Air Fill Stations

Air fill stations, for either stationary or mobile SCBA and SCUBA air refills, provide the cylinder refill operator with a greater measure of safety over simply laying a cylinder on the ground during the refilling process. The degree of safety varies between types of fill stations.

Containment fill stations are sometimes referred to as a Class 2 models. Class 2, Class 3 and Class 4 are informal classifications. Containment and Class 2 descriptions are synonomous. Class 3 refers to a deflecting style of tall fill station that provides a steel blast shield between the operator and the cylinders being refilled. It does not contain the air blast of a ruptured cylinder, nor the cylinder fragments. A Class 4 fill station is a considered small fragmentation deflecting unit that does not contain the air blast of a ruptured cylinder, nor the cylinder fragments. Class 4 units offer the operator little in the way of protection and the least amount of protection of the three types of fill stations. They are, however, better than laying the cylinder down during the refilling process.

PopCan

PopCan™ Stations are one step up from having no operator protection when refilling SCBA cylinders. Our PopCan carries an informal Class 4 rating. The primary function of the tube serves to hold round bottom cylinders in the upright position for added ease of air refilling. Sometimes referred to as Frag Deflectors, Frag Chambers or Fragmentation Chambers, these stations "may" provide a small measure of protection for the air refill operator, when refilling high pressure breathing air cylinders. Our Boombox containment fill stations provide much better operation protection. Call us now with your questions on fill stations needs.

PopCan Station - Tube Only
Part # AC70010


• Class 4 fill station
• Weight - 37 pounds
• Height - 18.0"
• Outside Diameter - 9.5"
• Internal Diameter - 8.0"
• Wall Gauge - .75"

CAUTION: The primary use of these PopCan products are to hold cylinders in the upright position. By their design, they may provide some measure of added operator protection over having nothing. These products may help direct some of the blast of a ruptured cylinder upwards, as opposed to outward. This product will neither stop cylinder fragments nor the air blast of a ruptured cylinder. Do not install directly below or above an occupied area. For added operator safety, the operator should never lean over nor reach over the container during the filling process. Units should only be installed vertically. Cylinder refilling carries inherent dangers. Proper refill training is required.

 Mobile Containment Fill Stations - Class 2

BoomBox mobile containment fill stations provide enhanced safety for operator when refilling SCBA cylinders and SCUBA cylinders at the scene. This is a Class 2 fill station. BoomBoxes TM, as we've named them, provide operator protection from the cylinder fragments of a ruptured SCBA cylinder, SCUBA cylinder or other high pressure breathing apparatus cylinder. The accompanying air blast is not contained. BoomBoxes TM are used on rescue trucks, air trucks and in stationary refill applications. for the air refill station operator when refilling high pressure breathing air cylinders. Call us now for answers to your containment fill station questions.

4500-1
BoomBox Single Position Fill Station
Truck Mount

AC70034T

• Single containment fill station
• Door locking bar, (manual)
• One fill hose, bleed valve, nut/nipple, no On/Off valve
• Stainless air bleed valve
• 2216/4500 psi handtight nut & nipple

For Stationary Applacations Order:
AC70034S

Designed to contain the fragments of accidental cylinder rupture or hose failure, while allowing the air blast to be vented quickly and in a direction away from the operator.

A safety interlock prevents SCBA or SCUBA filling unless the front access door is completely closed and locked in place.

The carriage design "tilts" toward the operator whenever the door is opened. This facilitates loading and unloading cylinders and minimizes operator fatigue.

An air control panel can be mounted to these fill stations.

BoomBox Dual Position Fill Station
Truck Mount

AC70035T

This double unit has the same features as the single, with the addition of top mounted On/Off valves for each cylinder fill hose.

It too is designed for either mobile or stationary applications. Meets standards for mobile applications.

For Stationary Applications Order:
AC70035S

For Mobile Single Position Crew Cab Unit Order:
AC70036T

An air control panel can be mounted to these fill stations.

     Containment Fill Stations - Class 2 - Stationary

Boombox Fill Station and
Cascade Air Control Panel

Boombox containment fill stations, equipped with air cascading gauges and on/off panel valves, provide easy and precise control of the SCBA refilling operation. They also give you a greater number of SCBA cylinder refills than a bulk fill air control panel. Tilt out cylinder tray makes loading and unloading of cylinders easy. Plastic slides on cylinder trays protect cylinders from scuffing. Fill hoses are designed for easy connection inside the fill station.

Containment Fill Station - With Cascade Control Panel
26"w X 22"d X 62"h

• Fills one or two cylinders at the same time
• Panel supply gauges and control valves
• Compressor pressure gauge
• Large accurate 4.0" SCBA refilling gauge

ac70038d

An air control panel provides the operator increased control over the filling process. Can be used with compressor, cascade system, and booster pump.

Specify "Zip Nuts" for your fill hoses, for faster cylinder connecting and disconnecting.

class2_2

Bulk filling stations connect all the supply cylinders together, like one large supply cylinder, and provide a single supply pressure gauge for the operator. As with all containment fill stations, there is increased operator protection from a ruptured SCBA cylinder. These units featuring an air operated door safety interlock and tilting cylinder container make loading and unloading easy. Teflon slides on cylinder trays protect cylinders from scuffing. Fill hoses are designed for easy connection and are inside the fill station.
