MAXIMATOR Booster Stations for nitrogen or a wide variety of other gases are complete booster stations ready for connection which are provided for generating operating pressures up to 2,400 bar.The Booster stations can be used for all kinds of testing and filliing, recovery of gases or for other functions requiring a determined high pressure.
MAXIMATOR offers an extensive volume of accessories for all cases of application. Part of them are pressure switches and pneumatically or electrically operated directional valves for controling the system. Connecting adaptors, quick couplings, pressure filters, high-pressure hoses as well as shut-off valves and control valves are available too.
We design the MAXIMATOR Booster Stations according to your requirements. Our sales engineers in the engineering departments world wide as well as our co-workers are pleased to give you expert advice and will recommend you the respective Booster Station being suitable for your special case of application.
The pressure will be generated by means of a pneumatically operated MAXIMATOR booster. The booster will be connected to the existing industrial compressed-air ductwork system. For generating the pressure, an electric connection will not be necessary.
MAXIMATOR Booster Stations can be equipped with all MAXIMATOR boosters. Restrictions result only from determined structural dimensions as well as from the flow rates of the pumps being necessary for the respective function.
For the simple commissioning and unproblematic application, MAXIMATOR Booster Stations will be equipped with all required components. Part of them is an air control unit with combined filter and water seperator, a pressure-regulating valve, a pressure control gauge as well as a manual shut-off valve for stopping off the drive air pressure.
The MAXIMATOR Booster Stations can be installed eighter on a base plate, a stainless steel protection frame with panel mounted control instruments or in a switching cabinet.
On the high-pressure side, the Booster Station will be equipped with a pressure relief valve (expansion valve) as well as with a manifold block with one or several pressure outlets for connecting the test pieces (which can be shut off separately or completely on request).
For indicating and monitoring the operating pressure, liquid-damped pressure gauges of the accuracy class 1.0 or 1.6 (higher accuracies are possible on demand) can be delivered.
With the above specified scope of supply, the MAXIMATOR Booster Station is ready for connection. For operating the Booster Station, only the drive air piping as well as the inlet gas pressure source has to be connected.
The stationary, movable and portable MAXIMATOR Booster Stations can be used wherever gases have to be compressed.
Examples for applications of the MAXIMATOR Booster Stations:
Charging of airbag systems with Helium to 800 bar (11,600 psi)
Pressure and leak test with high gas pressure
Transfer of oxygen in small cylinders for the life-guard service
Compression of gas and regulation for the gas assisted injection moulding in the plastic industry
Precharging of hydraulic accumulators by nitrogen
The required hydraulic pressure will be generated by means of air driven gas boosters. In this connection, the outlet pressure corresponds to the set air pressure multiplied by the transmission ratio of the booster. When the appliance reaches the pre-set pressure, it stops automatically and maintains the pressure until arising a pressure drop caused through leakage or the like. The appliance starts automatically and functions again until having reached the pre-set pressure.
All the controlling and regulating processes are of unsurpassed simplicity because of the compressed-air drive. So, the complete appliance is very robust, operationally reliable and insensitive to hardest operating stresses. The booster station will not be damaged through moist rooms, dust or higher temperatures. The MAXIMATOR Booster Stations are explosion-proof because no electric energy is required.
Advantages of the MAXIMATOR Booster Stations
- Standstill of the Booster when reaching the set final pressure
- No energy consumption in case of long pressure holding times
- No dissipated heat during the pressure holding phase
- Substitute of leakages by automatic re-delivery through the booster
- Control of the operating pressure through simple adjustment of the air drive pressure
- Simple installation, operationally reliable, easy to maintain
