BA800D 4-Outlet breathing air compressor
The BA800D utilises a sophisticated, fuel efficient, variable speed engine drive system that runs at the optimum speed to match the breathing-air demand of up to 800 l/min at 8 bar it incorporates breathing-air filtration with a pressure swing dryer CO and CO2 suppression system. BA800D's feature FACTAIR’s ‘fail-safe’ system providing automatic back up from high-pressure cylinders, ensuring a safe exit from the workplace in the event of failure of the primary supply.
The breathing-air is delivered through 4 fixed pressure, flow protected outlets, for positive pressure demand masks, with
a switchable option to allow a regulated supply for constant flow devices. In addition a larger diameter single outlet is fitted for breathing air to be delivered to a remote distribution system.
The unit also incorporates volt free contacts to interface with external alarm/shut down devices and a sophisticated minimum loss control system for the HP reserve. The BA800D has been designed to work in wide range of demanding environments with a sand trap louvre ventilation and a specially uprated cooling system allowing the units to operate in both hot and dusty conditions. In addition, as standard, the units are fitted with Chalwyn valve, spark arrestor and a high-level air intake to ensure that air is drawn in from an area clear of exhaust gases.
Air quality exceeds the criteria laid down in BS EN12021 and units are built in our Quality Assured workshops under procedures approved to ISO 9001. Both units have European Community Whole of Vehicle Type Approval 2007/46/EC as well as complying with EC noise regulations of 97LWA.
