The compressed air booster boosts the compressed air system pressure on plasma systems.
For proper operation, certain plasma cutting systems require compressed air to be delivered at 120 PSI. Many industrial facilities are either unable or unwilling to maintain such high pressures in their compressed air system. The compressed air booster resolves the issue by boosting the compressed air system pressure and delivering the required 120 PSI to the plasma system.
The compressed air booster is an air-driven and does not require electricity, cooling water or an air-line lubricator. Additionally, the air pressure booster is explosion proof.
Shop air is fed to the inlet port through a filter and is split into two streams inside the booster. One stream flows to the compressor portion of the unit and is boosted to the higher pressure. The other stream drives the compressor portion and is consumed during booster operation.
