Maximator® gas boosters are an excellent alternative to high pressure stationary type compressors. These boosters 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.
Maximator® gas boosters will compress gases such as nitrogen and argon up to 21,750 psi, while oxygen can be compressed up to 5,000 psi using special seals and cleaning procedures. A wide variety of other gases can be compressed including hydrogen, natural gas, ethylene, nitrous oxide, neon, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and breathing air. Consult MAXPRO® for special seals, venting, or cleaning requirements for these gases.
In applications where high output pressures are required and the gas supply pressure is low, Maximator gas boosters can be operated in series. MAXPRO® supplies these booster combinations in 2,3 or 4 stage arrangements as complete packages. To achieve higher gas flows, two or more boosters can work in parallel as a unit Consult MAXPRO® for more information on these special applications.
MAXPRO® gas booster systems provide a compact, portable source for increasing gas pressures. These air driven booster systems are shipped assembled and fully tested, ready for turn-key installation. As with standard boosters, the gas booster systems require no electrical power, providing safe and economical operation.
Gas booster systems are capable of compressing most gases including nitrogen, argon, helium and hydrogen up to 20,000 psi. Systems featuring special seals and cleaning can pressurize oxygen to 5,000 psi. All MAXPRO systems for use with hazardous gases are modified to ensure vent ports are piped to a common vent connection.
