Gas Booster Systems

High Pressure Technologies Gas Booster Systems provide a compact, portable source for increasing gas pressures. These Air Driven Gas Booster Systems are shipped assembled and fully tested, ready for turn-key installation. Maximator Gas Booster Systems are an excellent alternative to high pressure stationary type compressors. These high pressure gas boosters systems offer a compact, lightweight design that requires no electrical power or lubrication, thereby providing a more flexible and efficient source for delivering high pressure gas.

Our Gas Booster Systems are capable of compressing most gases including nitrogen, argon, helium and hydrogen up to 36,000 psi. Systems featuring special seals and cleaning can pressurize oxygen to 5,000 psi. Our Gas Booster Systems can be used with, but not limited to, hazardous gases due to the Gas Booster System being modified to ensure vent ports are piped to a common vent connection. Maximator's Gas Booster Systems support a wide variety of compressed gases including hydrogen, natural gas, ethylene, nitrous oxide, neon, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and breathing air.

Consult High Pressure Technologies for special seals, venting, or cleaning requirements for all gas boosters. In applications where high output pressures are required and the gas supply pressure is low, Maximator gas boosters can be operated in series. High Pressure Technologies supplies Maximator air driven high pressure gas booster combinations in 2, 3 or 4 stage arrangements as complete packages. To achieve higher gas flows, two or more gas boosters can work in parallel as a unit. Consult High Pressure Technologies for more information on these special applications.
