High-Pressure Air-Driven Liquid Pumps

High-Pressure Air-Driven Liquid Pumps

MAXPRO’s Maximator® air-driven piston-style reciprocating pumps are a fast and effective pumping solution capable of delivering a wide range of pressures and flow rates. Our pumps get their power from a compressed air source and combine positive displacement with the capability to hold pressure for long periods of time. A variety of material and seal options allow almost any fluid to be pressurized. Maximator® pumps are rugged and rebuildable and can tolerate all installation positions and most environments.

This page will discuss the function and advantages of these pumps and how to determine the best pump for your needs.

High-Pressure Air-Driven Liquid Pumps Operating Instructions

Our high-pressure pneumatic pumps are easy to operate using the following instructions.

Air Driven Liquid Pumps - Getting Started

Getting Started

  1. Connect the pneumatic pump supply lines.
  2. Connect the lines for compressed air, outlet, and inlet
  3. Configure the drive pressure.
  4. Slowly open the compressed air supply to start the pump.
Air Driven Liquid Pumps - Building Pressure

Building Pressure

  1. Pressure automatically builds within the pump.
  2. The pilot valve disperses pulses of air to automatically cycle the spool valve.
  3. The liquid suctions.
High Pressure Guage

Maintain Pressure

  1. The pump maintains stable pressure.
  2. When the desired pressure is achieved, the pump will stop automatically.
  3. Pressure is maintained without consuming energy or losing heat.
  4. When pressure drops, the pump will restart automatically.
