The AGV10 Fuel Metering Valve was designed to meter fuel for turbines in the horsepower range of approximately 850HP to 5000HP. The intelligent fuel valve includes a built-in flow meter for flow measurement and condition monitoring.
By providing an internal mass flow calculation, the valve is able to ensure accurate fuel flow even with changes in supply or backpressure or changes in ambient air temperature.
Light off can be achieved at a pre-determined flow, which is ideal for a specific turbine not by ramping start flow through a range as is the normal practice with position-based fuel valves.
The flow-through design allows the AGV 10 to tolerate extremely dirty gas. If the pilot stage gas is filtered, the valve can even tolerate a substantial amount of liquids in the gas.
By choosing the optional embedded acceleration control, the valve can work with either PLC or even with older analogue control systems such as the CCC Black Boxes.
The AGV valves significantly simplify on-skid wiring and gas plumbing and the 24vdc 1 amp requirement will not need a new high-voltage power supply.
The Rs-485 serial port provides data via the modbus interface such as fuel supply pressure, differential pressure, engine manifold pressure, measured fuel flow and various other on-board information available for control and diagnostics.
