylinder
1. Before filling
• Turn the concentrator on for at least 30 minutes before
attempting to refill cylinders
• Examine the pressure on the cylinder. If the pressure is below
103.5 bar/1500 psi your cylinder is ready to be refilled
When the needle on the contents gauge is in the red zone, the
cylinder needs to be filled. If the cylinder is already at 1500 psi it may
not fill when attached.
• Inspect the cylinder to ensure it has not been damaged in
anyway. If satisfied remove the cannula from the cylinder and
ensure the flow rate selector is turned to the OFF position
• Remove the cylinder and compressor fillport covers if present pinch and pull to remove
2. Attach the cylinder to the
compressor
• On the compressor push down the
outer ring of the fillport until green
dots are visible
• Hold the cylinder by the neck
(behind the contents gauge)
• Position the cylinder in the
compressor cradle
• Align the cylinder fillport with the
compressor fillport
• Push up on the outer ring of the
compressor fillport while pushing down on the cylinder - you will
hear a click once they are properly connected
3. Turn on the compressor
Switch the compressor on. The following should occur:
• 0-3 minutes: the wait (yellow) light will be illuminated while the
compressor warms up
• After 3 minutes: the filling (green) light will be lit while the
cylinder is filling
• When the cylinder is full: the filling light will turn off and the full
(green) light will switch on
It takes approximately two hours to fill a cylinder from empty
4. Remove the cylinder
• Once the cylinder is full switch the compressor off
• With one hand hold the cylinder at the back of the neck behind
the contents gauge
• With the other hand, grasp the outer ring of the connector
fillport and push down
• Lift up on the cylinder to remove the connector
• Once the cylinder is disconnected from the compressor, release
the outer ring of the compressor fillport and use two hands to
remove the cylinder from the compressor cradle
• Place the fillport covers onto both the compressor fillport and the
cylinder fillport
Caution
Never remove a cylinder from the compressor while it’s switched on.
Cleaning and maintenance
Once a day:
Clean the compressor fillport with a dry, lint free cloth and replace
the cap.
Inspect the cylinder for damage and ensure the cap is replaced when
not in use.
Weekly:
Wipe the concentrator with a damp cloth.
Wash all the foam filters in either warm soapy water, or use a
vacuum to remove any dust. There are two filters, one in the
compressor, one in the concentrator.
Caution
Always ensure the filters are dry before replacing them.
Do not operate your machine without filters.
