Howdon Air/Hydraulic Intensifier
Howdon have designed and developed a range of Pneumatic / Hydraulic Intensifier Units. These are used in conjunction with Twiflex Hydraulic caliper brakes but have many other Industrial applications.
A Twiflex hydraulic Applied Disc Brake Caliper giving high torque can be operated from a standard works pneumatic supply using a Howdon Air/ Hydraulic intensifier. The intensifier or booster converts the air pressure and produces a higher hydraulkic pressure . e.g. a works air supply pressure of 80 psi is increased to 1600 psi using a 20:1 Howdon Unit.
