Circul-Air Corp D6XX and E6XX cabinets can be purchased as a stainless steel option or as a galvanized only option. These cabinets are made to order and can be purchased directly from the manufacturer or your Circul-Air dealer partner.

Stainless cabinets are constructed from 304 SS and are outfitted with standard accessories.

Galvanized cabinets are an unpainted version of the standard production cabinet, yet are corrosion resistant and ideal for high use industrial settings.

For decades the Circul-Air Corp Hose Washer has been the go-to for the proper soaking and scrubbing of fire hose. And when it comes to 5″ hose, we have been the industry workhorse.

While the Series 100A RTJ3 and RTJ5 units are still living long healthy lives in the field, we have made the decision to discontinue the Series 100 as of April 2020 as the result of supply chain issues, instead bringing forward a new model in October 2020.

Beginning in September we will be taking reservations for the Series 200A. This hose washer will continue to provide industry leading 60GA of soaking capacity, along with a powerful 30FPM of 5″ hose processing, while enjoying a more robust construction and off the shelf replacement components. Reservations will be on a first come basis, with deliveries starting in November.

The Dual Purpose (6XL) and PPE Express (6) models require ducting away from the unit for optimum operation.

Standard:

  • 12 3/8 collar to 12″ duct run. Typically with the total run not exceeding 15′, containing a manual or gate damper or louvre system

Optional:

  • 12-3/8″ collar to 12-10″ reduction to 10″ duct run. Typically with the total run not exceeding 15′, containing a manual or gate damper or louvre system 

For enclosed rooms, door grates or make-up air equal to 900-1000 cfm should exist to allow for fresh air take-up.

Contact Circul-Air for additional information.

In the age of Amazon it is expected that most products can be delivered overnight. At Circul-Air Corp we manufacture to order, holding minimum stock levels to keep our costs low, and pass the savings onto our customers and distributors. With that in mind the following delivery can be expected in most situations.

  • Hose and PPE Dryers – 3 to 5 weeks
  • Hose Washers – Currently 9 weeks due to demand
  • Extractors – 3 to 5 weeks
  • Accessories (Except Tilt Top) – 3 weeks

Should you have a larger order or are working through time sensitive deliveries such as Construction, Grant, Emergency or Disaster Response, contact Circul-Air for additional information.

Circul-Air Corp works with a number of carriers in the US and overseas to ensure that your new product reaches its final location in the best condition. Here are a few considerations to be made at the time of ordering and planning:

  •  Hose & PPE Dryers are heavy! A crated PPE Express is 1150 lbs while a Dual Purpose Dryer is 1250 lbs. If a forklift is not available, be sure to request a liftgate.
  • In the US and Canada, typically liftgate service is to the curb / door of station. If additional services are required, be sure to request at the time of order so that these can be factored into your delivery cost.
  •  Unattended vs. Attended sites are different costs for shipping. Most carriers will charge a “final mile” premium for unattended sites, so it is best to ensure that a reliable contact is provided at the time of order. Storage fees for unplanned handling by the carrier can be prevented with adequate planning.

While we strive to maintain a supply of components for historical machines, the RTJ-3 model is over 30 years old in most cases. While a testament to their excellent design, our access to these components is decreasing with time.

What can be ordered:

  • Chains & Sprockets, typically within 4 weeks.
  • Bearing Flanges, small bearings, typically within 5 weeks.
  •  White brushes – Availability varies, but typically a 8 week lead time.
  •  Drive Shafts, typically within 4 weeks.
  •  Motors – Unfortunately we will typically direct you to a local motor rebuild facility as we do not carry these.
  •  Rubber Drive Rollers – As of 2020 we no longer have access to these components.
