Harwood Series 2.5 Intensifiers

Our standard laboratory sized intensifiers. Originally designed for use with small liquid systems, they have occasionally been used for the last stage of gas compressors. There are a few models to choose from, all with varying pressure ratings and displacements – usually sufficient for laboratory type work. Information on our larger intensifiers can be found on the page Intensifiers, Hydraulically Driven Pumps, & Compressors.

Gas Boosters

We have come to designate a few of our more popular gas compressors as “standard” offerings. The DA-4 and SA-7 inert gas compressor systems are two standard offerings which often find use in laboratory work. The SA-10 is another intensifier commonly fitted for gas compressor systems but is more often used for industrial applications such as chemical plants, polyethylene production, and other pilot plant operations.
