A breath of fresh air for your business

Over time, air supply from compressors can develop contaminants such as oil, water, and dust particles. This can affect the efficiency, reliability and life span of equipment. More importantly however, if a compressor is providing breathing air for operators, for example via air-fed masks, it is absolutely essential that the supply remains clean. Breathing in contaminated air presents a clear risk to the health of the user.

“Our compressor broke down at the most crucial time - we had orders to fill and we were at a stop. Rung BCAS and spoke to Helen who quickly established what we required - sourced our replacement and organized payment and collection of item. We know who to use next time and highly recommend BCAS”
