Single Acting Gas Booster Power Unit

A reciprocating, positive displacement gas pump with a directly coupled, integral linear reciprocating air motor. As a Standard Gas Power Unit (GPU), it responds to customers’ needs for pre-engineered and user-friendly Gas Booster systems.

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.

The Single Acting Gas Booster Power Unit can be provided as a pump only system.

SINGLE ACTING GAS BOOSTER POWER UNIT 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
