  • This the original concept trailer that had a bottle loading hatch on the left rear workflow through a wash station then recharging with 6000 psi pure dry air,drying and completed delivery through the right hand access. This led to the project being know as the “bottle wash” . This two wheeler flipped on trials with the Army and was replaced with a four wheel variant which after more mods made it into service.

  • The army trailer shown is the Charging Equipment Pure Air, Trailer Field. The one in the background is the same equipment with the roof folded and stowed for towing.
