Air Venturi EC-3000 Compressor by Hill
Please Note: The EC-3000 is recommended for filling PCP guns only and is not to be used for breathing air.
Hill is well known as the leader in hand pumps that produce dry air for PCP airguns, and now they are expanding into the world of compressors, with the EC-3000! This is the compressor of the future. Not only does it have an adjustable output pressure and automatic shutoff, but it is all digital, meaning you can control your fill pressure down to the last PSI or BAR if you want to. No messing with a dial on a physical gauge, if you want to fill your Air Arms S510XS to exactly 250 BAR, set the output pressure to 250 BAR, and start your fill. The EC-3000 will stop when you get to 250 BAR, and you'll even be able to watch it build pressure on the screen as it fills. It's as simple as that.
You can also adjust the display to show pressure in BAR, PSI or MPa. That way, no matter what you are filling, you can ensure you are getting the right amount of air into your rifle or pistol with every fill. Made in England by the cleanest name in hand pumps, Hill Pumps, the EC-3000 is made to last with minimal servicing needed. There is an on-board filter to keep the air dry and clean and there's even a safeguard in place to keep the unit from overheating.
In addition to the cooling fan, the unit is programmed to shut off at 75C automatically, until it cools adequately, and then it will restart itself and continue the fill. This system keeps you from having to constantly stop and start the unit and also eliminates the need for bulky water tanks. The unit is lubricated with silicone lube, fed from a small container stored on the right side of the compressor. It takes low maintenance to a whole new level! Almost as low as the 75 dB sound signature the compressor makes while running!

This compressors is super high quality and works like a dream. ! The safety features and preventative fail safe are a nice added bonus with this unit. The check oil fail safety gives great confidence that details matter with this equipment . I have been super happy with all this compressors has to offer !Things I would have changed:
I would like to see a protective transport and storage case for it when it is used in the field and transported in the truck or trunk ... FYI this unit fits like a glove in the large Dewalt pack out case on wheels I transport it in the case and place it on the lid when in use. Works great to protect it from any damage when locked and loaded inside .with the handle and wheels on the Dewalt packout case make it super easy to move around.
I like everything about this compressor. It's simple that you have a sight glass for seeing oil levels, so no guessing on if and when to oil it. My 480 cc bottle fills from 150 bar to 250 bar is just under 2 min. It just a sweet compressor.Things I would have changed:
For the price would like to see a longer warranty.What others should know:
I had a Nomad 1 compressor that had broken after 2.5 years that actually didn't have a lot of hours on it, I wouldn't go back to a Nomad after owning the Hill.
Very well built, easy to use, and pretty quiet. This is an impressive piece of British engineering and the single wheel control with display screen is intuitive. Basically just add the lubricants and use it. The crankcase oil does take a few minutes to distribute itself, but just keep adding a bit until it stabilizes at the correct level. Tops off my Prod in a minute, Wildcat .25 in 2 min, and 90 ci bottle in about 15 min, with brief, automatic pauses to cool. Now instead of carefully rationing a bottle charge, I can shoot all I want! Love it.Things I would have changed:
NothingWhat others should know:
This is a fairly heavy unit, but compact, and the tubular frame both protects pump and provides great handles. I spent over two years watching as multiple compressors hit the market and were reviewed. I wanted something to provide trouble-free service for a long time at my house and decided to spend a little more to get real quality. After a month I am very optimistic about this one.
Got a question or answer?
Can this be used to fill a small 100 cu. Inch ( wingman) tank to 300 bar without overstressing the compressor?
Is there another crank case oil that can be used besides the Hill Crank oil? I have some Royal Purple compressor oil, can that be used?
what is the thread size for the intake air filter?
