will compressor for breathing air suck in diesel fumes?

compressor for breathing air and if in situation with diesel fumes present, will it draw diesel fumes through the system?

I am not a specialist on breathing air compressors.

Yet, since they typically operate in a similar fashion to any other compressor then I would say, absolutely, yes.

If your compressor intake is pulling in diesel fumes then those fumes will migrate to the person at the other end of the hose that is breathing the air.
