FAQ: Slow Opening (Dampened) Solenoid Valves

Q: What are the advantages to using a slow opening valve? I notice that it is an option for the VAS solenoid valves for gas. Are slow opening valves used for air, also? A: Slow opening solenoid valves (or “dampened” solenoid valves) are available for both gas and air control. VAS solenoid valves are manufactured Read More

Pulse-Fire 101 – Pulse-fire Pitfalls

Through our discussions regarding equipment selection, you’ve learned that pulse-fire requires solenoid valves with extremely high operating cycles, burners that light reliably, and some method of impulse control. Through dozens of installations, our technicians have encountered and overcome a number of additional pitfalls, which can derail even the best planned system. Oversized Burners A common Read More

Pulse-Fire 101 – Pulse-fire Implementation

Now that you’re familiar with the history, ideas, and benefits of pulse-fire, it’s time to look at implementation. Knowing what you do about the demands that pulse-firing exacts upon components, you want to make sure to get the most for your money, so you don’t wind-up spending your fuel savings on replacements. ValVario Kromschröder’s valVario Read More

Pulse-Fire 101 – Pulse-fire Equipment

Not all combustion equipment is suitable for pulse-firing. Some of the key equipment requirements for a successful pulse-fire installation include: operating cycles in excess of one million, capability of three cycles per minute, and repeatability. Solenoid Valve Operating Cycles In traditional, modulating systems, gas solenoids open during start-up and remain open during furnace operation. Unless Read More

Pulse-Fire 101 – An Introduction to Pulse-fire Combustion Systems

Improve your bottom line, lower your operating costs, increase your product quality, and do your part to reduce greenhouse gases. How? By using pulse-fire to transform your industrial furnace! What is Pulse-fire? More than anything else, pulse-fire is a method of introducing heat into a gas-fired furnace. Traditional modulating systems use valves to control the Read More
