In a “Run and Standby” configuration, the system will automatically switch between the two boosters in the event of a fault, ensuring the boosted gas pressure supply is unaffected. The system will also alternate every seven days (customisable), ensuring that wear on the bearings and drives is spread between two machines 🙈 This means that maintenance never interrupts supply of gas, as the alternative booster is in operation 🔥Having two boosters also eliminates downtime for the same reason. The maintenance team will check the system regularly to ensure that you always have at least one Gas Booster in operation. This also allows for the use of the Duty Standby APS Inverter System with all the benefits.
You can either use a soft start/booster motor variable speed drive/soft starter or install an anti-surge tank upstream from the booster. The anti-surge reservoir works by acting as a ‘damper’ between the inlet pipework and the inlet gas pressure switch. This ‘damping’ effect is created by fitting a restrictor in the connection between the inlet pipework and the reservoir. This stops the water from entering into the reservoir. Detection by the inlet pressure switch of momentary surges and changes As the booster turns on and off, the booster will adjust the inlet pressure accordingly. To ensure that the regulator is properly sized, the gas pressure switch must be activated within the required 3 seconds.

Mikki Laird resato.com Additional information is available. The large-diameter air-driven gas boosters use large diameter pistons and smaller diameter high pressure (HP), pistons. The action of the valves provides air supply to the piston that drives it up and down. The HP piston works in harmony with the air piston as they are mechanically connected. The HP piston draws gas into its chamber as it moves down the cylinder. It pushes the gas out of the chamber at much greater pressure when the piston returns to the top. This is due to the large diameter difference between HP pistons and air-drive ones. Also known as the lever effect, this is where high pressure can be achieved. Jorell Helm’s advice is greatly appreciated.
Sloane Zapata highpressuretech.com, the Maximator booster’s operating principle is similar to a pressure intensifier. One large piston, charged with low pressure air (air piston3), works on small areas with high pressure (hp (2)). A pilot-operated 4/2-way valve (spool) allows for continuous operation. The spool alternately leads the drive fluid on the surface of the air piston’s upper and lower surfaces. Two 2/2 way valves (7 pilot valves) control the spool. They are mechanically activated by the piston when it is in its final positions. The pilot valves both charge and displace the spool. The flow is delivered by the hp piston, which is supported by check valves (1) (inlet and outlet). The outlet pressure is directly related To the had previously set air drive pressure. The formulae with technical details of boosters allow you to calculate the static pressure. The pressure at which the force balance is reached between drive and gas sections can be calculated. This pressure causes the booster to stall and not use any more air. The booster is automatically started when the pressure drops at the high pressure or the pressure rises at the drive sides. This will allow the booster to regain its force balance. The MAXIMATOR boosters are also able to be turned on or off by external control devices, such as contact gauges, MAXIMATOR airpilot switches and MAXIMATOR contacts.
