Fire Protection Compressor Product Key
Freezer Room Dry Air Compressor
An air compressor that is specifically designed for dry pipe and pre-action sprinkler systems in frigid areas. The regenerative drying process (four molecular sieve towers) dries system air to a less than -40°F dewpoint, which will prevent the dangerous formation of ice plugs in cold storage systems, as well as stop the corrosion process.
Corrosion Prevention Dry Air Compressor
An air compressor that is specifically designed for dry pipe and pre-action sprinkler systems. The regenerative drying process (two molecular sieve towers) dries system air to a less than -40°F dewpoint, which will stop the corrosion process.

System Capacity (Gallons)
Fills system to 40 psi in less than 30 minutes.
A tankless unit that contains a motor, pump, and Digital AMD Gen-3 or 30-40 psi pressure switch.
Baseplate unit fitted with pneumatic tires, a long handle, rubber feet, and a storage bracket for the handle.
Heavy & Standard Duty Series (HD & SD)
When reliability is essential, C-Aire recommends the Heavy Duty Series. Our Heavy Duty compressors are built for longevity and provide the lowest total cost of ownership over the life of the building. In addition to new projects where the compressor will last for many years, the Heavy Duty Series is the perfect solution for replacing failed compressors in older systems. Our Standard Duty Series are dependable units, built at an economical price. New construction or tight systems with minimal air leaks are a good match for this series. The HD and SD Series include a 1-year unit warranty and a 3-year pump warranty.
Light Duty Series (LD)
Whisper quiet, compact units that are specifically designed for settings where noise is the main concern. These units are oil-free, easy to install, and low maintenance. Includes 1-year unit warranty.
Prewired Power Cord
Designed for testing purposes only. Not to be used as a permanent source of power.
Prewired Magnetic Starter
The single-phase S1300 and S1700, and all three-phase compressors require a factory-installed magnetic starter to provide overload protection.
30-40 psi Adjustable Pressure Switch
A pressure switch that operates at a lower pressure setting. Factory set at 30-40 psi.
Digital AMD Gen-3 (With Leak Detection)
The Digital AMD Gen-3 is UL listed and allows the user to set the system pressure in seconds and measure system air leaks by monitoring the total number of starts in the past 24 hours and 7 days.
