Solenoid Valves for Gas
Models VG, VG..OCS,VGP
  • For tight shutoff of fuel gases and air on industrial and commercial applications
  • VG — damper for speed control
  • VG. .OCS — no damper for speed control
  • VGP — no damper for speed control
  • Designed for continuous on-off cycling
  • Life expectancy of 2 million cycles
  • DC system prevents overheating of solenoid coil, and high inrush current
  • Proof of closure, position indication, and flow adjustment available
  • Low maintenance
  • CE certified models available

Application

VG and VGP solenoid valves are normally closed solenoid-operated valves for on/off
control of natural gas, LP, clean biogas and air flow. They are widely used as gas safety
shut-off valves for industrial and commercial combustion systems.

Materials of Construction


VG solenoid valves have pressure die-cast aluminum bodies and solenoid housings
with nitrile rubber 0-ring seals and valve disc facings. VG 15 through VG 40/32 sizes
have 1/4 NPT pressure taps on both sides of the valve outlet, built-in brass mesh
strainers and polyacetate flow limiting orifices. VG 40 through VG 100 sizes have ¼
NPT pressure taps on both sides of the valve inlet and outlet, built-in stainless steel
strainers and galvanized steel flow limiting orifices.
Electrical terminal boxes have two (2) ½” NPT connections and two (2) grounding
screws. Terminals will accept a maximum wire gauge of #14.
VGP solenoid valves have pressure die-cast aluminum bodies with nitrile/viton rubber
0-ring seals and valve disc facings. VGP solenoid valves come with DIN plug
connector.

Power Consumption at 120 Vac, VA or watts
A full wave rectifier located in the terminal box converts incoming AC current to DC.
Power consumption is the same on start-up and during continuous operation.
