An air booster is a device that “boosts” air pressure from a low-pressure inlet air source to a high-pressure outlet destination. Example: 3,000 psi to 4,500 psi. Boosters are powered either by electric pumps or low-pressure air. An Air Amplifier is a lower pressure version of an air booster.

Boosters (or amplifiers) can be used in to increase the capability of existing low-pressure compressors. An example is a need to increase the output level on a 150 psi compressor to a 2,000 psi level for a particular application. Larger Boosters can get the same results when increasing PSI on larger compressors is needed.  A booster (or amplifier) is a cost effective way to reach the desired PSI level without purchasing a new compressor.

Boosters (or amplifiers) can also substantially increase the PSI output of storage cylinders. For example:  Cascade systems cannot completely fill SCBA cylinders when the cascade system falls below the desired psi output. An air booster ensures complete fills to the desired level, well after the storage cylinders fall below normal cascading levels. Boosters can reach desired PSI output levels with as little as 500 psi inlet pressure!

GAS BOOSTERS (Air or Gas Driven)

The drive piston(s) is directly connected to the booster piston(s), separated by a vented, triple seal system. The reciprocating action is the same as the liquid pumps. However, with most models final pressure is a function of drive pressure (air driven models only), gas inlet pressure and staging so commonly an external pressure control is recommend.

Typical Applications:
• Bottled gas transfer.
• High pressure gas testing.
• Rebreather Fillings or topping off.
• Gas injection – plastic forming or chemical process.

Benefits:
• Non lube dry gas pistons ensure hydrocarbon free gas output.
• Safe with flammable gases or oxygen.

Type of Gas:
Nitrogen (N2), Breathing Air (N2O2), Helium (He), Nitrous Oxide (N2O), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Neon (Ne), Argon (Ar), Sulphur Hexafluoride (SF6), Oxygen (O2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydrogen (H2), Methane (CH4), Ethylene (C2H4), Natural Gas (CH4)

ELECTRIC DRIVEN GAS BOOSTER

The drive piston(s) is directly connected to the booster piston(s), separated by a vented, triple seal system. The reciprocating action is the same as the liquid pumps. However, with most models final pressure is a function of drive pressure (air driven models only), gas inlet pressure and staging so commonly an external pressure control is recommend.

Typical Applications:
• Bottled gas transfer.
• High pressure gas testing.
• Rebreather Fillings or topping off.
• Gas injection – plastic forming or chemical process.

• Safe with flammable gases or oxygen.

LIQUID PUMPS (AIR OR GAS DRIVEN)

The drive piston(s) is directly connected to the pump plunger or piston, separated by a high pressure seal. When shop air (or gas) is applied, the assembly reciprocates automatically, producing a positive displacement pumping action at the liquid end. This pumping action will stall and hold pressure whenever the system down stream is closed. The final pressure is estimated by multiplying drive air pressure x the area ratio of each model. Drive air or gas can range from 3 to 150 PSI.

Typical Applications:
• Hydrostatic testing – Tanks, piping, instruments.
• Hydraulic clamps, presses, safety brakes.
• Valve actuators – Compact power source, pneumatically driven.
• Portable Tools – Compact power source for high pressure hydraulics

Benefits:
• Start/stop/restart under full load. Hold maximum pressure indefinitely.
• No electrical hazard in explosive or damp environments.
• Rated for water, oils, solvents, and most liquefied gases to high pressure.
• Simple maintenance.
• Simple control in fluid power circuits.

AIR PRESSURE AMPLIFIERS

These units are simplified versions of HII’s gas booster design in that they are designed to boost (amplify) the pressure of the same gas (shop air) used for drive. 

Benefits:
• Solve low air pressure problems at individual pneumatically actuated production machines.
• Provide higher test station air or nitrogen pressure economically.
