A booster air compressor or compressed air pressure amplifier operates on the simple principle that within a closed system (non-vacuum), the pressure increases as volume decreases. An air booster compression system comprises a receiver tank, pipework, and discharge tank.
An air booster is a device that “boosts” air pressure from a low-pressure inlet air source to a high-pressure outlet destination. Example: 3,000 psi to 4,500 psi. Boosters are powered either by electric pumps or low-pressure air. An Air Amplifier is a lower pressure version of an air booster.
