AIR INTENSIFIER Compressed Air Pressure Booster

To run an entire compressed air system in the most efficient and cost effective way, it is usual to run compressed air systems are typically operated at the lowest pressure possible.

Operating Principle

The Air Intensifiers available from SB Services are suitable for particular applications or at points-of-use where a small volume of air is required at a higher pressure than the rest of your compressed air system.  The pressure booster will raise the pressure of the inlet compressed air by a ratio of 2:1, up to a maximum of 12 Bar.

The Intensifiers are available with a single or double intensifier head dependent upon the flow required.  The intensifier is mounted on a 37 Litre horizontal receiver, complete with pressure relief valve, manual drain and pressure regulator and gauge.


  • Boost insufficient supply air pressure
  • Work benches and equipment with limited space
  • Blow-off, drying or cooling applications
  • Single head air Intensifiers particularly suitable for actuators (e.g. robotic manipulators) which may require boosted air pressure to transfer and hold a payload at static flow.
  • Double head air intensifiers operate particularly well when supplying x to y and z must be maintained…
  • Boosts air pressure from xx psi to xxx psi
  • ‘Stall’ at target pressure, automatic restart after drop of X% from target pressure
  • No electrical power required
  • Single or double acting
  • Easy to install and operate
  • Unregulated pilot air port for easy restart and better control
  • Custom air amplifier system can be designed to suit your specific flow and pressure needs
  • Bespoke designs will incorporate the options and features your particular application demands
  • Design elements that can be varied to meet your unique needs include inlet and outlet sizes, overall size, tank size and psi rating and air amplifier type.
