Back up air (HP)

Within the system, there is a high pressure, 6.8 liter, composite bottle that is pressurized with 300bar of breathing air and is always available to the user as long as the connection hoses from the unit to the user are not cut. Note: The E Compressor will not refill the HP bottle.

*The lasting duration of the HP back/up air is dependant upon the type of mask used, level of stress and person.


In all critical situations, panic and poor judgment can result in mishandling of a system. The E Compressor is designed to be a failsafe supplier of breathing air for its users under all circumstances. No action is needed to switch or turn on an emergency valve for backup breathing air in an emergency situation, for example if there was gas in the air inlet, motor or compressor failure, or loss of power.
