空气放大器工业设备设计to increase air pressure to improve pneumatic tool operation. When centralized air pressure systems are insufficient to power air-driven tools, air amplifiers can fill localized demand. Depending on the type of unit, air amplifiers have various pressure and flow capabilities, ranging anywhere from 30 to 4,350 PSI. Because there is such a wide selection of air amplifier designs available on the market, it is important to carefully select the right one for your intended application.
Air-driven air amplifiers use the principle of differential areas to generate pressure. By having a higher ratio of inlet to outlet piston areas, air amplifiers utilize shop air, use some of that air as power to operate the unit (called the ‘drive air’), and intensifies the remainder of the inlet air into pressurized output. Shop air utilizes a four-way spool valve to affect cycling, then exhausts the drive air. There are two main ways MAXPRO® Air Amplifier Systems achieve this:
PLV Series: These units have two fixed area pistons. During cycling, the air amplifier utilizes one of the pistons to effectively double the incoming air pressure.
