K902 Breathing Air Kit for Compressed Air Testing

The AirCheck Kit™ K902 is designed for use with breathing air specifications requiring a dry dew point, such as NFPA 1989, OSHA 1910.134 (Cylinder or SCBA), CGA Grade D (0), and CGA Grade L. Other specifications are available at an additional cost. This kit is typically used by fire service, industrial fire brigades, some dive facilities who use high pressure breathing air to fill SCBAs or any compressor with a desiccant dryer. Test from the compressor or cascade. Watch our online sampling video for Breathing Air Testing.
