Torch Booster Systems For Glass Lampworking
TB-15 Torch Booster

Torch Boosters are quiet and can be placed

right next to your workspace

What is the right Torch Booster for my studio?

If you use a minor torch such as the Nortel Minor, Mega Minor, Cricket, Bobcat, Lynx, Piranha, Alpha, Cheetah, Scorpion or Mini CC then the TB-15 Torch Booster is the right system for you. If your plans include a larger torch in the future then consider a TB-30 or larger G-TEC system now.


How does a Torch Booster work?

TB-15 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.


TB-15 boosts utility natural gas to 25 psi then you use a regulator to lower pressure to exactly where you want it. Most torches are designed to work at 5 psi but with a TB-15 you can set pressure anywhere between 1 to 25 psi.


How big is a TB-15 Torch Booster?

TB-15 is compact; 12 “ wide, 12” tall and 16” deep and it weighs about 48 lbs.


TB-15 Torch Booster uses 120V 15 amp electrical power and connects to a 1/2” low pressure utility natural gas pipe.

TB-250 / TB-500 Torch Boosters For Large Studios And Big Torches

Colleges, museums, art centers and similar large facilities may have many torches

for classes or open torch time. Some glass artists use powerful torches that

require a lot of fuel gas such as a GTT Delta Cobra, Viper, Carlisle CC+ +

and similar torches.


More information about using high pressure natural gas in colleges, schools

and similar environments.


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 the right setting for your torch.


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 require 208V single phase 30 amp electrical service.

Both systems require a 1 1/2” utility natural gas supply pipe.
