Thomas Industries once again comes through for The Air Line with a tough compact, single-head compressor that goes beyond diving just under the hull.

Terrific option for sail boaters, power boaters who don't want to carry gas, and metal detectives who want to keep a low, quiet profile.

What better way to do those really fun projects like scraping barnacles, changing zincs, chopping line off the prop. No tank to bop the gel coat, no yo-yoing up and down til your lungs give out.

  • Thomas Industries compact, single-head compressor
  • Motor: 1/3 HP DC.
  • Rated Load: 26 AMPS.
  • Weight: 23 lbs.
  • Size: 12" by 8" by 6" high on white, rubber feet. (Allow 19" L for hose bend, cables and overpressure, Quiet Valve)
  • Performance: 3.25 CFM @ 0PSI, 2.18 @ 50.  One to depth of 50 feet. *See Foot Note
  • Recommended Battery: Group 31 Marine. (Expect two hours of operation.) Group 27. (Expect one hour, 20 minutes.) One D-Cell. (Expect ridicule.) Running the boat engine will keep the battery charged.

Standard Gear Package Includes:

  • Air Line/Thomas 12 volt Single Piston Compressor
  • 5' US Navy heat hose w/ over pressure valve
  • 60' fully swiveled, individual diver hose
  • 2 Washable, stainless-steel particle filters

  • Weight Belt
  • Adjustable, hookah-specific, 2nd stage regulator w/fully rotational, 360º swivel
  • Owners manual

Mounting Notes: The compressor can be custom mounted in any position.

Footnote: It's important  to understand that the performance of a 12Volt compressor is directly related to its AMP draw. AMP is loosely defined as being the strength of electric current. The higher the AMPS, the stronger the current, therefore the stronger the power. Breathing at any level, even at the surface, requires both pressure and volume.

The problem is that at some point, it is impractical to supply the strength to accomplish the job due to battery sizes. Battery banks on large boats, or keeping the motor running will accommodate the AMP power needed for larger compressors.  Gas or 110Volt/AC powered units start off with considerable "strength" and are, therefore, more able to overcome resistance within their given parameters.
