Gas Booster

Why Use a Haskel Gas Booster

Haskel pneumatic and hydraulic driven gas boosters offer a flexible and efficient source for delivering high pressure gases.

Oxygen or High Purity Cleaning: Haskel boosters are noted for their cleanliness and can handle pure gases such as oxygen without risk of any contamination. Haskel’s oxygen cleaned products are certified per Mil Spec 1330. 

Multi-Staging Capability: For higher flow rates and pressures, beyond the capability of a single gas booster, one or more boosters of the same ratio may be plumbed in parallel and then in series with one or more boosters of the same ratio.

High Flow Rates at High Pressures: When high flow rates at high pressures are needed, the booster can charge a receiver to an even higher pressure level, thus storing a volume of gas available for rapid release at a constant pressure through a pressure reducing valve.

Cost Savings: Most industrial gases are commonly delivered at pressures of 2,000 – 2,600 psi in steel cylinders. If the gas is to be used well below the supply pressure, the pressurized supply is easily piped and controlled to the point of use with simple valving. However, if the end use requires the gas to be used at higher pressures than the supply it will have to be boosted. Gas Boosters can utilize all the gas from a supply source such as cylinders, and boost the gas to whatever pressures (and flows) are required by the application; thus utilizing all the gas volume from the supply source.

If the application requires a pressure greater than common supply cylinder pressures, a booster can often be justified not only because of utilization of the gas, but also because it will eliminate the need to purchase the gas in special higher pressure more costly supply cylinders such as 3,600 or 6,000 psi.

Gas booster compressors are suitable for transfer and pressurization of:
  1. Nitrogen (N2)
  2. Helium (He)
  3. Breathing Air (N202)
  4. Nitrous Oxide (N20)
  5. Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
  6. Neon (Ne)
  7. Argon (Ar)
  8. Sulphur Hexafluoride (SF6)
  9. Oxygen (O2)*
  10. Carbon Monoxide (C)**
  11. Hydrogen (H2)**
  12. Methane (CH4)**
  13. Ethylene (C2H4)**
  14. Deuterium (D2)**
  15. Natural Gas (CH4)**  (often contains high proportion of CO2 & N2)
Note: Liquefied gases (propane, CO2, nitrous oxide, halons, etc.) can be boosted as a liquid or gas in controlled applications.
* Oxygen (O2)- maximum safe working pressure 345 bar (5000 psi).
** For these gases (10-15), the gas booster must be operated in a safe and well ventilated area and vent(s) piped to controlled environment.

Maximum average acceptable temperature: 115°C (240°F).
