Hi guys, it has been a while since I have posted. This is my compressor, it is not a cheap compressor and it is in an exceptionally good condition. I am going to offer airfills to you guys at a special rate.
Normally I ask R60, you guys will pay only R40 per air fill.
My compressor is very well maintained, the compressor has a fill timer so I know exactly when to change my filter. I have been trading in cylinders for five years now and I can confirm that a bad compressor can destroy a good cylinder very easily.
There are several stages of filtration that the air goes through with my compressor. First stage is a normal air filter to remove dust from the air. The second stage is a low pressure moisture trap, this moisture trap removes around 90% of the moisture in the air. From the Low Pressure moisture filter the air goes to a float piston that floats on 50 bars of oil pressure, this piston boosts the pressure from 50 bar to 300 bar. From the float piston the air goes to a larger 330 bar moisture trap with two different moisture compartments, this moisture trap removes most of the oil from the float piston and the remaining moisture that is still trapped in the air. At this point the air goes through filt > Molecular sieve > filt > Activated carbon > filt > Molecular sieve >Activated carbon > filt. At this stage, all impurities are removed and the air is suitable for scuba diving.
You can be rest assured that the air quality is extremely good. I will soon install three massive 300 bar air banks, when installed air fills will only take a few seconds. I will never overfill a cylinder for any customer.

Used Scuba Diving Cylinders:
I also trade in used scuba diving cylinders, I guarantee my cylinders for a full year (Until the next inspection date). For the guarantee to be valid, you have to make use of a reliable filling facility and you have make use of a specified hydro facility on your cylinder certificate. Misuse does not count.
I only sell cylinders that are in date and filled. If you want to know more, please email or call me directly. Rainerfilm@gmail.com 0842657160, I am available seven days a week until 11 pm. I can also arrange courier to anywhere in SA.
NEW HYDRO FACILITY OPENING SOON:
We will soon open a new hydro testing facility. There will be a pickup point in Pretoria as well as in Johannesburg. We are simply re-opening an old SANAS approved Hydro Facility that operated in the 80's. The technical signatory for the hydro facility has over 15 years experience in this field. We hope to be up and running in a few months from now. We have to go through a lengthy inspection process before the facility will be approved.
I can still help with hydro tests and visual inspections, I make use of a temporary facility in Johannesburg. Price depends on the condition of the cylinder, if your cylinder fails it will be removed from service via drill bench... If we find time bombs we destroy them, end of story.
Standard visual inspection, air fill and certificate: R 160
Standard hydro test, air fill and certificate included: R 220
Additional charges may apply.

I collected 2 cylinders there today:
7l 300 Bar - Visual inspection and fill = R 110-00
15l 232 Bar - Visual inspection, removal of internal surface rust and fill = R200-00
I do get a bit of a discount on the fills, been going there since 1991 ........
Just spoke to Dräger on the phone.
They do refills for R75
More importantly, they also do hydrotesting of composite cylinders, provided the cylinders are European or South African standard, not American standard.
I can confirm that Drager has moved to
