Low Pressure Differential ValvesLarge ports enable high BTU gas flow in low pressure differential applications.
Low Gas Pressure Differential Valves
One of the largest applications for solenoid valves involves controlling the flow of gasses. From simple on/off burners in gas barabcue grills to the mixing of multiple gasses through a manifold system in a medical devices or labratory equipment, 2-way and 3-way solenoid valves provide percise, reilable and consistant performance when directing the flow gas in a wide range of applications and environments. Below a few specific applications of how made-to-order engineered solenoid valves from Solutions Solutions, Inc improved the function or performance product.
Some gas fixtures or products need to generate high BTUs while having a low pressure differential. To create high BTU (British Thermal Unit) output while maintaining a low pressure differential, requires a solenoid valve with specific features to optimize performance under these conditions.
High Flow Capacity
A solenoid valve with a high flow capacity that can handle the required volume of fluid or gas to achieve the desired BTU output. Valves with larger orifices and flow paths can accommodate higher flow rates, allowing for increased BTU generation.
Low Pressure Differential Operation
Design the valve to operate efficiently with low pressure differentials. Some valves are engineered to work effectively even at low pressure conditions, reducing the energy required to open and close the valve.
Direct-acting solenoid valves are suited for low pressure differential applications. They can operate with minimal pressure requirements, making them effective in generating high BTU output even with limited pressure.
Normally Open Configuration
For high BTU output, consider a normally open solenoid valve. This type of valve remains open when de-energized, allowing fluid or gas to flow freely through the system. When energized, the valve will close, stopping the flow.
High Temperature Rating
Many of these types of products will operate in a high temperature environment. Ensure the solenoid valve has a high-temperature rating to handle the elevated temperatures associated with high BTU generation. Valves with temperature-resistant materials can withstand the heat without compromising performance.
Low Leakage Rate
The valve must be designed with low leakage to prevent wastage of fluid or gas, especially when operating with a low-pressure differential. Low leakage ensures that the majority of the fluid or gas is effectively used for BTU generation.
By incorporating these features in a solenoid valve, you can create a high BTU output even with a low pressure differential, optimizing the performance and energy efficiency of your system. It's essential to design the solenoid valve to your specific application requirements to achieve the desired BTU output while maintaining low pressure differential conditions.
