Boost city gas pressure to 150 psi / 10 bar for HVOF

High pressure natural gas is an excellent fuel for High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) thermal spray, flame spray, combustion guns and similar metallizing applications. 

●    Natural gas costs up to 75% less than propane or propylene for equal heat performance and it is much cleaner than liquid fuel gases.

●    And because natural gas is always a gas it will not re-liquify in your spray gun and force expensive downtime while the gun is cleaned.

 

●    There’s no need to store gas cylinder inventory because a Torch Booster is connected directly to the gas utility supply so you will never run out of fuel gas 

●    Improve workplace safety when cylinder storage and handling are eliminated

●    Natural gas performs well with coating quality equal to slightly better than propane or propylene.

Outdoor Compressor 4x3 100 dpi.jpg

Until now  using high pressure natural gas required a large expensive compressor installed outdoors on a concrete pad with expensive welded high pressure pipe running through the building to the HVOF booth. Frequently a building permit is required to install this type of compressor.

A G-TEC TB-HVOF system is installed indoors, right next to your spray booth.

TB-HVOF Torch Boosters


TB-HVOF Torch Booster supplies 150 psi natural gas at a flow rate up to 500 scfh (500,000 BTU) from a ¼ psi / .017 bar utility natural gas supply. With 15 psi / 1 bar utility gas supply TB-HVOF will run 2 HVOF systems simultaneously.

TB-HVOF is easy to use...just turn it on and it is ready for immediate service - there are no storage tanks to fill. The only controls are ON and OFF because the Booster automatically adjusts to the gas flow used by your spray gun. When you are not spraying the Torch Booster automatically goes into recirculation mode. It is designed to be left running for short periods when the spray gun is not being used such as during breaks, lunch or while setting up the next spray job. It does not require operator attention as the spray gun is turned on and off.

TB-HVOF cabinet measures 50 1/2”W x 33”D x 32”T / 128 cm W x 84 cm D x 81 cm T and weighs 550 lb. In North America electrical requirements are 208V, 60Hz, 40 amp service; worldwide 230V, 50Hz, 40 amp service. Gas supply should be between ¼ to 5 psi / .017 to.33 bar and delivered in a 1 1/2” pipe which connects directly to the Torch Booster.

TB-HVOF Torch Booster connects to the building natural gas pipe with a 1 1/2" diameter pipe that reduces to 3/4" diameter at the Booster. One inlet is for gas supply < 5psi and a second for gas supply > 5 psi.
