The PUREAIR breathing air compressors provide a portable, trailer mounted air source for breathing quality air. The direct drive , diesel compressors are available in 2 sizes - 4 and 8 man. A high pressure back up system automatically switches over and an audible and visual alarm is activated in the event of compressor failure ensuring that the supply to the users is uninterrupted. The users are supplied with cooled , filtered air which is supplied to a removable control panel. This can be positioned remotely from the compressor , uniquely serving as a means to observe status of the compressor and air supplied to users at point of entry; and additionally control entry to the area where the breathing apparatus is being used.

Food grade oil is used on the compressor to ensure that in the unlikely event of oil carry over , the pneumatic system is not contaminated. The raised air intake ensures the best possible air is supplied to the compressor and a chalwyn valve and spark arrestor are fitted as standard to comply with requirements for use on petrochemical installations.

The compressors are suitable for a range of industries including pharmaceutical, oil and gas, nuclear, civil engineering and utilities. A full range of breathing apparatus equipment, including airline breathing apparatus, air fed helmets and air fed suits can be supplied with the compressors


The Pure-air range of breathing air trailers are suited to a variety of industries such as petrochemical, nuclear, and pharmaceutical, where breathable air is required for long duration working in hazardous atmospheres.

The advantage of an air trailer is that it can be used in areas where breathing air compressors are unsuitable due to explosion risk or where environmental quality of the air is likely to be poor. Constructed to conform with standards EN139/14594 for airline breathing apparatus, high pressure cylinder banks provide a guaranteed breathable air source which is reduced down and distributed to a control panel for either 4 or 8 users.

The trailer comes in several sizes according to different requirements for duration and the number or users. As standard, all units come configured for 4 users and are supplied with 4 breathing apparatus sets and hoses.

All trailers have a main air supply and an emergency air supply - when the main air supply fails the emergency air automatically cuts in, maintaining air to the users, at the same time as an audible alarm activates to ensure users exit the work zone to a safe area. It comes with a unique control panel, which can be removed from the trailer and positioned remotely to just outside the work zone to provide means of entry control for the users.
