ta3 pushThe Twin-Air™ compressor system has been designed to provide Grade-D breathing air to 3 workers wearing pressure demand respirators. The TA-3 has twin ASME receiver tanks that act as the mounting frame for the compressor. The use of the receiver tanks provides air that has been cooled to within 10 degrees of the ambient temperature. We've added pneumatic tires for ease of mobility in rough terrain and a bottom skid plate for going up or down stairs. This plate becomes the frame for the addition of a reserve air cylinder on the model TA-3EA.   This compressor is not designed for use with constant flow respirators or Vortex cooling tubes.

TA-1

Model COMP-1
Shown above with TA-1 Compressor and BB15-CO Breather Box 

Comp-1™ Breathing Air Compressor System

Designed for use with Two Pressure Demand Respirators Only

The TA-1 compressor has been designed to operate 1 or 2 pressure demand airline respirators.  Grade-D filtration must be provided in the form of a 1 or 2 worker Breather Box™.  The TA-1 uses a 115/230 VAC 60 Hz electrical supply. Model TA-3G uses gasoline engine for mobile operations. USDA food grade oil is used in the compressor air end. This compressor is not designed for use with constant flow respirators or Vortex cooling tubes.

Compressors for use in IDLH and Hazardous Environments

COMP-3EA

COMP-3EA™ Breathing Air Compressor System

Designed for use with Pressure Demand Respirators Only

The Auto-Air™ Compressor System Package

This compressor system is designed to provide automatic back-up air for up to 3 workers in the event of compressor failure. An optional 60 or 87cf cylinder can be installed on the compressor frame to provide additional egress air.

The package consists of the Auto-Air™ Breather Box™ model BB30-COAA, the TA-3EA compressor supplied with a CGA-347 high pressure reducing regulator, primary and secondary hoses.  NIOSH requires the use of a 5 minute airline escape respirator when working in IDLH environments. Our Auto-Air™ feature does not replace the NIOSH requirement, however, some work environments may require longer than a 5 minute airline hip bottle to safely egress the hazardous area. This compressor is not designed for use with constant flow respirators or Vortex cooling tubes.

Explosion-Proof Auto-Air™ Compressor

Designed for use with Pressure Demand Respirators Only

Specifications:

  • 110psi output air pressure, 3 couplings supplied
  • Explosion-proof electric motor - 230 VAC, 3 phase
  • Explosion-proof on/off switch
  • 25ft. power cord, no plug, user wired per NEC requirements 
  • 3-worker operation - pressure demand respirators only
  • Full automatic back-up air feature, up to 4500psi capability
  • Pneumatic visual indicator and audible alarm for system failure
  • Grade-D, 3 stage filtration with 48cfm flow capacity
  • Intrinsically Safe carbon monoxide monitor, CSA approved for 9-volt DC operation in Class 1, Division 1, Groups C and D environments
  • Twin-Air™ tank design for cool breathing air output, ASME coded
  • Holds one SCBA cylinder up to 4500psi back-up air
  • Steel air control panel with high pressure regulator
  • Pneumatic 10" tires

This compressor is not designed for use with constant flow respirators or Vortex cooling tubes.
