Gas Fireplace Valve Set
The Customer needed a fast-to-market solution for adjusting the flame intensity on their residential gas fireplace models. Their existing overseas supplier suddenly filed for bankruptcy, leaving them without a source for a custom assembly that was used in most of their products.
KDI developed a safe, reliable and cost effective flame intensifying valve set – and in only 10 days, produced prototypes for testing and design validation. Within 30 days, KDI was building production quantities – keeping the customer’s production lines up and running.
- Designed custom machined manifold with integrated seat valve
- Developed a battery-operated magnetic latching valve
- Eliminated the need for a constant electrical power source
- Increased the flame ratio 3:1
- Developed custom leak test equipment
- Provided manufacturing and 100% testing of assemblies
