Scott Health & Safety Introduces a Simpler Way to Fill Air Cylinders

Smart Fill auto cascade system frees operators for other tasks

Monroe, NC – Scott Health & Safety, a global leader in innovative personal protective equipment and safety devices, has launched an easier, more efficient cylinder charging system for firefighters and others who require the use of breathing air systems.

Scott’s Smart Fill™ auto cascade system was designed to save time and maximize air available for filling SCBA cylinders. By eliminating the need for user training and hands-on operations, it allows the operator more time to focus on other tasks. Plus, with no chance of operator error, the system gets the maximum amount of air out of a storage system by automatically pulling from the storage cylinder with the lowest pressure until the SCBA cylinder has reached the target fill pressure.

“The Smart Fill uses a simple approach to address real-life operational challenges associated with filling SCBA cylinders,” said Jeff Emery, Scott’s Fire Services Marketing Manager. “This makes the Smart Fill an excellent complement to our existing portfolio of compressors and breathing air accessories.”

The Smart Fill requires no electric power and has a small footprint for easy installation into stationary or mobile systems. That, plus a modular design that allows the system to be added to any new or existing breathing air system, makes Smart Fill a solid choice for anyone looking to add or upgrade to an auto cascade system.

When combined with Scott’s patented RevolveAir® fill station, the cylinder filling time is even faster, allowing two cylinders to be charged at once while two others are being changed out of the system.
