What is an Electric Air Pressure Booster?

An electric air pressure booster, sometimes referred to as an “Electric gas booster” or “air amp,” is a device that boosts air pressure from a low-pressure inlet source to a high-pressure outlet destination.

Why Use an Electric Air Booster or Electric Gas Booster?

An electric gas booster may be used whenever there is a need to boost pressures from lower to higher levels, or to reduce the fill times of devices when time is of the essence. Compact and efficient, our electric air pressure boosters boost the lower level pressure source to higher levels for rapid filling of the destination device, such as the smaller, modern SCBAs used by firefighters and rescue workers.

Give a “Boost” to SCBA Systems

With many first responders shifting to smaller SCBAs to reduce the overall weight of equipment, air cylinders require higher pressure to maintain the same air usage time. Traditional compressors may not be able to fill high-pressure SCBAs, leaving users vulnerable as their tanks provide less air and usage time. A 3D Instruments electric air pressure booster ensures complete fills up to 4500 PSI, helping facilities avoid the costly addition of high-flow air compressors.

  • Smaller SCBA cylinders require higher pressure to maintain the same air usage time and existing in-house compressors may not be able to fill high-pressure SCBAs

  • Replacing high-pressure, high-flow air compressors is costly, and air storage facilities often require costly modifications to accommodate new compressors

  • Cascade systems cannot completely fill SCBA cylinders if the top cascade cylinder falls below 4500 PSI; an electric air pressure booster ensures complete fills

Applications for A 3D Instruments Electric Air Pressure Booster

RESCUE VEHICLES

  • Maximize the use of breathing air in storage cylinders, resulting in an increase in the number of complete SCBA fills per storage cylinder
  • Reduce fill times by eliminating the need to cascade air storage cylinders; when used with an a electric gas booster, all air storage cylinders can be fully opened and do not require cascading
  • Eliminate the possibility of contaminated air at fire incidents when used in conjunction with an air storage system

FIRE STATIONS

  • Enhance the capability of existing low-pressure compressors; for example, if a fire department has a 3000 PSI compressor and switches to 4500 PSI air packs, an electric air pressure booster is less costly than a new compressor
  • Extend the service life of existing compressors by operating at lower pressures; running compressors at lower pressures extends compressor life

HAZMAT

  • Avoid restrictions imposed by government regulations on the use of high-pressure compressors at hazardous material manufacturing locations; using a cascade system in conjunction with an electric air pressure booster, and replenishing the air supply from a local fire department or welding supply shop, maximizes the use of air from the cascade system and minimizes the costs of stored air and government compliance

OTHER APPLICATIONS

  • SCUBA
  • Paintball Gun Air Tanks
  • Mine Safety Equipment

3D Instruments also manufactures argon, helium, and nitrox electric gas boosters designed to achieve up to 6000 PSI.
