Woodward’s GS16 gas control valve is electrically actuated for use on industrial and aeroderivative gas turbines that require gas fuel flows up to 30,000 lb/hr (13607 kg/hr). The valve assembly can be used for base turbines or in a multiple valve configuration for low emissions requirements.
The gas throttling section of the valve uses a self-cleaning, shear type of action that keeps the control port free of contamination that can inhibit optimal performance. Three control port sizes are available (1.0, 1.5, 2.0 in2) for optimized fuel flow in a variety of application scenarios. The GS16 gas valve is electrically actuated with an on-board driver and can accommodate fuel gas or ambient temperatures to 200°F (93°C).
The GS16 has the following key features:
- Highly accurate fuel flow metering
- On-board driver
- Gas flow shut-off in conformance with ANSI B16.104 Class III
- Digital and/or 4-20 mA analog signal interfaces
- Certified for use in Hazardous Locations
