Pressure booster, bore 100, compression ratio 1:2
Boost ratio X2
Order code: UM11-100RC1.2
Mechanically, the pressure booster is composed of two pistons, with a 100 bore, connected between them, which compress alternatively the inlet air. These pistons are controlled by a 5/2 pneumatic valve, in turn controlled by two limit switches. The pressure booster starts automatically, as soon as a pressure is applied to the inlet, and work until it reaches four times the inlet pressure. The outlet pressure can be adjusted by using a pressure regulator mounted at the inlet. The presence of a non-return valve allows to keep the pressure multiplied even in the absence of inlet pressure.
We recommend you to use an air tank, to avoid pressure pulse. An optional non-return valve can be useful to speed up the initial filling of the system.
The pressure boosters are not designed to operate in place of a compressor, but to provide momentary pressure increases on applications that require greater pneumatic force.
The booster has an average life of over 20 million cycles when the conditions of use are optimal, that is a high degree of air quality, minimum 50 microns filtration. Wherever it is possible do not use lubricated air.
Replacement kit for the seals are available on request.
Maximum working pressure: 10 Bar
