Milford, CT (PressExposure) March 30, 2009 -- Hydraulic pressures from 100 to 5,000 psi with only 60 psi air drive pressure can be achieved with a newly improved air driven liquid intensifier pump.
Designed and built in the USA by Interface Devices, Inc. (IDI), the TASQâ¢ LINE pumps incorporate robust design features such as aerospace PTFE based dynamic seals and aircraft quality aluminum components in a compact package. The company reports the TASQ LINE design objective was to offer increased value through a simple, robust and affordable air driven pump with significantly longer service life.
TASQ LINE air driven liquid pumps are well suited for intermittent flow and pressure applications such as clamping, crimping, roll tensioning, static pressure testing and power work holding. The pumps consume little or no energy upon achieving the desired hydraulic pressure. In this way, no heat is generated while maintaining pressure, eliminating the need for larger than required oil reservoirs and heat exchangers required with electric driven hydraulic units.
TASQ LINE pumps are all built to a standard specification including an NFPA DO3 (CETOP 3) valve pad and a self-contained oil reservoir sized from 40 to 120 cubic inches. The pumps come in hydraulic ratios from 5:1 to 60:1 of inlet air pressure.
IDI reports they will inventory all ratios to facilitate prompt deliveries. For applications requiring complex hydraulic circuitry, IDI also offers E, H & P Series air driven liquid pumps. These come in double acting and multi-ratio configurations for optimal efficiency. Multi-ratio pumps use a patented design to deliver high flow at low pressure and switch to high pressure mode on demand so minimum compressed air is used for each pressure cycle. The hydraulic pump bodies can be configured like a custom manifold for multi-faceted hydraulic functions in a compact package.
Interface Devices, Inc. has been designing and manufacturing custom fluid-power components for more than 30 years. Other products include air and gas boosters, air to fluid boosters, air amplifiers and zero-leak directional valves.
