i doubt it, too. im building a hybrid propane/electric brewstand, and i'm just trying to take safety measures.
anyway, i'll get back to my question at hand:
i have two asco valves. i would like to have a pilot safety thing of some sort. i don't need an ignitor or any fancy equipment - just a way of sensing the lack of pilot flame and shutting down power to the valve - can't be too difficult, right?
to quote bittercreek:
I am using:
Asco 8210g075 valves with 24VAC coils http://www.ascovalve.com/Common/PDFF...ct/8210_NC.pdf
Honeywell S87B1008 ignition modules DIRECT SPARK IGNITION SINGLE ROD, ANY VALVE WITH ALARM TERMINAL. 6 SEC. LOCKOUT
Honeywell Q345A1321 pilot assemblys INTERMITTENT PILOT BURNER WITH K TIP. NTERMITTENT PILOT BURNER, SEC. AERATED. TRADELINE, B BRACKET, .018 ORIFICE, 1/4 IN. FITTING, K TIP REPLACES- GEMLINE: 1D284
Lp Orifices for pilot Honeywell 390686-25 .012 ORIFICE
Honeywell AT140A1000 Transformers 24 Vac at 40 VA
seems like he found a way to do exactly what i'm asking about.
i would really appreciate anyone's help on this, and i'm sure that i can help them in return with something theyre working on.
