HIGH PRESSURE GAS TRAIN Components | Industrial Products

A Typical Fuel Train or High Pressure Gas Train has several components, each with a specific purpose which is briefly explained below:

  • Manual shut-off valve (MSOV) – the purpose of this valve is to shut off the fuel supply so that maintenance or replacement of the fuel train may be done.
  • Gas pressure regulator (PRV) – its purpose is to maintain the fuel at a constant pressure as recommended by the burner manufacturer.
  • Gas Filter – the function is to prevent foreign particle and extraneous impurities entering Gas Pressure Regulator.
  • Low pressure gas switch – senses a low pressure in the range where the burner cannot properly operate. This switch must be equipped with safety lock-out requiring manual reset. This tells the operator to check the gas pressure, since the burner will not try to restart until the switch is reset.
  • Safety shut-off valve (SSOV) – the first of two valves in series that automatically opens and shuts off the fuel supply to the burner. On burners above 1200 KW, the valve closing time is one (1) second maximum. ( Refer Multiblock).
  • Vent valve – this is normally an open valve. It energizes to close. Whenever the SSOV’s are closed, the vent valve is open, so if any gas is leaking past the first SSOV (5), it will vent this gas to the atmosphere, so that even if the second SSOV (7) may leak, no gas will go past this valve since there is no pressure differential across the SSOV
  • Safety shut-off valve (SSOV) – the second of two valves in series, automatically opens and shuts off the fuel supply to the burner. On burners above 1200 KW, the valve closing time is one (1) second maximum. This SSOV in conjunction with the first SSOV (5) and the vent valve (6) comprise the double block and bleed arrangement and ensure no gas leakage into the combustion chamber during burner shutdown. ( Refer Multiblock)
  • High gas pressure switch – the purpose of this safety device is to sense a high gas pressure and shut down the burner before an unsafe condition can occur. The high pressure is usually due to failure of the gas regulator. This switch must be equipped with a safety lock-out requiring manual reset. This tells the operator that the gas regulator failed since the burner will not restart until the switch is reset. ( Refer Multiblock)
  • Manual shut-off valve (MSOV) – the purpose of this valve is to allow testing of all components of the fuel train under actual operating fuel pressure without firing the main burner. This testing is done after any maintenance or extended shut down to ensure all components are working properly prior to actually firing the main burner.
  • Firing rate valve – valve equipped with a modulating motor controlled by boiler pressure (steam) or temperature (hot water) and regulates the amount of fuel to he burner and through linkages, controls the air damper (like the cruise control on a car), should be located as near the burner as possible.
  • Test valves – the purpose of these valves is to allow testing of the SSOVs for leakage. This test is required by ASME CSD-l and NFPA 8501 to be done on a monthly basis.
  • Drip leg – the purpose of this piping arrangement is to trap any debris or water which may accumulate in the gas piping to prevent fouling of the fuel train components including burner orifices.

  • Manufacturers also follow the latest regulations and safety standards as per the requirements therefore, MULTIBLOCK or compact valve group used as low pressure gas train with maximum 300 to 500 mbar permissible inlet pressure having all necessary components inbuilt including filter, regulator and also provide many other connection port for auto safety relief, pressure switch max and test point etc.

Industrial Combustion Burner: Basics of "Industrial Burner"

Industrial Engineering involves creating products that maximize function, value, and appearance for professional manufacturers and consumers. Gas burner, Oil burner, or Coal burner is relate to a mechanical device that burns a gas or liquid fuel in a controlled manner. An oil burner (engine) is a steam engine that uses oil as its fuel. Gas burner , a piece of metal fitted to the end of a gas pipe, with one or more small holes so arranged as to spread out the flame. An oil burner is a part that join to an oil furnace, water heater, or boiler. A Low NOx burner is a type of burner that is typically used in utility boilers to produce steam and electricity. The burner is simply a hollow metal disk with holes punctured through its perimeter. And a gas pilot light or electric pilot sits to one side of the burner and sends a small flame or spark to ignite the oxygen-gas mixture as it flows through the holes in the burner. Industrial Gas burner is a device to generate a flame to heat up produ


Thermic Fluid Heater is most popular in almost every industries and it is being used for various heating applications due to unique advantage over other heating systems like steam heating, electrical heating, direct firing, air heating etc., because of the following exceptional advantages:- Very low working pressure and safe from explosion hazards. Heat transfer medium or working fluid remains in liquid phase throughout and higher overall heat transfer. Greater efficiency of heat utilization , superior fuel-saving possibility, and better return on investment for the industry. No botheration continuous water treatment for feed water in case of steam boiler. No problem of scale deposition on heating surface. New generation thermic fluids with excellent properties are available in the market Better heat transfer coefficient, higher thermal stability, and long-life cycle Exemption from Indian Boiler Regulations Act and related formalities Thus, many unique advantages when selecting the the
