Why veterinarians should ONLY use a "Steel Class C" Hyperbaric Chamber for treating animals:


Only HVM's Animal specific "Class C" chambers are built with steel and thick borosilicate glass construction.


Steel chambers eliminate the possibility of "crazing," and are engineered specifically 

to limit outside distractions and keep the animal safe and comfortable.

Unlimited Life Cycle

HVM's Steel "Class C" cylinders do NOT have a predetermined life cycle and can last the life of the chamber with standard maintenance.


Animal scratching of the internal surface of the acrylic tube would constitute "crazing," which is a network of fine cracks. Deep crazing (.010") can compromise the integrity of the acrylic cylinder and ultimately cause it to rupture, which can lead to serious injury to both the animal and the operator.

Limited Life Cycle

Acrylic cylinders have a limited life cycle, at which time they should have a complete factory overhaul.  Estimated Cost:  $30-50K

mild hyperbaric CHAMBER

Mild acrylic & inflatable chambers are NOT considered true hyperbaric chambers, they are only capable of pressurizations reaching 1.3 atmospheres or less, this is called "mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy" (mHBOT). They cannot promote bone and tissue growth and can actually increase growth of undesirable aerobic bacteria.


The integrity of acrylic & inflatable chambers can be compromised by animals and are NOT safe for veterinary use.
