Pressure Intensifier, pneumatic driven
A pressure intensifier (also known as a 'booster') is a free-piston machine with a drive piston mechanically linked to a working piston. Both pistons have the same forces and stroke lengths. The pressure is usually boosted from a low drive pressure to a higher working pressure. Hence, the pressure increase is inversely proportional to the ratio of piston areas. However, the working volume decreases in relation to the drive vol-ume according to the ratio. Our standard pressure intensifiers are designed to be driven by air with standard commercial pneumatic components at operating pressures of up to 10 bar. However, our pressure intensifiers can also be driven at much higher pressures and with other gaseous media. Further information can be provided upon request. The pressure or flow required on the working side (secondary) is set / regulated on the drive side (primary) by pressure reducers, throttle valves or the corresponding proportional valves. In many areas pneumatically driven pressure intensifiers represent low-cost alternatives for generating high pressures in any media.
