H17 Series Automatic Shutoff
Pilot Gas Valve
The H17 Series automatic pilot valves provide safe lighting and complete
shutoff in the event that the flame heating the thermocouple is
extinguished. They are designed for standing pilot applications and can be
used with natural gas and Liquefied Petroleum (LP) gas. Depressing the
reset button allows gas to flow to both the pilot and main burner.
Applications include room heaters, infrared heaters, stand-alone portable
heaters, catalytic heaters, refrigerators, and similar applications.
H17 models are also available with a higher ambient temperature, up to a
maximum of 300°F (149°C), for use on commercial ovens, broilers, and other
The H17 Series valves provide complete shutoff in the event that the flame
heating the thermocouple is extinguished. They are suitable for use with
natural gas, LP gas, or LP gas-air mixtures at pressures up to 0.5 psi (35
mbar). The H17 is suitable for operation over a temperature range of -40
to 150°F (-40 to 66°C) for standard models. High temperature models are
suitable for operation over a temperature range of -40 to 300°F (-40 to
H17 valves are compact, straight-through aluminum valves with pipe sizes
from 1/8 to 1/2 inch. H17 valves do not have a flow interrupter,
therefore, gas flows to both the main burner and pilot burner (if used)
when the reset button is depressed. Where a pilot is not used, the pilot
outlet is omitted and the tip of the thermocouple is inserted directly in
the main burner flame.
