Raising the gas pressure level is the key benefit when using a gas booster, a cost-effective and reliable way of increasing constant pressure. Using the APS system, it’s possible to introduce more control, flexibility and efficiency into an already robust solution. The Automatic Pressure Setpoint (APS) system allows the user to set the specific outlet pressure that is needed at any given time. This allows the system to intelligently lower the pressure when demand is reduced during quiet periods. In addition to consistent control of outlet pressure, the system reduces consumption of electricity and gas based on usage and the APS settings. For example, a booster that needs to provide high pressure for a short period every day will greatly benefit from an APS system’s energy savings. As the APS system utilises inverter control, it is possible to power on and off using a “soft-start” setting. This slows the unit to power up using a lower voltage and slowly ramp up over a user adjustable time frame, reducing shock and load on the motor and bearings. Over time, this can contribute to an increased lifespan for components and lower the risk of failure. The APS System is compatible with the current range of Secomak Boosters and comes with an optional auto-changeover system and integrated into one wall mountable control box. The APS System is suitable for single stream and duty standby/parallel systems, and with any building management system. Secomak Gas Boosters are built to exceed British Standard BS 8487:2007, which recommends that drive belts are changed every year and bearing assemblies every five years.
