Ideal for travel. Have you ever gone on a collecting holiday and just wished that you had an air pen to hand? Or been out working somewhere remotely without access to electricity? Then the Sparmax Arism Viz may be the solution for you.
This is the only truly portable air pen and compressor combination that can fit into your hand luggage - lightweight, silent and compact, with battery packs optional.
This air compressor will only run the ZOIC PalaeoTech T-Rex air pen, as it is not designed nor capable of running tools that require higher pressures or higher air consumption (The T-Rex uses only 5-6lpm - the lowest of it's kind in the world).
Whether you're going on holiday and want to prep what you find from an unfamiliar site to see if it's worth taking home, need something you can operate from a battery whilst camping, or are heading off somewhere remote, this is a first in the world of fossil prep. If you're going to be prepping in your hotel room or AirBnB, please be kind to the cleaners and contain the rock chips and dust!
Please note that this air compressor will not run the T-Rex to its full power, operating at approximately 1.75 Bars or 25 PSI - however, it is the only truly portable air compressor to run a fossil preparation tool that can be popped in your hand luggage and battery operated.
This kit includes:
Battery operation optional
Duty cycle: 40 minutes continuous use. After 40 minutes of continuous operation, use the On/Off switch to turn off the unit or place the airbrush into the holder to pause the compressor. Allow the unit to cool for at least 10 to 15 minutes before turning the compressor back on.
Duty cycle with the battery: approximately 30 minutes continuous use.
*Disclaimer: Chris should be wearing both mask and goggles in this video! Please don't follow his example and use appropriate PPE when preparing fossils.
Lead time approximately 7 working days.
___If you are in need of a small, silent compressor that is mains powered only but will run the full range of ZOIC PalaeoTech air pens with an operating pressure of up to 8 bars, have a look at the 6l FINI - this might be better suited and more powerful for UK based holidays in a caravan, AirBnB or anything else where space isn't at such a premium as international travel, but small and silent is just the ticket!
