Arctic Traveler Canada has designed Air Filtration Solutions to ensure vehicle operators are breathing clean cabin air while on the job. Innovating at all levels of Filtration, ATC produces air cleaning systems that continuously protect operators.
Arctic Traveler Canada offers two different Cab Pressurizers or Cab Filtration Solutions. Both systems continually supply fresh filtered air into the cab creating a positive pressure inside a properly sealed cab. This over-pressure pushes clean air out leaks in the positive pressure side of the system, rather than allowing contaminated air to enter. The indoor air quality is critical to providing a healthy and productive work environment and whether it’s agriculture, construction, mining or waste management, operators spend a great deal of time in the cab of their equipment.
Cab pressurizers are highly effective at removing particulate as well as vapours and fumes. The filter element can also be customized to target specific contaminates present where your equipment is working. A differential pressure gauge or electronic pressure control system are available to measure the difference in pressure between the inside and outside of the cab.

The Cabaire system which incorporates Enginaire’s proven air precleaner,with a patented in-line filter to make a highly efficient pressurizer that ensures clean filtered air.
Cab Filtration Solutions
Cabaire™ cab pressurization unit (ECP) combines their proven air precleaner with our proven VLR air filter system to give you a very efficient self contained filter air pump. As air is drawn into the air conditioner, the Cabaire removes the large dirt particles with the built in centrifugal precleaner.
The air is then filtered and blown into the air conditioner intake duct with our self contained air pump. All in a very small space. By having a positive pressure on the incoming air chamber, the air conditioner can do it’s job easier with less power required. Even when the air conditioner is not being used, the clean air from the ECP is blown into the cab creating a positive pressure which prevents dirt from entering the cab through leaks in it’s doors and other spaces.
Enginaire’s Cabaire™ uses it’s own high pressure air pump not a fan to deliver a high volume of dual filtered air into your enclosure which then has a positive air pressure on the inside. When the enclosure has a positive pressure, dirt is forced out of the doors, windows, and other unsealed areas instead of being drawn into the enclosure. You stay clean, your electronics and other instruments stay clean, while you “breathe easy”.
So whether you’re looking for a solution for smaller applications like Tow motors, Agriculture or gigantic machinery in Mining operations, Arctic Traveler Canada has a solution for your application. Call or visit us today for more information and see what 60 years of excellence can do for you.
Replacement A/C Hose lines don’t have to be from the Original Manufacturer!
In the past, it was difficult to find a supplier capable of doing AC hose repairs, but with today’s wide selection of high-quality fittings and hose, your replacement could be right here at ATC. The Air Conditioning System provides the desired cabin temperatures to ensure operator comfort. The AC hose is used to effectively transfer both liquid and gas between the components and should be inspected for leaks and either repaired or replaced ASAP, to ensure the system continues to perform as expected.

Today, many hose sets come with metal tube sections, some of which we offer. If no suitable fitting is available, using a hose to replicate the metal tube is the next best thing.
Our experience suggests using Aeroquip hose and E-Z Clip may hold an advantage over crimp fittings for replacing metal tubes. Aeroquip EZ Clip & Hose fitting is a simple option for making or repairing Air Conditioning hose lines on heavy-duty trucks, agricultural, construction and other industrial applications. No hydraulic equipment is needed. Rather, a simple, easy-to-use crimping plier enables quick and easy A/C Hose repairs in the field.
Each Aeroquip fitting comes with 2 Clips which slide over the hose and a Cage which locks into the fitting, goes through the cages and is secured with crimper pliers.
This example shows an OE Hose at the top and using 4 Aeroquip fittings and hose, we can quickly provide a quality solution for your application.
The reduced diameter hose enables tighter turns (but not right angles) without concern for “kinks” which would compromise the hose and AC system.Call ATC at 800-295-4156 for all your mobile heavy-duty HVAC parts, supplies and solutions – Burlington, Mississauga or Montreal.
AC Hose Repair using Aeroquip EZ Clip Fittings and Hose is a quick solution for the quick turn around needs and mobile technicians. Providing even greater flexibility, when the E-Z Clip fitting is lubricated with a slight amount of refrigerant oil before it’s inserted into the hose, the direction/index of the fitting can be changed by rotating the fitting in the hose. Once the refrigerant oil used has dried (1-2 hours) the fitting can no longer be turned or re-indexed.
Take these steps to inspect an A/C compressor to ensure it really needs replacing before you pull it from a heavy-duty vehicle:
1. Is The Compressor Rotation Smooth?
With the vehicle off, turn the compressor shaft with a 14-mm socket. If you feel grinding or hanging as you rotate the shaft, it’s probably due to broken components within the compressor. If the rotation is smooth, move on to Step 2.
2. Is The Coil Getting More Than 11.5 Volts?
Take a reading with the engine running and the clutch engaged. If there’s insufficient voltage, get to work on that. Otherwise, move on to Step 3.
3. Is The Coil Resistance Between 2.8 And 4.4 Ohms?
Any resistance outside this range will prevent the clutch from engaging or will cause used circuits to open. If the answer is yes, continue to Step 4.
4. Is The Compressor Able To Produce 350 Psig Or More?
If not, leave the compressor where it is. The system may have a low refrigerant charge because of a leak that needs repair, or a high-side blockage that limits refrigerant flow to the compressor.
Tech Tips from Red Dot
” We see lots of compressors that are returned fully functional and therefore not warrantable.
Get the diagnosis right. Inspect an A/C compressor before you pull the component from the vehicle.”
