Ratio Regulator FAQ

What is a ratio regulator? You might be more familiar with another name. These are sometimes called cross-connected regulators, proportional regulators, or zero governors. Or any mix of those words, like proportional governor. Each of these names can give us an idea of what the device does. When working with combustion, you want a specific Read More

FAQ: Gas Filters

A gas filter is installed upstream of all other components on an industrial combustion system. It’s a simple item with a big job. What does a gas filter do? A gas filter is commonly provided with a cast aluminum housing, and the filtration is performed by the media inside. Depending on your application and the Read More

Elektrogas VMRNA Automatic Vent Valve

The Elektrogas VMRNA is a normally-open vent valve for industrial combustion systems. Because the valve is open when de-energized, VMRNA can be thought of as the opposite of a safety shut-off valve (closed when de-energized). How they work A reverse-acting solenoid valve, VMRNA is normally open. That means you must apply power to close the Read More

How to: Attach S Actuators to VF Valves

It’s easy to mate an Elektrogas S actuator with a VF butterfly valve. Here’s how it’s done: Identifying the Parts To begin, let’s gather and identify the necessary parts. S actuators ship with the parts shown above. 1) The solenoid actuator 2) A connection ring3) Two screws4) A cork gasket Butterfly valve VF ships alone. Read More

FAQ: What’s an Air Valve?

The term “air valve” can refer to several distinct pieces of equipment. Combustion requires heat, fuel, and oxygen, and we usually see oxygen provided as a component of ambient air (the air we breathe). The type and quantity of air valves on a system is determined by the application and the control scheme. We might Read More

FAQ: What Does an Actuator Do?

What does an actuator do? An actuator drives a valve, causing it to move toward the open or closed positions. Actuators are present in all automatic valves, and can take the form of a motor (servo, pneumatic, hydraulic, etc), a solenoid, or something else. With a manual valve, your hand is the actuator. Actuators operate Read More

Rotating a DIN Plug

If you’ve never worked with plug-and-socket electrical connections, you might have a lot of questions the first time you see one. What’s the torque spec. for tightening the plug? How important is the gasket? How do I reorient the direction of the plug? Our latest video tackles the last question. Reorienting the socket is very Read More

Elektrogas Solenoid Air Valves

Elektrogas VRA, VLA, and VTA are a series of solenoid actuated valves used to control cold combustion air. Thanks to their expert design, they’re capable of continuous service, and are ideal for on/off or high/low control of combustion air in industrial gas burners. Function Elektrogas air valves are normally closed. When powered, the valve opens Read More

Elektrogas LMV Linear Control Valve

The Elektrogas LMV series are control valves for linear adjustment of gas or air flow in combustion systems. If you need more precise flow control than you can get from a butterfly valve, then you need a linear flow control valve like the Elektrogas LMV. Servomotors drive LMV valves. The Elektrogas MZ3 servomotor provides 3-point Read More

Elektrogas SSOV Spare Parts

Are spare parts available for Elektrogas safety shut-off valves (SSOVs)? Absolutely! Don’t scrap that valve just yet. We stock a full range of spare parts for Elektrogas SSOVs, so please check with us first. We’ve compiled a list of the most common spares. Have a look! Dampeners The VML is a slow opening SSOV. The Read More
