Open centre booster

 General Description

open-centre booster (Shema)Master cylinders with open centre booster have been produced since 1979 and they were the first products to be manufactured by SAFIM. Thanks to continuous improvements, this kind of master cylinder is extremely economic and reliable.
Open centre boosters are of the follower-type; the push-rod has a sensitive surface providing a reaction proportional to the booster working pressure. This kind of booster must be fed by a continuous oil flow.
The pressure inside the booster is limited by a safety valve included in the booster itself. The safety valve is usually set according to the maximum braking pressure.
All booster installed on master cylinders for brake fluid (DOT 3-4) have a chamber opened towards the outside. If the master cylinder is for mineral oil, this chamber is usually connected to the tank.
