Air Amplifiers and Air Boosters for Efficient Air System Promotion


Air Amplifiers, also referred as Air Boosters is one of the simplest and most economical tools for an air system that requires a higher pressure of air to operate than currently available. This precisely engineered air amplifier range is designed to boost or increase the supply of air pressure at work stations and pneumatically operated machinery when the available working pressure is in short supply.

Air boosters or air amplifiers can be coupled with other air operated tools to enhance their efficiency. Thus, they present a very effortless and cost-effective method of meeting your desired air pressure requirements. These air pressure amplifiers or air boosters are suitable for applications that require pressures ranging from 30 PSI to 4,350 PSI. We offer you a wide selection of air amplifiers and air boosters that help you attain the desired plant pressure.

Features of Air Pressure Amplifiers - Air Boosters
  • Boosts air pressure from 30 psi to 4,350 psi
  • Are Available in a Compact, light-weight and portable designs
  • Easy to install and operate
  • Single or double acting
  • No electrical power required
  • “Stall” at target pressure, automatic restart after a drop of only 1% from target pressure
  • PTFE SEALS
  • Unregulated pilot air port for easy restart and better control on all DLA, SPLV2 and GPLV2 models (1/8" FNPT)
  • Standard and custom application designed systems
Applications of Air Pressure Amplifiers - Air Boosters
  • Boost insufficient shop air or supply air
  • Work benches and equipment with limited space
  • High pressure air cleaning of weld areas
  • Drive pneumatic cylinders
  • Blow-off, cooling and drying applications
  • Improve efficiency of pneumatic tools and machinery
  • Boost air for part removal, valve gates and/or automation equipment for injection molding

How Air Amplifiers or Air Boosters Work?

Air amplifiers and air boosters are ideal for increasing or boosting existing plant air pressures. Each air amplifier and air booster comprises a spool valve that acts as a 4-way directional control valve. Plant air is supplied to this spool valve which automatically cycles back and forth. The plant air fed into the spool valve is alternately directed, as the spool cycles, to the main air drive piston in the air drive cylinder. This causes the piston to cycle back and forth in the air amplifier or air booster.

The air amplifier or air booster also comprises a high pressure section where the air to be pressurized is supplied. The air flows into the air amplifier's pressure chamber, through the inlet check valve(s), on the suction stroke and is pressed out of the chamber, through the outlet check valve(s), on the discharge stroke. The reciprocating movement of the air drive section, connected directly to the high pressure section, creates a positive displacement of air through the inlet and outlet check valves.

There are single and double acting Air Amplifier and Air Booster models available. The single acting air amplifiers and air boosters displace air once per full cycle. The double acting air amplifier or air booster will displace air every stroke, or twice per full cycle, providing higher and more constant flows.

These air amplifiers or air boosters can be installed in any position. All connections to the air amplifier or air booster must be run with equal to or greater than the connection size on the air amplifier and air booster.

PLEASE NOTE:  A dry air spool option is available for very dry air applications or when driving with nitrogen instead of compressed air.
