The Hydratron Single Acting Air Driven Gas Booster is a reciprocating, positive displacement gas pump with a directly coupled, integral linear reciprocating air motor, designed to generate high pressure gas output. With Single Acting models the pressure increase is made possible by means of the area ratio between the larger diameter air drive piston directly connected to a smaller diameter gas piston. The reciprocating action of the gas booster draws gas at low pressure into the booster then displaces the gas at a higher pressure output from the booster into a closed system. All Models can easily be incorporated into easy to operate Standard System gas power/transfer units.

Key Features

Hydratron Single Acting Air Driven Gas Boosters offer many desirable features:

  • Ability to stall at a predetermined pressure and hold this fixed pressure without consuming power or generating heat
  • No risk of flame or spark
  • Infinitely variable speed/output flowrate control
  • Infinitely variable output pressure control
  • Easy to apply automatic controls
  • Standard models are suitable for Air, Nitrogen & Helium. Design options are available for more hazardous gases
  • No limit or adverse effects in continuous stop/start applications
  • Proven reliability, easy to maintain and robust

Specification

Air Motor:
Mainly anodized Aluminium with filament-wound composite air cylinder, carbon steel zinc plated tie bolts and nitrile seals.

Hydraulic Section:
Aluminium Bronze, Stainless Steel and Nitrile seals are standard.
