Air booster compressor

air booster

The vast majority of plant-air systems are capable of generating up to 125 psig. Special applications within a plant may require air, oil free or lubricated, at higher pressures.

An economical way of providing higher pressure air is to use a Corken reciprocating compressor. An Air Booster Compressor takes plant air and increases it up to 1080 psig.
