Duty Standby

When high pressure gas supply is critical and downtime is not an option, ensure constant supply with a Duty Standby System.


Secomak Gas Boosters are installed at many different locations where it is critical that gas supply is constant, including hotels, hospitals and schools.

A single Gas Booster may be able to reach the desired pressure, however routine maintenance will still require that the booster pump is powered down periodically whilst a belt or bearing assembly is replaced.

If supply of boosted gas is critical to your application, then the Duty Standby System is the solution of choice.

The Duty Standby System eliminates downtime. Consisting of two (Duplex) Secomak Gas Boosters, these alternate automatically every 7 days. This allows even wear and tear on the bearings and drives on both units across their lifespan. When maintenance is required, one booster will operate whilst the other is powered down, maintaining a constant, reliable supply.

The Duty Standby kit also includes a separate wall-mounted control panel with 7-day switchover timer, allowing control of both Gas Boosters, as well as the status of both boosters from a single location. Also included are flexibles, anti-vibration mounts, flanges, non-return valves and connection leads.

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.
