High Capacity Torch Boosters TB-60 TB-125 Torch Boosters

TB-60 and TB-125 Pressure Boosters raise gas pressure to 25 psi and provide flow at

either 60 cf/hr or 125 cf/hr. TB-125 can be modified to boost pressure to 50 psi

if higher pressure is required.

Both systems are about the size of a window air conditioner and measure 20” wide

by 16” tall and 18” deep. TB-60 weighs 90 lbs,; TB-125 weighs 125 lbs. They can be

installed “anywhere” indoors without special site preparation. They are quiet and can

be placed right in your work area.

A Pressure Booster is easy to use...just turn it on and get all the gas you need. When

you are not using gas the Pressure Booster automatically goes into recirculation mode.

They are designed to be left running for short periods when gas is not being used and

do not require operator attention while in use.

If you need high pressure natural gas for duty cycles running 24 hours then a

Heavy Duty Pressure Booster is a better choice. Click here to see TB-250H/C and

TB-500H/C Pressure Boosters.

The system includes a flexible 5’ hose for connection to the gas pipe and a shutoff valve. Customers may also purchase a regulator to set gas pressure between 1-25 psi.

TB-60 and TB-125 Pressure Boosters are Certified by CSA International, CE Compliant and are permitted in buildings that prohibit gases in cylinders, such as acetylene and propane.

The gas pipe supplying these Torch Boosters should be at least 3/4” diameter for the TB-60 and 1” diameter for the TB-125. Supply pressure should be less than 1 psi but with a special order your Pressure Booster can be modified to accept gas pressure as high as 5 psi.

Electrical requirements are 120V 15 amp for TB-60 and 120V 20 amp for TB-125. Both systems are available in a 230V 50Hz model.

TB-60 and TB-125 Pressure Boosters are about the

size of a window air conditioner and can be

installed “anywhere” without special site preparation.

Certified by CSA International, an OSHA Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory

TB-60/TB-125 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.

CE Compliant for use in

European Union countries

G-TEC Pressure Boosters are compliant with Council Directives for electrical equipment,electromagnetic compatibility, machinery and  pressure equipment.

An important advantage of a TB-60 or TB-125 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-60 and TB-125 Pressure Boosters are quiet and will fit right into your workspace.

G-TEC Pressure Boosters elevate natural gas pressure right where gas will be used..

G-TEC Pressure Boosters connect to a low pressure natural gas pipe that is already in your building and boost pressure to 25 psi (50 psi with a special order TB-125).

The system comes with a 5’ flexible hose and shut off valve that your plumber attaches to the existing gas pipe and that screws onto the Pressure Booster at the other end. Now you’re connected!

On the high pressure outlet many G-TEC users will install a regulator to set pressure between 1-25 (50) psi or the system can be connected to a downstream process at the full output pressure of 25 psi.

A 5 foot flexible hose is included with the  Pressure Booster to connect to the low pressure natural gas pipe.

A regulator can be added to adjust output pressure between 1-25 (50) 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
