TB-250 / TB-500 Torch Booster For Large Jewelry Manufacturers and Large Schools

What is the right Torch Booster for my shop?

If your shop uses up to 24 bench torches, or has 2 or more casting torches, then TB-250 Torch Booster is the right G-TEC system.

 

If you have up to 60 bench torches or up to 4 large casting torches then you should choose the TB-500 Torch Booster.

Note: Torch Booster capacities are for the number torches in simultaneous use. Outside of New York City there is no limit on the number of torches that can be connected to a unit.

 

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.

 

TB-250 and TB-500 systems boost utility natural gas to 45 psi, then use a regulator to lower pressure to between 3 and 7 psi for bench torches of 10 psi for casting torches.

 

How big is a Torch Booster?

TB-250 and TB-500 Torch Boosters are 28 “ wide, 20” tall and 24” deep. TB-250 weighs 175 lbs; TB-500 weighs 285 lb.

 

Both systems are available for 208V 60 Hz or 230V 50 Hz single phase 30 amp electrical service.

 

Both systems require a 1 1/2” utility natural gas supply pipe with gas pressure between ¼ - 5 psi.

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.
