What's New


ControlAir introduced the Type 6100 High Flow Capacity Volume Booster. The booster is designed to significantly increase the stroking speed in valve actuation system applications that require high forward flow and exhaust capacities and has a 1:1 signal-to-output relay. A bypass valve provides system stability while allowing normal positioner airflow and normal valve actuation with small input changes.  The soft valve seat design provides tight shutoff and eliminates leakage in steady state operation to reduce costly air consumption.  The 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 -40º to 200ºF (-40º to 93ºC).  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. The Type 6100 weighs 2.5 pounds (1.13 kg) and has a choice of three output ports: ¼-inch, 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch NPT provides plumbing flexibility for easy hookup.
