DTB10C - Type 2
Variations of the Type2 are by far the most popular system supplied. At the stage of placing and order you will have a good understanding of how the booster works and how it will be integrated into your planned project. The start of the system design will be to determine if you are best suited to a top or front mounted control panel. Gas inlet and outlets can be positioned to suit the installation. It is commonplace when deciding on the first level of automation to opt for the OUTLET control gauge. This is a mechanical/electrical device which can be user set to switch off at the desired set-point after manual activation. The Standard frame into which the Type 1 is then mounted provides us with bulkhead attachment for gas Inlet/Outlet points. The Inlet pressure regulator can be mounted internally and the gas bypass can be built in which allows for the initial decanting of gas to be balanced through the system prior to starting the booster. Overall this provides a tidy one hose in, one hose out and power chord arrangement. As no regular maintenance is required the system can be stowed away leaving only the front access for the control panel. Another level of safety automation is the fitting of an Inlet control gauge which is factory set to switch off at the minimum inlet pressure so you are protected against running it out of gas. The pump assembly is supplied with powder coated machine covers to prevent hand injury, in line with BS & CE legislation. Technical support is provided out of hours 7 days per week.
