When you need natural gas at pressures between 60 - 150 psi or you plan to run test cycles of 24 hours for several days and weeks at a time a Heavy Duty Pressure Booster is recommended.

These Pressure Boosters add a Compressor Cooler Module that keeps the system temperature low and extends system lifespan.

C Series Heavy Duty Torch Boosters are for applications where gas pressure is up to 60 psi and in-service around the clock, every day.

H Series Heavy Duty Torch Boosters are for applications where gas pressure is between 60-150 psi regardless of duty cycle.

The Compressor Cooler Module is connected to the Pressure Booster with either 2 - 5’ flexible hoses (TB-250H/C) or 4 - 5’ flexible hoses (TB-500H/C). Power is provided by the Pressure Booster - power and compressor controls on the Pressure Booster operate both units.

In addition to the Pressure Booster the cabinet for the Compressor Cooler Module measures 24” W x 24” D x 20” T and weighs 150 lbs. For the TB-250H/C the Compressor Cooler Module measures 20” W x 16” T x 18” D and weighs 80 lbs.

Electrical power requirement is 208V 60 Hz single phase 30 amp or 230 V 50Hz single phase 30 amp.

Heavy Duty Pressure Boosters use an adjunct Cooling Module

to reduce heat buildup at high pressures over long duration test cycles.

An important advantage of a TB-250H/C or TB-500H/C Pressure Booster is that it can be installed right in the area where high pressure natural gas will be used. Just connect to a low pressure natural gas pipe already in your building and make high pressure natural gas readily available.

Many natural gas compressors must be installed outdoors with lengthy piping required to bring high pressure gas service to the point where it is used. A G-TEC installation is simple and less expensive.

G-TEC systems also do not require special ventilation or other expensive site preparation to be installed in a normal working environment. TB-250H/C and TB-500H/C Pressure Boosters are quiet and will fit right into your workspace.

G-TEC Pressure Boosters connect to a low pressure natural gas pipe that is already in your building and boost pressure to 150 psi.

The system has 2 gas inlets, one if your building supply pressure is less than 1 psi and a second for utility natural gas pressure between 1-5 psi.

On the high pressure outlet many G-TEC users will install a regulator to set pressure between 1-150 psi or the system can be connected to a downstream process at the full output pressure of 150 psi.

A G-TEC Pressure Booster can be 50% less expensive to purchase and install compared to other high pressure natural gas compressors because the equipment itself costs less and installation is not as complex as an outdoor compressor requires.

There is no expensive administrative time to secure permits, no special safety or environmental site requirements. Maintenance is simple to perform and parts are not expensive. Training required for operation and maintenance is minimal.

Simple indoor installation without special site preparation

TB-250/TB-500 Pressure Boosters are Certified By CSA-International

CSA International is accredited in the United States by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL), and in Canada by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC).

Across North America the CSA label on the G-TEC Pressure Booster is sufficient for approval by building inspectors, fire marshals and other authorities.

G-TEC Pressure Boosters are even welcomed in buildings that prohibit fuel gases such as propane which are stored in cylinders or bulk tanks.

G-TEC Systems are CE Compliant

Whatever your pressure and flow requirement there is a G-TEC Torch Booster to meet your requirements!

There are separate gas inlets for supply of natural gas at <1 psi or between 1-5 psi

Install your Torch Booster “anywhere” - no special site preparation required.
