Delta-Elektrogas RAGH Gas ratio regulators

Delta-Elektrogas RAGH Gas ratio regulators have been designed for burners with preheated air. It is able to maintain a constant ratio between air and gas flow during the different phases of burner work. In a regenerative or recuperative burner with the same air inlet pressure, the airflow changes during the burner’s working and aging. Airflow depends on air preheating grade and the presence of dirt on the recuperator or regenerator. RAGH is able to supply a gas pressure proportional to Air differential pressure, which is directly linked with airflow.

1961 – Elettromeccanica DELTA s.p.a. was founded in Arcade (TV) with the aim of designing and manufacturing oil burners with mechanical atomization. 2011 – Elektrogas range celebrates 30 years in the market, with a product portfolio that now includes control valves, filters, gas regulators, servomotors, and combustion controllers. Today – Elettromeccanica DELTA, with its brands Elektrogas and Deltapumps, is a proud manufacturer of safety and control products for gas firing systems and fuel oil appliances, successfully installed in more than 60 countries in the world.

Features

The regulators are made of aluminum alloy die-cast, with a range for inlet/outlet connections
from 1/2” up to 2”.
Gas inlet pressure up to 500 mbar, air control differential pressure up to 35 mbar.
They are equipped with an adjustable spring, so that gas outlet pressure is equal to air control
differential pressure, with a ratio 1:4 and an adjustable offset of +/-3mbar.
RAGH regulators can be used also with modulating burner with preheating, they have been
designed for a flow regulation range equal to 4:1. Design is optimized to generate low pressure
drop.
The controls are equipped with inlet pressure compensating diaphragm for precise regulation
A metallic mesh filter protects the regulator seat from dirt contamination (filtration grade <1mm).
The impulse line is integrated inside the regulator. Special versions with external impulse line
are available on request.
Provided with pressure test points in gas inlet, outlet and air control chamber to connect
manometers, pressure switches or other equipments. On request pressure test points can be
provided with nipples Ø9 for fast connection of measuring instruments.
It is possible to provide RAGH with a bypass adjustable on-site. Bypass is useful in low fire state
when a constant low gas flow is necessary.
Pipe connections meet group 2.
Suitable for use with non-aggressive gases included in the 1, 2 and 3 families (EN 437).
Special versions for aggressive gases (e.g. biogas).
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.
Regulators are 100% tested and fully warranted.

Applications

In fig. 1 it is described the working of
regeneratives burners: when a burner
ignites the heat exchanger is very hot, so air
warms, expands and its flow is lower.
During burner working, heat exchanger
cools and air flow increase.

In fig. 2 it is sketched a recuperative burner: when it ignites the
recuperator is cold, so air flow is higher, after some time recuperator
warms, air warms and its flow decrease. If recuperative burner are
used with pulse firing control, air flow is always changing, so a correct
gas flow is very important for an efficient combustion.
Furthermore air flow can change due to dirty accumulation on heat
exchanger: dirty reduce heat exchange and reduce air flow.

In RAGH outlet gas pressure pushes gas
diaphragm and air differential pushes the two sides
of air diaphragm. The two diaphragm are coupled
so a change in air differential pressure results in a
change of gas outlet pressure.
Figure 4 shows an example of installation in
combination with other Elektrogas devices.
