HASKEL’S series of electric driven gas boosters offer contamination-free operation at lower cost and smaller size than metal diaphragm compressors.

The new EDA Series eliminates oil migration in applications using all inert gases including nitrogen, helium, argon, CO2 and air. The booster's design includes separation, therefore, only cleaning is necessary in order to use it for oxygen service.

Applications include pressure maintenance, gas scavenging and recovery in facilities using a wide range of bulk specialty gases, such as plastics manufacturing, air conditioner manufacturing and remanufacturing, offshore oil and gas platforms and hospitals.

With inlet between 750psi and 2,600psi, the boosters provide maximum outlet pressure of 5,000psi. They are also available in a two-stage configuration allowing higher gas flow rates with reduced inlet pressures (as low as 450psi).

Unlike compressors, the gas boosters accept a pressurised inlet, allowing them to start under load. The non-lubricated linear bearing assures minimal contamination to the gas, with no need for separation during processing or conditioning afterward. A gas seal package allows simple maintenance.

Standard features include inlet and outlet pressure gauges, automatic shut-off switch, variable pressure setting controls, gas safety valve and service duty monitor.

Electric motor specifications (voltage, phase and hertz) can be specified with order; standard power is 1.5HP.

IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and explosion proof motors are also available.

Haskel International is a world leader in the fluid power industry, manufacturing a complete line of air amplifiers, gas boosters and liquid pumps for general industrial applications. Its products are also used in the oil and gas, defense, aerospace and automotive markets.

The company is a subsidiary of Milton Roy, a division of Hamilton Sundstrand and United Technologies.
