Affordable and engineered to suit any off road adventure, the compressor is perfect for the inflation of tyres and other inflatable recreational gear. The compressor comes mounted in a heavy duty case for easy carrying and storage, and is equipped with a six metre, high quality abrasion and heat resistant air hose with corrosion resistant one handed (push-lock) quick connect couplings. The design incorporates a hard-anodised cylinder bore and Teflon impregnated carbon fibre piston seal for reduced friction and maximum trouble free life.
The components, constructed entirely of lightweight, high strength engineering grade materials, are fully sealed against moisture and dust, and the design incorporates a washable sintered bronze air filter element to further prevent dust and other contaminants from permeating the unit. Rigorous design and testing over two and a half years has also resulted in a number of unique design features, including integral stop-valves which, together with the pressure switch and relay equipped electrical system, prevent operation of the compressor until it is connected to a tyre or other inflatable item.
This has the tri-fold benefit of saving power and energy while maintaining a lower operating temperature because the compressor is not running continually. The portable compressor also features reduced electro-magnetic sound emissions to protect sensitive radio and navigation equipment when the compressor is in use. The design incorporates a raft of safety features, including an over-pressure safety valve which allows excess air to escape should the pressure rise above a safe level. This feature also offers back-up protection for either a pressure switch failure or accidental connection to an external high pressure source.
An illuminated isolating switch allows the automotive grade alligator clips to be attached to the battery terminal before turning the compressor on, protecting the user from hazardous sparking, and the heavy duty Maxi-Fuse ensures professional in-line circuit protection. The motor is also equipped with an automatic thermal cut-out switch to protect against damage caused by extreme temperatures.
