- General Product Information
HIGH FLOW CAPACITY
REQUIRES NO LUBRICATION
DOUBLE ACTING, SINGLE STAGE
PRESSURES UP TO 855-PSI (ABD-5)
AIR OPERATED – DOES NOT REQUIRE ELECTRICITY
The ABD-2, ABD-2S and ABD-5 are double-acting, single stage air boosters in 2:1 and 5:1 ratios. These boosters can supply equipment with added air pressure when plant supplies are depleted due to overuse or under-sizing. The volume available from the boosters is ample for most equipment applications or units can be paralleled for additional capacity.
Applications requiring constant cycling should be sized so that the speed of operation does not exceed 40 cycles per minute (CPM). The easiest way to determine if an application meets or exceeds the recommended operating procedures is to fill out the online Air Booster Worksheet. Someone from our Customer Service Department will contact you ready to provide assistance.

M202 - Remote Pilot:These models utilize dual seals in the hydraulic assembly with a bleed-off between the seals to atmosphere, thus providing a visual indication of hydraulic seal leakage. Used where contamination of the air motor from the hydraulic fluid being pumped is objectionable.
M205 - Cooling Jacket: The "B" models have a bottom inlet connection for convenient tank top installation or alternate mounting configuration.
