    Hi , This is the best invention for HI power PCP guns and big bores

    I have had one for about 6 months and I use it about 5 times a week and it has not even so much has had a hiccup , it is amazing , It is not a cheap unit but it is built like an Edgun , strong and reliable , If you own a big bore or a gun that has a high fill rate say 300 bar , with 1 tank you never get more then 1 or 2 full fills , yes you can fill to 250 bar but face it some slug guns get only 5 to 8 shots and the fill on them and others is 300 bar , so with this unit you can double shot count per bottle or tripple it with 2 bottles , I use just 1 bottle, I will give you examples of filling say guns frommy  leshiy to say 1000 cc bottles  for my .257 caliber

     

    OK so first off this thing has a robust regulator it is like the heart of this system it takes your bottle pressure and drops it to 150 psi to fill the 1st stage piston big volums when you push button it moves the small piston which is like a fx power plenum which holds your tank pressure , and it makes it go from 1000psi  to 300 bar or even 350 bar .

    I can fill my leshiy in like 1 push for only 3 seconds

    to fill my taipan from 150 bar to 250 bar 2 pushes

    r5 30 cal from 150 to 300 bar  about 4 pushes ,

    I got mine here

    This is just a basic version of the Altaros type booster minus the medium-pressure stage and electronic control valve for around three times the price. It will still use a lot of air to drive the diaphragm piston which is a total loss system, so don't expect too many fills from an half-full drive bottle. I do think that there is a market for this type of thing but not at the asking price of $1600. The Altaros will do everything this one does by rearranging the plumbing, there are videos demonstrating how but it does need an electric power supply to switch the valves.

    Eaglebeak it is not even for the same porpuse , the ayretek is to fully fill a gun after your bottle falls below your fill pressure , you are confusing , this booster pump , to a booster compressor which many have , they need power and take a long time to create air , up to 24 hours to fill a bottle , as the altaros and shoe box compressor ,

    not the same I also have an altaros booster , that is like a shoe box , the ayrekk , is a booster pump which creates 300 bar from your tank in seconds , with NO POWER , and the alteros needs a compressor to use it , so it is totally different  thing , the altaros fills a bottle in many hours , the ayrekk booster pump takes your bottle after it drops below a full fill of your gun and it converts it to a full fill , in seconds , totally different use .

    And yes it is not cheap , you can compare it to say a entry pcp  to a hi end pcp , or a cheap compressor to a commercial unit , But I have not saw 1 other unit which does what this does , it is not a compressor to fill your bottle it is a unit to get a full fill when your bottle drops below what your fill pressure , for hi pressure PCP guns and BIG BORES this is a real Game Changer , I did not say it was cheap I said it was quality made and does what nothing else on market I have saw do this , I used to top off my tank at 220 bat and fill to 300  bar , Now I can fill at 1000 psi and I get alot more full fills per tank which I did not have ,

    I'm sorry Lou but this works exactly the same way as an Altaros. The difference with the Altaros is the central diaphragm drive piston drives a medium pressure stage on one end and a high-pressure stage on the other whereas the ayrtekk one has only the high-pressure stage so the central drive piston only compresses in one direction so it looks like only one half of an Altaros unit. If you look at a schematic of both units you will find that they are very similar in design. As I pointed out, the Altaros can be configured to work in the same manner using another bottle to provide the first stage input. 

    It could be configured to work of two bottles just to top off guns, with the right fittings but topping off large bottles is in my opinion, more practical. If you watch the video above you will see that the Ayrtekk can be configured to work off a compressor the same as an Altaros but the valve will need to be operated manually. The Altaros is different than the Shoebox which uses a mechanical drive. You say that you have an Altaros, you should be able to see the similarity in how they work. I still believe that $1600 would be better spent on a stand-alone compressor or perhaps six Yong Hengs but your requirements are obviously different and I respect that.

    Kinda seems like a pain in the backside. I could see the use within the field or if your out camping or something to get more air out of a bottle. Still needing a source though. Neat though.

    Now-now-now!

     

    They both work on the same principle but are vastly different beasts.

    Altaros: Takes ONLY 100psi compressor fed air and uses that to compress to @800psi(?) from first to second stage and then uses 100psi air to boost that to 4500psi.

    Ayrtekk: Takes 100psi regulated air and boosts whatever you feed it to 4500+psi. It boosts your bottle pressure directly in the final stage to your needs and for that it uses your bottle pressure regulated down to 100psi.

    Say you shoot a dump valve rifle that needs 4500psi for max. power. Using a bottle in the field you're up s4!7 creek without a paddle from git go.

    Using the Ayrtekk you use your bottle to feed the booster both regulated air for the piston and unregulated air to the boosting stage and getting 4500+psi at every shot.

     

    So a truck and a Prosche is not the same just because they both have a 500hp engine!

    Can it be used to fill scuba tanks as well with a shop compressor?

    Yes and yes.

    They can both be driven by 100 psi shop air but only the Ayrtekk can utilise full bottle pressure to supply the second/thierd stage and boost in a hurry in the field.

    I spoke to their suppliers today and it is not meant to fill large carbon fire tanks from a shop compressor and they have no idea on how long it would take because you would have to be there physically to keep pushing down the lever to dispense the air.  So if you need air or don't have access to air this probably won't work
