ControlAir announced its Type 6100 high flow capacity volume booster designed to significantly increase the stroking speed in valve actuation system applications that require high forward flow and exhaust capacities.
This high flow capacity volume booster comprises a 1:1 signal to output relay and an integral bypass valve that provides system stability while allowing normal positioner airflow and normal valve actuation with small input changes.
The soft valve seat provides tight shutoff and eliminates leakage in steady state operation to reduce air consumption.
The Type 6100 booster handles up to 250 psig (17.0 bar) supply air pressure and provides output air pressure of up to 150 psig (10.0 bar). Temperature limits are -40° to 200°F (-40° to 93°C).
Exhaust capacity is up to 80 scfm (2,264 Nl/min) with downstream 5 psig (0.4 bar) above 20 psig (1.38 bar) setpoint. Supply pressure effect is 0.1 psig (.007 bar) for a 25 psig (1.7 bar) change.
The Type 6100 weighs 2.5 lbs (1.13 kg). Three output port options are available: 1/4”, 1/2” or 3/4” NPT.
