Can Industries, Inc.
was started in September 1984 by two Pennsylvania Fire Chiefs to
construct and distribute a new product for the fire service, which they
designed and tested.
The new product was a 2.5-gallon fire extinguisher that was converted
and improved by the use of fire suppression additives and
interchangeable nozzles that drastically increased the effectiveness of
a standard water fire extinguisher. This new design permitted the unit
to be used for a multitude of task including chimney fires, Class "A''
liquid fires, as well as an increased capability in the extinguishment
of Class "A'' fire fighting. This unit was provided with a convenient
carrying bag for hands free transportation, as well as the ability to
safely climb stairs or ladders with the unit. For many years the
standard z2.5-gallon pressurized water extinguisher has been known as
the ''can'' of water. Since this new innovation drastically expanded the
capabilities of the standard "can'' it become known as the ''Super Can''
and that is where our corporate name comes from. Super Can Industries,
Inc. first CEO is one of these two chiefs and he remains the President
and CEO to this day. His 19 years as an innovative fire chief has
brought about many improvements and safety features that we always
incorporate into all of our products.
In early 1989, the president of Super Can Industries, Chief Joe Nelson,
was asked to serve as a respiratory protection advisor to the
Philadelphia Fire Department as they were in the process of
reestablishing Heavy Rescue 1, in their department. Due to the special
needs and requirements that heavy rescue operations place on respiratory
protection equipment and systems, a comprehensive study was done by
Chief Nelson on behalf of the Technical Service Division of the PFD. One
of the immediate concerns that surfaced was the lack of commercially
available long duration supply systems that met the demands of heavy
rescue. Chief Nelson embarked on a design criteria study for designing
and building the safest, easiest to use, portable, and operator friendly
continuous air resource transport (C.A.R.T.). The design and prototype
work took a total of 16 months and the members and officers of the heavy
rescue unit assisted in this process. The end result of this task was
the Air Source C.A.R.T. Super Can Industries, Inc. introduced many
''first'' in the design and construction of this type unit. They were
the first to introduce a two-piece frame assembly. The first to
introduce a fail safe, balanced piston type pressure reducer for this
type equipment, the first to have both audible and visual warnings on a
low air pressure condition, the first to introduce a flexible "main" and
"reserve" system for the air supply to the unit to prevent any
accidental out of air condition to exist. This unit became the main stay
of most metropolitan heavy duty rescue squads, based on it's safety
features, it's design features, and it's simplicity of use. Fifteen
years after the first Air Source C.A.R.T. was introduced, over 98% of
them are still in front line service today. Super Can Industries, Inc.
has always designed it's equipment to grow with the need of the fire
departments, therefore it never becomes obsolete.
The SCI Air Source® line of carts are available for
respirator supply, pneumatic tool supply, and combination respirator and
tool supply. The carts feature lightweight aluminum frames, heavy duty
cast aluminum telescoping handles, and either our electronic low
pressure warning system with LED’s or mechanical warning whistles. Some
feature detachable main frames for a lower profile, as well as an
eyebolt for hoisting or lowering.
