The Air-Up System consists of an aluminium cylinder of pressurized CO2 that is stored in a liquid state and released as a vapor through a specially designed regulator. The Air-Up System can inflate tyres, run air tools, re-seat beads and is the fastest portable way to air up.
Very few 12 volt compressors can match both the flowrate and high pressure of the Air-Up System. The custom built regulator is adjustable from 0 to 200 psi and the high amount of air flow generated by a fully open regulator is much greater than that achieved by most vehicle air compressors. Unlike a 12 volt or 240 volt air compressor the Air-Up System is fully portable. Our coil hose is extremely light weight and is rated at 200 psi working pressure, 1000 psi burst pressure and is half the weight of current 1/2 inch air hoses used in the construction and automotive industries. The quick connect fittings are rated at 300 psi.
Unlike commonly available regulators, the Superflow regulator is designed to provide a high flow rate, which is what enables the Air-Up system to inflate tyres at a high rate of speed and run air tools. Normal CO2 regulators will freeze clog and sometimes destroy internal parts even at moderate flow rates. The Air-up regulator is compact, well built and guaranteed to perform. The adjustable regulator limits the maximum outlet pressure no matter what the pressure is inside the cylinder.
All of the Air-Up components are heavy duty and built to maximize safety. Every component of the Air-Up System is brand new and made to Australian Standards. Air-Up's aluminium cylinders are overbuilt for pressures substantially higher than the Air-Up's standard operating pressure.
Superflow regulators are designed and built to withstand much harsher conditions than any normal regulators are expected to endure - outdoor heat, moisture, dirt and vibration. Add to that the sub-freezing effects of high output of CO2 vapor. There are no environments that request the demands of a high-pressure regulator.
The handle at the top doubles as a guard, protecting the regulator and valve from getting knocked and damaged. It is made of solid 6061-T6 rod and billet and secured to the cylinder with 3/8" stainless-steel bolts. Naturally, whenever handling high-pressure equipment, precautions and common sense must be practised.
The same air system has been operating in the United States for many years. Visit the Powertank web site for loads of information on the most amazing air system on the market.
