The model 93 Eco Air Meter was introduced in 1947. These air meters operated using air pressure, not electricity. They inflated a tire by injecting a pulse of air when the chuck was attached to the tire valve. It would then stop and read the tire pressure to see if more air needed to be injected. It would repeat this process until the tire pressure matched the amount of pressure set on the control gauge. This was referred to as “Balanced Inflation”. Each time air was injected, the bell would ring. The hose for this air meter is housed in the base and had automatic recoil that would rewind the hose back onto a reel. This is an Eco that we restored using a Texaco theme.
