Continental Controls Corp is releasing a fuel valve targeting OEM engine manufacturers, engine control companies, and users and operators of gas engines with old or slow fuel valves. The GV1 gas valve will operate as a variable pressure controller monitoring and controlling the gas injection pressure to either the carburetor or mixing venturi of the engine.
The valve will respond within 30ms to a change in downstream pressure, which enables the valve to react to load changes much more quickly than a traditional AFR valve that only reacts to changes in the oxygen feedback from the engines exhaust.
The GV1 will operate both with either naturally aspirated gas engines or, by adding a turbo balance line, with turbocharged engines. The valve can control many types of gaseous fuels such as natural gas, field gas, propane, or various bio-fuels or land fill gasses. It is designed for gas engines from 25bhp to 500bhp.
