Out with the old, in with the new. SSAC install new compressor

SSAC has been filling cylinders with a fantastic compressor, buit some time in the 1950's, that has given us streling service.  But it is increasingly difficult to find spares, we have been struggling to meet water content limits applied in the latest gas quality standards, and the compressor has lots and lots of knobs that have to be twiddled in the right order which puts some of our members off.  So the decision was taken in the New Year to replace it with a newer (second hand) model.  And today was the day it was installed.  Many thanks to Chris, Will and Rob Fraser for doing the work.  Members training will take place shortly...

Out with the old... It was quite heavy!
