Single Acting (SA) Gas Booster

A reciprocating, positive displacement gas pump with a directly coupled, integral linear reciprocating air motor. Hydratron’s Gas Booster pumps are designed to boost bottled or constant supply gases.

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.

SINGLE ACTING GAS BOOSTER 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

AVAILABLE WITH VALVES, GAUGES & FRAMES
