- Double Acting Single Stage Model “AGD” boosters not only pump twice the volume of the AG Series per cycle, but also require less air drive since the inlet gas pressure itself provides a substantial portion of the required driving force
- Air driven - no electricity required
- No airline lubricator required
- Hydrocarbon free - separation between air and gas sections
- Pressures to 39,000 psi (2690 bar)
- Built-in-cooling on most models

Double Acting Single Stage Model “AGD” boosters not only pump twice the volume of the AG Series per cycle, but also require less air drive since the inlet gas pressure itself provides a substantial portion of the required driving force. These models provide efficient means of boosting large volumes of gas at low to medium compression ratios.
The selection of the proper Gas Booster for any application starts with determining which booster “series” will provide the amount of flow required. This can be determined by the chart information provided in the Overview Tab. The possible ratios for the application are determined by examination of the performance data for the booster using the air pressure and air flow available. The ability of the booster to generate pressure is a function of the drive pressure, the nominal ratio, and the maximum compression ratio. The ability to generate flow is a function of the quantity of air available to drive it, the displacement per cycle of the pump, and the volumetric efficiency. Within each booster series, there are standard materials of construction available. For applications involving aggressive gases, some material substitutions may be possible.
Maximum outlet pressure is drive area ratio times air pressure.
