This booster increases flows by up to 500%

By Chemical Engineering |

This patented volume and filter booster range in 316L stainless steel provides up to 500% higher flow than the market equivalents, says the manufacturer. By removing all elements from the main flow line, including regulators and filters, theScreen Shot 2017-05-23 at 9.54.20 AM effective Cv of the booster is multiplied, resulting in significantly reduced tubing sizes. Where safety is critical, the range of boosters is SIL 3 third-party certified to IEC 61508 Parts 1 & 2. In applications where a fast response time on modulating service, in combination with a fast shutdown time, is required, the device also eliminates the need for an additional poppet or quick exhaust valve to achieve the required closing speeds. This results in reduced material and labor costs and simplifies positioned setup and control. The range functions with a working pressure range of 2 to 10 barg, with maximum inlet pressure of 20 barg, and operates at a working temperature of –55 to 180°C. — Bifold Fluidpower Ltd., Manchester, U.K.
