Questions and Answers for Max Air 90SE 5000psi Breathing Air Compressor:

  • Graham:

    hi we have a beach villa in mozambique and with three of the family advanced open water divers and one member a master diver. we are now looking to put our own compressor in place for when we travel out to mozambique as fills are very expensive there. with friends, the numbers of divers will vary from 2 to a maximum of 10 at any one time with the frequency of diving being between 5-7 times a year for 1-2 weeks at a time. so, two questions 1. which compressor would you recommend 2. do you deliver to mozambique? thanks graham

    The MaxAir 35 is a small portable compressor and can be ordered to run on gas or electric. It is not a continuous run compressor, but can fill 2 -3 80 cuft tanks before it needs to cool down for an hour or so. If you need more than that the MaxAir 55 would be the next choice.
