Gas solenoid valves VGP for safeguarding and controlling the air and gas supply to gas burners and gas appliances. For use in gas control and safety systems in industrial and commercial heat generation, such as the foodstuffs and ceramics industries.
The gas solenoid valve VGP is closed when de-energized.
Opening: the applied AC voltage is rectified (the rectifier adapter must be installed for this) and generates a powerful magnetic field in the solenoid coil. The magnetic field attracts the iron core and lifts the valve plate from the valve seat, acting against the effective inlet pressure and the closing spring force. The gas solenoid valve VGP opens and the gas supply is released.
Closing: when the voltage is disconnected, the magnetic field collapses and within 1 s, the closing spring pushes the iron core with valve plate back onto the valve seat, assisted by the inlet pressure. The gas solenoid valve VGP closes and the gas supply is stopped.
