    Masterline booster

    Has anyone used a masterline booster and could provide any information about the company, quality, prices. Their web page is rather sparse.
    Cheers,

    Dave....

    Hello Dave,

    I have a model 7000 A-2 since 2 years, working perfectly.

    Company: Don't know details, but service and delivery was good, and contact with Arnold Henry was ok.

    Quality: Well built, and also very simple in construction. I changed the stainless plumbing, so I have inlet/outlet on the front side. I can supply pics if you want.

    Operation: It pumps all diving gases. Low noise level, no problems when you run it in the garage, it is much more quiet than a diving compressor. I can confirm the filling times that are stated on the webpage. It is really fast, and also suited for filling bigger tanks for OC-diving.

    Price: Not cheap, around 6000 US$ with some hoses and spares. But competitive to a new Haskel, and no need for a big low pressure compressor. Speares are relatively cheap.

    Cheers from Switzerland,
    Michael

    I haven't used one myself, but Royse at IDC in Vancouver has one that he uses a lot.

    They have been used by DiveTech in Cayman for years too.

    I've been down to his store and bought all my fill whip stuff from him. He's seems like a decent guy. He spent years working on submarine systems and now does boosters. His main client base is mining rebreathers, but he's a diver (ex-diver?) and has all the scuba adaptors.

    The booster I'm familiar with is a fairly hefty electric booster that's about $5,000.

    Actually it was one of Royse's instructors that tipped us off to it but he quoted a lower price than you and mkirch posted so I wonder if my source has his wires crossed.
