The combination of VGD4/VRD4 double gas valve and SKPx5 actuator has a design
Burner startup cycles
when using gases according to EN 437 (or DVGW specification G260).
This is based on the endurance tests specified in the standard EN 161.
A summary of the conditions has been published by the European Control
Manufacturers Association (Afecor) (www.afecor.org).
The designed lifetime is based on the use of a VGD4/VRD4 double gas valve and an
SKPx5 actuator according to the manufacturer's data sheet. After reaching the
designed lifetime in terms of the number of burner startup cycles, or after the
corresponding usage time, the VGD4/VRD4 double gas valve and SKPx5 actuator
must be checked and/or replaced by authorized personnel.
The criteria set out in EN 161 / EN 13611 are applicable when testing the tightness.
This test can be omitted if a valve proving system is in place.
* The designed lifetime is not the warranty time specified in the Terms of Delivery.
