Leicestershire company increases production of vital equipment for NHS

Loughborough company, JRE Precision is working with healthcare providers at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak to produce vital equipment needed for NHS hospitals.

With many years’ experience in the design and manufacture of regulators under its PRESREG brand, particularly in the healthcare sector where strict health and safety guidelines must be adhered to, JRE Precision is currently working on two key products to help the NHS through the Coronavirus pandemic.

JRE Precision’s oxygen regulators feed the main circuits in hospitals, which then feed through to the essential ventilators. The regulators are fixed to a panel, which is attached to the main oxygen supply. This allows 3,000 litres of oxygen to be delivered per minute through one regulator – on larger installations more can be added. New hospitals could require 24 tonnes of oxygen every 7 hours. The demand for the JRE Oxygen Regulators is usually around 100 units per year, but the current situation has called for 70 units in just 2-3 weeks, which will be used in existing and new hospitals.

In addition, JRE Precision has been approached to produce a prototype of a unit to go into the regulator itself. The demand for ventilators has increased enormously and the successful product once tested and approved will require 30,000 units as soon as possible.

JRE – whilst following its own social distancing procedures – designed and prototyped a product which passed tests in just 4 days last week. They are currently working on a second prototype under the same tight timescales.

JRE Precision has been overwhelmed by support from other businesses at this important time, offering additional machinery and free factory space, should it be needed.
