VALVEGYR®
Valve Proving System for
automatic Shutoff Valves
The LDU11... valve proving system is designed for use with shutoff valves in con-
nection with gas burners and gas appliances. In the event of inadmissible leakage,
the system prevents the burner from starting up.
The LDU11... system conforms to the requirements of EN1643 covering automatic
shutoff valves for use with gas burners and gas appliances to EN161.
The LDU11... and this Data Sheet are intended for use by OEMs which integrate the
valve proving system in their products.

  • Page 2 The LDU11... is designed for automatic gas valve proving (leakage test) based on the pressure proving principle. It is for use on gas-fired combustion plant with or without vent pipe to atmosphere. In the case of plants with no vent pipe where EN standards apply, the notes given in «Connection examples without vent pipe to atmosphere»...

  • Page 4 Life cycle LDU11... has a designed lifetime* of 250,000 burner startup cycles which, under normal operating conditions in heating mode, correspond to approx. 10 years of usage (starting from the production date given on the type field). This lifetime is based on the endurance tests specified in standard EN298 and the table containing the relevant test documenta- tion as published by the European Association of Component Manufacturers (Afecor) (www.afecor.org).

  • Page 7 Function During the first phase of the valve proving test called «Test1», atmospheric pressure must exist in the length of pipe between the valves to be tested. In plants with a vent pipe to atmosphere, atmospheric pressure is available if the valve proving test is made prior to or during the prepurge time.
  • Page 8 Program and lockout indicator In the event of lockout, the programming mechanism stops and thus the position indicator fitted to the spindle of the mechanism. The symbol that stops above the reading mark indicates the test phase during which lockout occurred and also gives the number of programming steps completed from the start of this test phase (1 step = 2.5 seconds).
