It would be a good idea to have a filter on the concentrator intake.
There are commercially available filters from 3M and other companies.
Furnace filter material would be adequate.
There will be no strain on the compressor with a filter like this until it
gets plugged up, so regular maintenance or frequent replacement would be
recommended. You could contact your concentrator manufacturer and see if
they have a filter system you could purchase.
An ozone generator is sealed to outside air when it is connected to a tank,
so that is not a problem. Any spores that might come to the generator from a
concentrator could be filtered out by a one micron inline filter.
An oxygen concentrator should NOT be close to the sauna, because moisture
and stray ozone will not help its functioning. You need to get some longer
input tubing, which comes in lengths up to 50' (or shorter lengths can be
connected) and move the concentrator to another room.
Best of Health!
