Komptec Compressors

Komptec has been making and selling compressors in Germany for some time. But up till now we've not done much selling outside of Germany and Austria. Our primary markets are air gunners and diving.

Check us out if you're in the market for a portable compressor in the 70 to 90 liter per minute range. (2.5 to 3.2 CSM).

Our KT-70E has one unique feature, it has a 2HP motor that works on normal household 115V/20A circuits. Our units have two configurations, Config 1 has the fill valve on the hose, with a MPV on the unit. Config 2 builds upon Config 1 and adds the Auto Shut off and Hour Counter. We also have a KT-70A / KT-90A that integrates the fill valve onto compressor frame.

We also target low operating costs, with 500 hour oil change intervals and good filter service life.

Our rollout in North America is underway. We were at the DEMA dive show last fall, and folks liked our compact form factor and packaging. You'll see us show up in more channels shortly, and we support customers thru http://komptec.com/us/ directly as well. Give us a call, we'd love to talk.

Regards, Bill Woodruff

What is the output pressure? Are parts readily available in the US? Is this a unit that could be used in the commercial market or is it just for home/team use?

I'm sorry for the flurry of questions. I used to own a field and had a compressor that I later found out was made in Turkey with very few parts readily available when it failed.

Questions are good..

Safety valve is set to 4500 psi. Since the safety valve is key, the option also exists to order for 3000 psi. Then the appropriate DIN connector is shipped as spec'ed.

We've got one service depot now with parts, will be adding more depots as we roll out. I'll have a set of repair / rebuild videos done later this spring.

The KT70/KT90 is a portable unit not rated for continuous use, so could not be used to fill cascade systems. But then again, all units I've seen at the 100 lpm and lower range have the same attribute. We are in development of a higher capacity unit for field use.

We are also targeting commercial duty with the KT90. These customers receive Automatic Condensate Drain and Electronic control units, and typically will be filling 2L size cylinders. These customers are mostly in Europe now, and we'll document and support these units as the year rolls out.

I'd love any more questions.

On the 6.8L Great White, from empty takes 29 min 34 Sec to 4500psi.

A 4.7 SCBA bottle takes 20 min 40 sec.

68/45 fill time

I don't have a 68/45 in my shop, but fill times typically match the 70 lpm rate.

68 cubic inches is about 1.11 liters.

Filling a 2L cylinder takes 8 min 25 sec. So filling a 68 cu in bottle to 4500 psi from empty should take about 4 min 40 sec.
