Zero-pressure gas regulator RMG 324 Application, properties, technical specifications

Applications • Zero pressure control for gas-engine / gas-furnace circuits • Sequential setpoint controls • Gases accor. to DVGW working instructions G 260 (3rd family of gases only in gaseous state), sewage gas, bio gas, landfill gas, mine gas and neutral, non-aggressive gases

Characteristics

3

• Very sensitive, precise control • Setpoint may be adjusted from external device • Compact design • Plug-in design for regulating assembly • Simple installation of regulating assembly • Double seat valve available with multiple apertures • High flow rates • Fitting position is horizontal with the spring dome DOWN – that way gravity controls max. underpressure • Measuring impulse connection easy to modify from outside (internally / externally) • Component for gas combustion devices according to gas appliances directive (GAD)

The purpose of the RMG 324 zero-pressure gas regulator unit is to maintain the outlet pressure of a gaseous medium at a reasonably constant level independent of any disturbance variables, such as changes in inlet and / or flow rate throughout the controlled system. The reference of the unit is adjustable between -3 and +3 mbar. The RMG 324 is composed of the main valve body on the one hand and a functional ‘controller’ unit on the other. The latter contains the actual double seat valve. Thanks to the double seat design, the final control element of the regulating assembly is in a state of equal pressure. There is a connecting bolt that can be removed so that the whole regulating assembly can be dismounted in one piece, while the main valve body stays in the regulating line. Maintenance is made much easier that way. Maintenance personnel may check the functional parts visually. If they find a defect, they can exchange the whole unit against a good one and take the defective one to the repair shop. The RMG 324 must be positively mounted with the diaphragm in a horizontal position and the setpoint adjuster DOWN. That way, the weight of the internal movable parts serves to set the max. underpressure. Using the setpoint adjuster (and setpoint spring), the reference value for the outlet pressure can be adjusted between -3 and +3 mbar. In addition to adjuster and spring, the outlet pressure to be set may also be adjusted with a second setpoint, pneumatically, from outside, via the vent line. That one will act in addition to the effect of the spring. The outlet pressure to be controlled is fed to the controller via the (internal or external) measuring line. The measuring diaphragm detects the actual outlet pressure and compares it to the target value provided by the setpoint spring. Whenever the comparison reveals a deviation, the valve stem will act directly on the valve sleeve, thus changing the flow rate and adjusting the outlet pressure to match the reference value again.
