Starting Your Gas Booster Under Load: Boosting Gas Pressure Efficiently

Whether your booster or compressor is run continuously or intermittently, all equipment is taken offline at some point. Restarting the compressor can be frustrating because most compression equipment, such as piston and diaphragm designs, can run under load but are not designed to start under load. So, if you have a high pressure source, which is the best way of transporting large volumes of gas, this pressure must be reduced during the startup phase. This can be very costly if the installation or process requires frequent starting and stopping. Not only is the energy wasted, the gas is also wasted because it has to be vented to atmosphere.

As more manufacturers and operators look for cleaner, more cost-efficient technology that can support greater ROI, electric gas boosting designs may see increased demand over traditional designs. Electric-driven gas boosters are designed to start in a loaded condition, helping you transfer gases with maximum efficiency.

Advancing High-Pressure Safety Solutions for Aerospace

With flying being one of the most popular travel methods, the considerations and regulations regarding safety have become increasingly important. Before passengers step foot on an aircraft, manufacturers pay significant attention to the intricacies of air travel. To survive high altitudes and low atmospheric pressure, a pressurization system is put on all aircraft to assist passenger breathing. These pressurization systems constantly pump fresh, outside air into the airplane body allowing for safe and convenient air travel. Having a reliable pressurization system is crucial to the safety of the pilots and passengers on board, but what happens when pressure is compromised? Having reliable backup air is critical to the performance of the pilots, and safety of the passengers.
