Helping you overcome the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is now our most important goal! Our products are critical components of life-saving devices such as ventilators and oxygen concentrators used to treat Coronavirus patients.
We provide the healthcare industry with some of the most necessary components. These include pumps for Ventilators, Stationary Oxygen Concentrators, Portable Oxygen Concentrators, and equipment for the supply of suction from a centralized vacuum system. We are doing our best to provide our solutions to customers in need.
Thomas compressors and vacuum pumps are used in life-saving devices such as ventilators and oxygen concentrators that provide mechanical ventilation in hospital settings. These can be utilized to treat patients suffering with COVID-19, and are used across the healthcare industry including intensive care.
Thomas pumps continue to set the standard for stationary oxygen concentrator pumps through development projects with global leaders in the home health care markets. By combining the efficiencies and operating characteristics of BLDC WOB-L technology with lightweight chassis materials, we are able to meet the challenges of an evolving market for portable respiratory equipment. The ability to introduce products that keep pace with market demands has proven to be our plan for success.
Aspirators are widely used in the medical industry today and are found in hospitals, clinics, and doctors’ and dentists’ offices. An aspirator is an apparatus that creates a partial vacuum to remove fluids, tissue or foreign material from the body. The purpose of oral suctioning is to maintain a patent airway and improve oxygenation by removing mucous secretions and foreign material.
Portable electrostatic spray systems incorporate a patented nozzle which atomizes and applies a positive electric charge to disinfectant atomized particles leaving the nozzle.
The positively charged disinfectant particles are attracted to negative grounded surfaces.
This allows all surfaces to be coated 360° with the disinfectant spray.
With WOB_L piston pumps 2660 series in our range, Thomas can offer the most appropriate technology to disinfectant sprayer application.
Capnography monitors the concentration or partial pressure of carbon dioxide (CO2) in respiratory gases.
This measures the degree of oxygenation and ventilation in both intubated and spontaneously breathing patients.
The gas diaphragm pump draws exhaled breath from an intubated patient in to the patient monitor for continuous monitoring purposes.
Long-term illness requires the highest standard of a hospital bed. Patients who spend prolonged periods laying still will develop uncomfortable bedsores. A medical air mattress is a bed consisting of many cells. Thomas offers air compressor pumps for inflating and deflate cells, which improves the blood circulation and minimizes bedsore. The additional benefit is a better comfort of the sleep of the patient even during elongated recovery.
SOCs and POCs are commonly used to treat patients suffering from respiratory disease and illnesses. These devices provide a steady stream of medical oxygen to respiratory patients who require a greater levels of oxygen concentration than present in ambient air.
Thomas vacuum pumps used in ventilators, which are used for the purpose of airway clearance in intensive care.
Thomas vacuum pump features are:
Thomas compressors for Stationary Oxygen Concentrators and Portable Oxygen Concentrators. An Oxygen concentrator utilizes a compressor to change ambient oxygen of 21% and boosts it to between 85% to 90%.
Thomas compressor features are:

Wuxi, China--- Many thousands of units of Thomas flagship Nexus compressors have come off the assembly line since Thomas Wuxi plant resumed work on February 10, 2020. The increasing inquiries and the rocketing orders were mostly from ventilator OEM customers, with requests to ship to Wuhan ASAP.
According to the latest published guideline by the Chinese National Health Committee to cure novel coronavirus, the medical ventilators equipped with a standalone air compressor module were listed as the necessity in ICU. Their function to switch from a central air supply to a standalone air compressor module could well fit into many makeshift medical centers.
Thomas’ flagship Nexus series was selected by China’s top-ranking ventilator manufacturers that features our proprietary WOB-L® piston technology that was patented in 1976. The Nexus series is renowned for its long life, hassle-free maintenance and quiet in operation. Its diverse platform that can be configured with one or two pistons, 2.25” or 2.75” bore, a wide range of strokes, single or two stage pressure or vacuum. It is also highly customizable. All of these features with the same exterior shell size. This makes the Nexus series the industry benchmark in various medical applications, especially for ventilator and oxygen concentrators to fight against COVID-19.
Since early March, inquiries for the Nexus series have been skyrocketing. Our Chinese ventilator customers brought their successful star products for COVID-19 to Italy, Germany, and the whole European continent. In late March, we received an inquiry from India about purchasing over thirty three thousand compressors units for ventilators. Leveraging our global production capacity in Wuxi, China, and Monroe, USA, Thomas made a bold proposal to deliver all compressors within three months. Thomas ultimately won this deal with the final delivery commitment to meet the quantity ramp-up in a short lead time. No other competitor could match our proposal because of our ability to instantly respond, reliable delivery, and recognized quality.
Ventilators and O2 concentrators are just one of Nexus series wide selection of COVID-19 applications. This Thomas flagship model could also be used in a disinfectant sprayer. With atomized H2O2 pressured by the Nexus compressor, the public area of hospitals could be coated with disinfectant spray thoroughly, as the positively charged disinfectant particles are attracted to negative grounded surfaces.
Besides the large size compressor, Thomas could also provide smaller size gas/liquid diaphragm pumps in a comprehensive fluid path solution for IVD analyzer OEMs, ranging from precise reagent sampling and dosing, waste removal and needle cleaning, etc. Recently, the Thomas 1210 liquid diaphragm pump has helped a leading Chinese CLIA manufacturer to create its quick coronavirus antibody detection solution in Europe. This detection only takes 15 minutes, and 1200 detection cycles could be done within one hour. This China-developed solution has been covered by the German ARD 1 channel and French TFI TV station recently.
To fight against COVID-19 is a cause for all humankind, which involves relentless cross-border and cross-disciplinary collaboration. Thomas, an OEM pump brand, now under Ingersoll-Rand - Precision & Science Technology Group, is committed to working closely with medical device OEM customers worldwide to pump up new hope in the battle against COVID-19 worldwide.
