AVAILABLE from Cormack Anest Iwata , the Martech air breathing system helps employers comply with the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and their responsibility for the working environment, including air quality.
This is an especially important consideration for supplied breathing air, for example in spray booth applications.
As the oil used to lubricate the compressor's pistons breaks down and is vapourised, oil aerosols are generated which contaminate the supplied breathable air.
Noxious gases such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide may also be present in unsafe levels. Other contaminants can also be present, including dirt, rust and scale.
What makes the Martech system different is the continuous multi-function monitor. This is situated after the four-stage filter, which incorporates an automated moisture discharge, to ensure that air supply is dry to protect both the operator and the equipment.
This monitor continuously checks on CO, CO2 and hydrocarbon levels. A 90dBA alarm sounds along with a visual warning light should air quality not come up to standard. Low air pressure will also activate the alarm.
The system is supplied ready-to-use or as individual components-which allows easy upgrade for existing equipment. In a ready to use format, the system is panel mounted and is easy to install. The system complies with NIOSH and AS standards.
The only on-going maintenance is the replacement of the filters; with stage one replaced annually, stage two six monthly and stages three and four, quarterly. Calibration is recommended every six months, using a simple process.
