High pressure systems are classified into; gas and liquid booster pumps. This article will be answering the frequently asked questions regarding the applications and functions of gas booster pumps.

What are Gas Booster Pumps?

Gas booster pumps are high pressure systems that increase the pressure of the gas above ambient pressure. They are also used to transfer high pressure gases without contaminating them.


How are Gas Boosters Different from Air Boosters?

Both the boosters are differentiated by one component. While the gas boosters are designed with a protective barrier, air boosters are not. The protective barrier placed between the air drive and gas compression prevents cross contamination.


What are their Applications?

  • Testing high pressure systems and their components
  • Testing hoses
  • Testing cylinders
  • Recovering gas
  • Testing leakages and gas pressurization
  • Transferring oxygen cylinders
  • And many more …
