Gas Booster Systems

Action Blower & Equipment Gas Booster Systems provide a complete turnkey solution for applications in which the available gas pressure is not adequate to meet the required demand.

Our Gas Booster Systems utilize a gas tight blower driven by an inverter duty electric motor. The systems use a pressure indicator to sense the gas pressure being delivered. Based on the sensed pressure, a variable frequency drive adjusts the speed of the motor to deliver the required amount of gas.

Our gas boosters are available with 3 different types of blowers:

  • The GT1400 – single stage centrifugal, low pressure (up to 12.6” WC boost), UL listed
  • Regenerative – (model RGB) medium pressure
  • Positive displacement – (model PDGB) medium/high pressure

The principle of operation is the same for all types of blower systems.

Additional Information

  • Advantages Include
    • Complete turnkey solution - simply connect gas to inlet and discharge and connect electrical input power.
    • Low maintenance – PD blower is oil lubricated, GT1400 and regenerative blowers require no lubrication.
    • Low energy consumption - blower only runs as required to meet demand.
  • Model RGB Gas Booster Systems Approved by the Massachusetts Board of Plumbers and Gas Fitters
  • Contact us for assistance in determining the proper size and configuration of system that will best meet your needs. We have many years of experience in designing systems for many different types of applications.
  • Duplex and lead-lag systems are available as well as systems with remotely located control panels and many other options.
