Booster Pumps

Unread postAuthor: Anon » Sun Oct 01, 2006 7:03 pm

Hello all, I am coming to end on my newest and first pneumatic cannon. My air compressor only does 125 psi which is perfect for my cannon but has anyone heard of a booster pump? If so whats the price range? and how reliable are they for increasing output. I have seen pneumatic ones and electric ones but yet have no seen a price tag.

unless your gun is made from metal it's not a good idea to go higher that 125psi

The booster pumps I am seeing are for water applications, so I guess the ebay auction was misleading. If you were making a water cannon these booster pumps along with a house water pump would make huge pressures.
