    I have recently purchased a little compressor for filling scuba tanks but it has no ID plate or anything from what I could see I am guessing it is a Kidde, could someone assist in confirming this?
    Also after as much information regarding servicing, changing filter medium etc.

    More pictures would help but it looks like a little Kidde.

    looks like a Kidde. Most people consider them disposable, but if you search on here you'll find posts about where to get parts.

    The compressors were never sold to my knowledge for breathing gas, so the filters are going to be aftermarket. You're on your own as far as figuring out which filter it is and which cartridge is compatible with it. The cartridge in there may have a model number on it

    I think it is granular activated carbon as that is what I was given with the compressor
