The Stansted Gas Booster model P-TC-FPG10165 system has been developed for use by NATO forces. Its special features broaden its use to a large range of military & civil applications where gas transfer is required. Primarily for oxygen transfer applications with HAPLESS and AMOS oxygen charging systems; its high specification and special features broaden its applications to a large range of military and civil applications where gas transfer is required. System may be used with oxygen, air, argon, helium, nitrox and heliox mixes.
Electrically driven from a single phase electric motor the system can be supplied to suit most world-wide electrical supplies.
The system is supplied in a robust lightweight fabricated aluminum support frame. The frame is designed to be easily man handled and carried with pull-out portage handles. Closed for transportation the covers protect the system from handling accidents. For operation the system panels fold out allowing access to the control panel and pressure connections. The fold out panel for control access includes a set of basic instructions for operating procedures. The charging access panel folds out to allow access to inlet and outlet charging connectors, a secondary fold out panel also includes a bottle charging rack and distribution manifold suitable for supporting up to six typical 3l cylinders. Alternative charging racks and manifolds can be offered to suit individual applications. The integral tool chest allows storage of hoses, tools and connectors.
System incorporates integral air circulation cooling flow for cooling the gas booster and bottles on the charging rack. Cooling air is filtered through large panel filters resistant to coarse sand ingress. The system includes inbuilt sensing to detect filter blockage. Filters can be simply removed and cleaned.
System is suitable for operation in ambient conditions from -10°C to +50°C. For low temperature operation the system incorporates low temperature protection with pre-start crankcase heating to ensure system lubricants are in operating temperature range.
Based on the proven Stansted TC10C-2312-1412-OX gas booster the system is robust and reliable. Should it be required primary in field service is accomplished through service exchange assemblies which allow operators to simply, quickly and safely rectify the majority of service faults.
