Product Features and Specifications
- General Product Information
REQUIRES NO LUBRICATION
COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT
SINGLE ACTING, SINGLE STAGE
IDEAL FOR OEM APPLICATIONS
PRESSURES UP TO 680-PSI (AB-7)
AIR OPERATED – DOES NOT REQUIRE ELECTRICITY
The AB Series air booster is a compact, single-acting unit available in 1.7:1, 3.7:1 or 7:1 ratios. This booster is an inexpensive alternative for applications requiring 100-680 psi static holding pressures when low flow is acceptable. The air drive and supply are the same so no extra plumbing is required and no electrical connections are needed. The compact and lightweight size, and ability to operate in any position, has broad appeal for in-plant, mobile machinery, and OEM applications. The units are pre-lubricated therefore air line lubrication is not required.
