VMRNA valve is a reverse acting solenoid valve: when de-energized, the valve is open (N.O. normally open). The valves are made of aluminum alloy with connections from 3/4” or 1”½. Pipe connections meet group 2. Sealings are made of NBR-based rubber certified for use with air gas (EN 549). Suitable for use with air and non-aggressive gases included in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd families (EN 437).
Special versions for aggressive gases (e.g. biogas). Qualified for continuous service (100% ED). Provided with the G1/4 pressure gauge on two sides in the inlet chamber to connect manometers, pressure switches, or other gas equipment. Provided with G1/8 connection to fit an open position indicator switch (see PCS datasheet – This device shall be ordered separately). VMRNA valve can be integrated with the Elektrogas VMM valve, resulting in a very compact system.
Functioning and application
The VMRNA type valve is a vent valve for the relief line. When it is de-energized, the spring pushes on the magnetic core and the disc is open, hence gas can flow to the relief line. This device is usually integrated with the burning system: when the system is de-energized, upstream safety shut off valves are closed, while the vent valve is open, so that fuel gas inside the pipe can be discharged in a safe area.
In case of leakages of shut off valves, gas goes to the relief line in a safe condition. When the system is powered, the vent valve closes while the main shut off valves open, hence fuel can flow to the burner.
