TB-15 And TB-30 Torch Boosters For Up To 6 Torches

What is the right Torch Booster for my shop?

If your shop uses 1 or 2 bench torches and you don’t do any casting then the TB-15 Torch Booster is the right system for you.

 

If you have 3 or 4 torches, or do occasional casting, then you should choose the TB-30 Torch Booster. TB-30 can supply four bench torches at the same time, or 1 casting torch, but not all of them at the same time.

 

If you have all four torches and a casting torch in use at the same time a TB-60 Torch Booster is a better choice. Go to the TB-60 page.

FDNY will allow up to 2 torches to be connected to the TB-15 Torch Booster and up to 6 torches connected to the TB-30 Torch Booster.

 

How does a Torch Booster work?

Both systems connect to your low-pressure utility natural gas pipe and boost pressure high enough to make gas flow through the flashback arrestor check valve and give you a hot flame on the torch.

 

Turn the Torch Booster on in the morning and off at the end of the day  and that is all you need to do. Torch Boosters automatically supply the right amount of natural gas - you don’t need to adjust it during the day.

 

Torch Boosters are quiet and can be installed right next to your bench jewelers.

 

They boost utility natural gas to 25 psi, then you use a regulator to lower pressure to between 3 and 7 psi, which is the recommended pressure for most bench torches or 10 psi, which works best for casting torches.

 

How big is a Torch Booster?

TB-15 and TB-30 Torch Boosters are compact; 12 “ wide, 12” tall and 16” deep. They weigh about 50 lbs.

 

Both systems use 120V 15 amp electrical power.

 

Both systems require a 1/2” utility natural gas supply pipe.

Why your need Torch Booster.png

There are important reasons why jewelers should have a G-TEC Torch Booster!

OSHA and municipal fire codes require flashback arrestors on any torch that mixes fuel gas and high pressure oxygen.

But in most places city gas pressure is so low that a flashback arrestor will block gas flow - a Torch Booster raises city gas pressure so that you can work safely and get great performance from your torch.

And most jewelers’ torches are designed to work with fuel gas pressure between 3-7 psi but city gas pressure is only ¼ psi. Get better performance from your torch when you use the fuel gas pressure it was designed for!

In many places cylinders of propane or acetylene are prohibited but jewelers use them because they don’t see city gas as a viable option. G-TEC Torch Boosters are permitted everywhere so jewelers get superior performance from natural gas and stay on the right side of the law.
