ControlAir, a manufacturer of precision pneumatic and electro-pneumatic control products, launched new Type-6500/6600 large flow capacity volume boosters. The Type-6500 aluminium and Type-6600 stainless steel volume boosters are designed to significantly increase the stroking speed in valve actuation system applications that require high flow capacity.
The Type-6500 and Type-6600 Large Flow Volume Boosters are ideal for any application that requires high flow capacity or remote pressure control. Typically, they are used to increase throttling speed of large volume control valve actuators. Other OEM applications include printing presses, textile machinery, tire machinery, paper machinery, paint spray systems, pneumatic pump control and clutch and brake control.
The Large Flow Boosters handle up to 250psig supply pressure and deliver an output pressure up to 150psig. The units provide a flow capacity of up to 400SCFM, temperature range of -40°C to 93°C and an exhaust capacity of 100SCFM with downstream 5psig above setpoint. Supply pressure effect is 0.3psig for a 100psig change. The Type-6500 Aluminium Volume Booster weighs 2.95kg and the Type-6600 Stainless Steel Volume Booster weighs 6.8 kg.
