I am selling off my home fill station. $5,500 firm for this entire set up.
I am no longer cave diving, so the station is collecting dust more than it is being used.

See my album of photos of this compressor station:

There is so much stuff, and it would be so difficult to ship, that I am looking only for local buyers who can haul it away. The fill station is located 3 hours south of Pittsburgh, PA, and 60 minutes south of Morgantown, WV.

I have done continuous blends to EAN38.
I have banked 1,300 cubic feet of EAN32 at 4,500 p.s.i.
I used the transfill whip for partial pressure fills of EAN50 to EAN100.

I am willing to sell all three HC-4500 bank cylinders separately.

Currently the entire system has been taken down and is in clean storage. If no one buys this from me within the next 3 months, then it is all getting re-assembled in my new workshop and I'm keeping everything.

Intimidated by owning and operating a fill station? Check out this great article:

My setup produced extremely clean oxygen-clean gas at the fill whips.

Oils: Less than 0.01 mg per cubic meter (up to 0.1 allowed)
Solid particles: 0
Fibers: 0
Dew point: 95 degrees F below zero (very dry)
Odor: none

If both parties are cool with it, mind letting us know what the dollar amount sale was after the transaction is complete?
