TB-15 / TB-30 Torch Booster Description

TB-15 and TB-30 Torch Boosters raise standard utility natural gas pressure, often as low as 1/4 psi (7"WC) as high as 25 psi with a flow rate of either 15 cfh (15,000 BTU) or 40 cfh (40,000 BTU).

A Torch Booster is easy to use, just turn it on and get all the gas flow you need. When your torch or burner is lit the Torch Booster provides gas, when the torch or burner is not lit the Torch Booster puts itself into recirculation mode. TB-15 and TB-30 Torch Boosters are ready to use as soon as they are turned on - there are no storage tanks to fill and the Booster does not store any gas. They boost pressure and supply gas to the application as gas is used. The only controls are ON and OFF - the Torch Booster automatically adjusts to the gas flow demand of your torch or burner.

Typical Applications

Typical applications for the TB-15 Torch Booster are light brazing, glass lampworking and jewelry manufacturing.

Typical applications for the TB-30 Torch Booster include single torch flame cutting, brazing, single burner NC Tool Forge, glass lampworking, jewelry manufacturing and shrink wrapping with one Shrinkfast Model MZ Heat Tool.

Technical Description and Installation

TB-15 and TB-30 Torch Boosters are Certified by CSA International and are permitted in buildings where gases in cylinders, such as propane and acetylene, are prohibited.

Utility supply gas pressure can range between 3.5" WC and 5 psi. The building gas supply pipe should be at least 1/2" diameter and present a 1/2" male tee for connection of the Torch Booster.
