How to Order and the Price


The latest version of our price beating, electric powered compressor, the SC-3a, includes an improved piston with significantly better fill performance.

Quieter than ever, this latest version of the SC-3a also features a NEW electronic hour meter.  

It weighs in at under 32kg, but with a soft grip handle is most definitely portable. It works with the minimum of maintenance. 

It comes in sturdy outer packaging with improved styrofoam boxes within.

Just some of the extras supplied include: maintenance kit, Purple Ice lubricant & Antifreeze, a high pressure hose with quick connect, a manual, a cover and a 1 year warranty. All SC-3As are tested by us before onward shipping.

Say goodbye to big dive bottles. The  Omega with its quick connect is ideal to fill your rifle and your portable tanks.

Please note: not certified for scuba use.

To start for the first time, begin with adding the Purple Ice, then the anti- freeze, and top up with regular water

(not distilled water).


DO NOT operate the Omega compressor without having added water. The water is essential to cooling the compressor.


Set the moisture vent controls on the front panel.

One control is for the frequency of the vent, the other for the length of vent. In the UK we recommend setting it to vent for 5 seconds every 5-10 minutes. Now connect hose with the quick connect 1/8th BSP and you're ready.  

If you are filling just rifles, and given the average rifle fill is only 2-3 minutes, then you will naturally vent the system when you de-pressurise the hose to disconnect it from the rifle. 

The Omega Super Charger comes with a basic maintenance kit. It comprises various parts: a spare burst disc, tools, a special piston spanner, a 

re-written manual and a dust cover. Also included are two plastic bottles, 1 of anti-freeze and 1 of Purple Ice which must be put into the water reservoir before it is topped up with pure water.

If there's a compressor problem which your local distributer or Gilbert Distribution can't fix, then the Super Charger's designer is just a quick email away from your service centre.
