If your shop uses between 25 and 40 bench torches, or has 2 or more casting torches,
then TB-250 Torch Booster is the right G-TEC system.
If you have between 4- to 75 bench torches or up to 4 large casting torches then
you should choose the TB-500 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.
TB-250 and TB-500 systems boost utility natural gas to 45 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 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 Torch Boosters require 208V single phase 30 amp electrical service and a 1 1/2”
utility natural gas supply pipe.
