Gas regulations state that gas pressure to the gas booster must not fall below 10 millibar. Some installations are known to experience issues with transient drops in pressure, often caused by the slow reaction time of a gas meter. In such cases, Secomak recommend a Gas Reservoir. It is simple to install and should solve the main issues for gas booster tripping. The Gas Reservoir for the Secomak Model 576 Gas Booster is fitted with:
- 1 x 1/2" BSP female socket side connection for the Low Pressure cut off switch, c/w compression fittings and sensing tube
- A Gas Reservoir is of welded construction prefabricated from BS1387 mild steel tube with weld cap ends
- 1 x vertical 3/4" BSP female socket top connection for customers to extend and connect to mains gas service on inlet side of booster
- All Gas Reservoirs are strengthened tightness tested prior to dispatch and painted with one coat of red oxide primer paint.
Installation: The Gas Reservoir inlet should be connected directly to gas service and should not be fitted with isolating valves.
It is recommended that the gas reservoir branch connection is installed downstream of the main booster inlet isolating valve, prior to the flanged inlet connection on the gas booster.
