A Gas Booster Reality Check
Comparing various specifications published for gas boosters, including the models we sell, can be misleading. The manufacturer published specifications are often the ideal maximums and minimums, and don't address duty cycle. Do not expect any booster to consistently deliver the ideal values. There are many other considerations, especially at low drive air volume or pressure, or low supply gas pressure. For example, with a supply gas pressure of 300 psi most boosters will stall at an output pressure of about 2,800 to 3,000 psi. On the bright side, our fill time charts are the actual observed real deal.
The DGX Gears X-30 is a value priced oxygen booster that is suitable for light and medium duty usage. The Haskel MSB-9000 is a premium quality oxygen booster manufactured in the USA that is suitable for heavy duty usage. A benefit of the Haskel booster is additional cooling provided by routing the cold exhausted drive air through a jacket surrounding the gas compression barrel.
