Gas Boosters

HYDR-STAR Gas Boosters consist of a large area reciprocating air drive piston directly  coupled by a connecting rod to a small area gas piston. The gas piston operates in a high pressure gas barrel section. Each gas barrel end cap contains high pressure inlet and outlet check valves. Varying applications require many different booster and air drive head combinations.
The air drive section includes a cycling spool and pilot valves that provide continuous reciprocating action when air is supplied to the air drive inlet. The ratio between the area of the air drive piston and the gas driven piston is indicated by the number in the model description and approximates the maximum pressure the gas booster is capable of generating.
