Boosting Gas Pressure - Which Gas Booster Solution Is Right For You?
If you have a boiler, burner or CHP that needs an increase in pressure, a Gas Booster is a cost effective and reliable solution.
But with multiple Gas Booster packages available, what would be best for your application?

Gas Booster Package 


Secomak Package Gas Booster

A Standard Package Gas Booster

The original Secomak Solution. A standard Gas Booster increases the pressure (but not the volume) of the supplied gas in a way that is efficient and reliable. Secomak’s standard Gas Booster range is a simple and inexpensive way to boost pressure.
Secomak’s centrifugal blower technology is both powerful and compact, keeping the footprint of the Gas Booster small and allowing more installation options for gas contractors.
A gas booster runs at a constant speed, supplying maximum pressure at all times and standard maintenance applies to recommended British Standards 8487:2007.
 

APS Inverter System


Short for Automatic Pressure Setpoint, the APS Inverter driven gas booster, maintains a consistent outlet pressure at a requested setpoint.
Irrespective of the volume of gas, the APS controls ensure a constant outlet pressure. It is perfect for applications where the pressure must stay consistent and stable. If maximum performance is not needed then the system automatically reduces the speed of the gas booster, resulting in a reduction of energy consumption, reduced noise levels and less wear and tear on the booster’s components.
In addition, the APS Inverter System offers additional control functionality including a reduction in booster acceleration (ramp up) and deceleration times. This is often a necessity by gas suppliers when the boosters are installed on shared main supplies, helping to prevent low pressure warnings.


Duty Standby

Consisting of two identical Gas Boosters, the Duty Standby is ideal when reliability is critical such as:

Hospitals
Residential Homes
Hotels
Schools
Offices
Factories
Process Applications
General Heating & Ventilation



In a “Run and Standby” configuration, the system will automatically switch between the two boosters in the event of a fault, ensuring the boosted gas pressure supply is unaffected. The system will also alternate every seven days (customisable), ensuring that wear on the bearings and drives is spread between two machines. This means that maintenance never interrupts supply of gas, as the alternative booster is in operation.
Having two boosters also eliminates downtime for the same reason. Regular checks from the maintenance team ensures you will always have at least one operational Gas Booster.
The Duty Standby is also available as an APS Inverter System, with the advantages of both configurations.

 

Gas Sensor System

The safest solution for gas operations in more sensitive locations requiring lower noise levels and combined with the Acoustic Enclosure; a “Sniffer” sensor can detect potential gas leaks as soon as it recognises a change in the surrounding atmosphere.
Once detected, is uses Visual and Audible Pre-Alarm Warnings prior to an Automatic Safety Cut Off cuts all electrical supply to the system, reducing any potential threat.
The Gas Sensor System also uses an ATEX Rated Motor for maximum confidence in hazardous environments, such as gaseous, dusty or wet environments.
The Gas Sensor System is an APS Inverter System as standard and is also available in Duty Standby configuration for maximum safety, reliability and efficiency.

Secomak Celebrates 90 Years
Today on 16 September 2020, Secomak turns 90 years old. Since 1930, Secomak has been at the heart of British engineering, building and supplying Gas Boosters, producing Drying Machines for the Food and Beverage market and specialising in industrial Fan, Blower and Heater technology throughout. Focussing on Air Movement Technology, Secomak has diversified across these industries over the last 90 years.

Service Electric Company Ltd was born in 1930, shortly after our first fan and heater products were produced. Our fans and blowers are produced on site to this day.

In the 1940’s, Secomak designed and manufactured Air Raid Sirens to support the war effort.

In 1969, Secomak introduced the first ever commercial Gas Booster in conjunction with British Gas. Even today, we are the reference point across the construction industry.

Secomak Bottle Drying Through The Years
Today, Secomak are continuing to innovate. We recently rolled out the PowerWash and PowerClean UV machines, offering the full Wash, Dry & Sterilise solution for bottles, cans and jars.

In 2020 we launched the Gas Booster Model 588T, delivering the largest pressure lifts and volume of any Gas Booster that Secomak has ever produced.

PowerClean UV Can Sterilisation
Continuing to develop clean, dry and sterilised canning solutions, Secomak introduce the PowerClean UV machine to provide the ultimate in safe and confidence inspiring FoodBev products.


 
A high specification UVC sterilisation unit, the PowerClean UV is designed to sterilise packaging surfaces on high speed production lines.

The PowerClean UVC Sterilisation guarantees Log 4 inactivation rates of 99.99% for Bacillus Subtilis, a common food spoilage bacteria which lives and multiplies on can lids.

Sterilising the top of the can, the PowerClean uses high-intensity germicidal UVC emitters (pictured) to provide the maximum possible sterilisation.

Tamper element strips and lid labels are increasingly being offered across markets around the world. Consumer confidence is more important than ever in the current global environment, with an increased focus on hygiene from customers and stakeholders across the entire production and delivery process. The protection offered by a foil lid is significant, but only if bacterial inactivation has taken place prior to lid application.

As container and label change-overs require shorter make ready times, it's critical to sterilise quickly. The PowerClean UV can be specified in multiple modules as required to operate at speeds of up to 125,000 cans p/hr.
