DN20 … DN80
The VMM type valve is a combination of two solenoid valves in an only compact and versatile
This type of device is suitable for air or gas blocking and releasing controls (with one or two
stages operation), required in gas power burners, atmospheric gas boiler, industrial kilns and
others gas consuming appliances.
The valves are made of aluminum alloy die-cast, with a range for inlet/outlet connections from
DN20 (3/4”) up to DN80 (3”).
Sealings are made of NBR-based rubber certified for use with gas (EN 549).
Pipe connections meet group 2 and backpressure sealing is compliant with class A, according
to EN161 requirements.
A third valve with capacity of DN15 or DN25 can be fitted to by-pass the second one and have a
low fire stage or a second outlet for pilot burner (pilot execution).
Suitable for use with air and non-aggressive gases included in the 1, 2 and 3 families (EN 437).
Special versions for aggressive gases.
The whole range can be provided in Ex-proof execution, for use in Zones 2 and 22, according to
2014/34/EU Directive (ATEX).
The valve is open only when energized: if, for any reason, power supply goes down, the valve
closes immediately (intrinsic safe).
Suitable for heavy-duty cycle operation and qualified for continuous service (100% ED).
Equipped with flow rate adjustment.
An incorporated fine mesh filter protects the valve seat and disc as well as downstream
components and prevents dirty contamination.
Provided with bilateral pressure ports on two sides in all pressure chambers, to connect
manometers, pressure switches, leakage tester or other gas equipments.
The coils are provided with terminal box or with ISO 4400 plug. Both systems are provided with
suitable cable gland to avoid water and dirty contamination.
The normally open vent valve VMRNA can be integrated in VMM from 1”¼ to 3”; dimensions
and piping are the same of third pilot valve. See VMRNA datasheet for other details.
All components are designed to withstand any mechanical, chemical and thermal condition
occurring during typical service. Effective impregnation and surface treatments have been used
to improve mechanical sturdiness, sealing and resistance to corrosion of the components.
Valves are 100% tested by computerized testing machineries and are fully warranted.
The VMM type valve is a safety shutting device using auxiliary power supply.
The first valve (A) is a fast opening safety solenoid valve. When it is de-energized, the spring
pushes on the seal disc, keeping the gas passage closed. Now, the inlet chamber is under the
gas line pressure, and it forces on the disc too, improving the seal.
When the coil is powered the valve opens rapidly, against the strength of the spring and gas
If the power supply is shut off, the valve rapidly closes, interrupting the gas flow.
Equally, the second valve (B) may be a fast opening or a slow opening solenoid valve to adjust
the gas flow, with a first adjustable fast stroke and a second adjustable slow stroke.
It is possible to connect a third by-pass valve (C), which works as low fire stage or to obtain a
second fast (slow) stroke or both.
