A wide variety of industries depend on compressed air for many processes during their stages of production. Whether it’s an oil and gas operation or a food processing facility, many operators will need on-site air compression units. However, some industrial plants should consider using an air pressure booster to direct compressed plant air where it needs to go to maximize productivity and minimize costs.

What Is a High-Pressure Booster Compressor?
An air pressure booster system is a device that optimizes pre-compressed air circulating within an industrial system. Air from a low-pressure compressor can be multiplied by a booster to yield compressed air at significantly higher pressures. A standard air pressure booster pump can raise the pressure of circulating pre-compressed air as much as 10x its original value.
Air Pressure Booster Applications
Pressurized air boosters can help maximize the use of compressed air in many different industrial operations. Common booster air compressor applications may include:
- PET bottle production
- Pressure maintenance in die cushions
- Actuated braking systems
- Testing industrial conduit and pipeline pressures
- Gas injection enhanced oil recovery
- Improving maximum torque in small air tools
- Optimizing high-pressure tires
- Engine starter systems
Testing Industrial Pipeline Pressures
Air booster devices are often used in pipeline maintenance services to supply highly pressurized air. For example, industrial pipeline inspections usually require channeling a stream of compressed air through pipelines and removing the air through relief valves. If a misplaced loss of pressure is detected, this indicates a possible leak and maintenance can begin.

PET Bottle Production
Efficient polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottle production uses a steady stream of compressed air to achieve ideal bottle casting. Booster compressors assist by providing plastic mold machines that can implement the required stream and air pressure.
Enhanced Oil and Gas Recovery Techniques
Over time, the natural formation pressure in oil and gas wells starts to decrease, which in turn decreases recovered oil output. In order to combat this, compressed air can be introduced into oil wells as an enhanced recovery method. Booster compressors can help improve productivity and minimize natural formation pressure losses in natural oil and gas recovery.
