Education You Can Build On White-Rodgers Gas Furnace Valves
When To Replace A Gas Valve? The valve should be replaced if any of the following occur: –The outlet pressure remains above the set point or fluctuates NOTE: The manifold regulation should stabilize after about 20 seconds and stay within +/- 10% of the set pressure setting –The regulation setting cannot be adjusted –The valve will not open to allow main gas flow –The gas valve has been subjected to water flooding NOTE: When servicing a gas furnace it is important that the inlet and the outlet pressures be checked with an accurate pressure gauge –You cannot visually look at a main burner flame to determine if the pressures are within the manufacturers specifications –Always check the gas valve with a water and soap bubble solution after servicing to ensure there are no leaks
QuestionsOptions What is the Ignition Source? Direct Burner Ignition Direct Spark Ignition Hot Surface Ignition Proven Pilot / Intermittent Pilot Standing Pilot What is the Furnace Input / Valve Rating? Look at the rating plate on the furnace NOTE: All White-Rodgers Universal Gas Valves come with Nat. to L.P regulator spring conversion kit and reducing bushings for adapting to pipe size What are the opening characteristics? Opening Curve Fast/Standard Open or Slow Stages Single Stage or 2 Stage Selection Criteria
Application by Ignition Source Direct Burner Ignition Proven / Intermittent Pilot Standing / Continuous Pilot Hot Surface Ignition (HSI) Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) W-R Valve36H or 36J 36H36C Ignition Source Resistive element that heats up to light the gas with direct or indirect flame sensor Ground electrode, with spark electrode flame sensor Pilot burner to ground, with a spark electrode and flame sensor A traditional pilot burner with a thermocouple - no spark electrode or flame sensor Usage Majority of current furnaces Selected applications Mostly rooftop applications No longer used in OEM production
Rated Valve Capacity W-R Valve Pipe Size Range of Regulation KBTU/HR (Min to Max) N.G.L.P. 36J ½ x ½40 to to H ½ x ¾30 to to 648 ¾ x ¾50 to to C ½ x ¾30 to to 469 ¾ x ¾50 to to 648 Pressure Drop : Pressure differential is the agency rated amount of gas (BTUs) that can pass through the gas valve based on inlet and outlet pipe size. Range of Regulation : Is the minimum and maximum BTU/Hr capacity of the valve to maintain regulation pressure settings.
