    Secondary filtration for a portable compressor

    Fair point, as is typical with me I donít always engage my brain before I engage my mouth.

    That said, a buddy of mine Rob who is also on this forum (& has bought H stuff from you in the past) has had a twinset pass a test (unsure if visual/hydro) but fail (technically the centre refused to carry it out/pass it) an o2 clean.

    I also agree with the filter piece, especially on a new(ish) compressor but like you I canít find anyone who will verify this.

    No, again not possible. No such standard exists as 02 clean, it's a con by dive shops for money your being decieved. You need "Cleaned for Oxygen Service"

    All filters by there very nature fail.

    Better to be able to visually see that point of failure as it occurs in real time while filling the cylinder.
    Than be purely dependent on "feeling" for it.

    Tim Don't forget as your self filter assembly is a pressure vessel it will need testing in accordance with the Pressure systems regs.

    Really for a private individual, You could fill it with grass and toke it till the cows come home and still be clear of Pressure Systems Regs.
