TB-60 Torch Boosters For Major Torches and Classroom Studios

What is the right Torch Booster for my studio?

If you use a major sized torch such as the Nortel Major, MidRange Plus, Phoenix, CC Bench Burner, GTT Phantom, Delta Elite, Mirage, Carlisle Hellcat or similar torch then the TB-60 Torch Booster is the right system for you.

 

If you plan to use the Torch Booster in a classroom setting then TB-60 can operate 6 minor torches simultaneously. If your studio has more than 6 minor torches we have larger systems for you - call G-TEC at 1-716-831-9695 to discuss your requirements!

How does a Torch Booster work?

TB-60 Torch Boosters connect to your low-pressure utility natural gas pipe and boost pressure to get the best performance from your torch. Most lamp working artists prefer fuel gas pressure at 5 - 10 psi but utility gas pressure is often less than 1 psi and the flame is weak.

 

Turn the Torch Booster on when you begin work and off when you are done and that is all you need to do. Torch Boosters automatically supply the right amount of natural gas - you don’t need to adjust or turn it off and on between tasks.

 

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

 

They boost utility natural gas to 25 psi, then use a regulator to lower pressure to between 3 and 7 psi, which is the right pressure for most torches, although some artists prefer higher pressure with larger boro rods. TB-60 supplies up to 60 cubic feet of natural gas per hour.

 

How big is a Torch Booster?

TB-60 Torch Boosters are about the size of a window air conditioner-20 “ wide, 16” tall and 18” deep. TB-60 weighs about 90 lbs.

TB-60 Torch Booster uses 120V 15 amp electrical power and connects to a 3/4” utility natural gas pipe.
