Maxitrol and Mertik Maxitrol have recently developed a couple of interesting new products for gas appliances: the new GV30C mechanical thermostat and the GV30 pressure switch. Both of these products were well received at the recent HOST Milano, the world’s largest and most consequential trade fair dedicated to the cooking equipment, food, and coffee industries.
The GV30C mechanical thermostat is designed to control the temperature in a gas burning appliance. When combined with a GV30 multifunctional control, two main burners can be operated independently with a single pilot burner.
The GV30 pressure switch closes an electrical contact when the gas reaches a set pressure. When used on the main gas or pilot gas outlet, the GV30 pressure switch and an LED will show whether the burner is on or off. On oil pumps, for example, a normally closed relay can be wired in parallel with an LED (e.g. If pilot gas is flowing, the relay will interrupt the power supply to the pump).
