Buy Johnson Control Valves
With the Johnson Control Company being a leader in the heating control, ventilation control, air conditioning control and refrigeration controls markets since the early years of the company, at the end of the nineteenth century, control valves have played a major role in Johnson Control’s uprise as a HVAC manufacturer. Their large array of valves and valve accessories have found use in millions of HVAC applications throughout the entire world and their reliable and proficient capabilities have made Johnson Control valves to be some of the most sought-after products on the market.
Johnson Control Gas Valve
The company has been manufacturing control valves for almost a century, adapting to the constant changes in the requirements and needs of the heating, ventilating and air conditioning industry. With one of the largest selections of gas valves and actuators available, the company is certified and approved as one of the best valve manufacturers in North America, Asia and Europe. All gas valves come with either a three or five year warranty, which is a clear sign that their company places a lot of trust in their own products. Usually when a manufacturer offers such a long warranty, the products are thoroughly tested and their breakdown rate is extremely low. A long warranty is simply a sign of quality, reliability and professionalism, coming from the manufacturer.
There are six types of valves that they produces. These are: modulating spring return closed valves, modulating spring return open valves, modulating non spring return valves, on/off two-way spring return closed valves, on/off two-way spring return open valves and on/off three-way spring return valves. These valve types break down into ball operated valves, solenoid valves, thermostat expansion valves and standard motorized valves, although their focus seems to be on ball operated valves.
Ball valves is a general term we use for a distinct category of valves, which includes fire safe ball valves, panel mounted ball valves, actuated ball valves, high pressure ball valves and the likes. A ball valve, often referred to as a quarter turn valve, opens by turning a handle attached to a ball inside the valve. To make the ball that operates the valve more durable, since it will be the subject of high pressures and flow stress, some ball valves are chrome plated to increase toughness. The ball includes a port or a hole that blocks flow through the valve. Once the port is in line with the ends of the valve, flow will be released. The liquid passageway is constructed so that if it’s not in line with the ends of the valve, no spills occur, protecting the valve and the system you are using it for. The materials from which ball valves are manufactured are metals, ceramics or plastics (or a combination of the three).

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning or HVAC systems include hundreds of components. These components often include Johnson Control valves which are used in many fluid and gas control applications.
Johnson Controls manufactures several lines of valves all with specialized applications within an HVAC system. These valves can control critical functions such as the flow of gas to a furnace, movements of coolant within an air conditioning system or water used for cooling or to raise the humidity of the area. These valves can be operated manually although this function is rarely used in a modern HVAC system unless as part of an override system.
Most Johnson Controls valves are operated by actuators. These electric devices are controlled by a thermostat or controller and turn the controls of the valve. The electric actuator can be an integral part of the valve or a separate component attached to the valve.
The actuators can include a spring return that closes the valve when the flow of electricity ceases. This serves as a safety feature eliminating the possibility of a control valve remaining open during a power failure. Other actuator options include auxiliary switches and two- or three-way valve positioning.
The valves vary in design although ball valves are among the most common. A ball valve includes a round ball fitted within the round housing of the valve. The ball includes a hole or port that allows the material to pass through the valve when the port aligns with the openings of the valve. The valve is closed when the port is perpendicular to the valve housing.
Johnson Controls valves are also manufactured in a variety of sizes. In most cases, the valve size should be same as the pipes it is fitted to. The valves are also available in a variety of metals. Stainless steel valves resist corrosion and rust. Brass is another commonly used valve material.
While the choices of valves and actuators may seem daunting, each has its own use within an HVAC system. Matching the right Johnson Controls valve to the HVAC system can keep the system running efficiently with few problems for years. Also, utilizing the quality valves manufactured by Johnson Controls reduces the possibility of failures that can be expensive to repair and cause problems such as cold or hot living spaces. Using quality components, such as the valves manufactured by Johnson Controls, can reduce the possibility of downtime, lower the cost of operation and keep the home comfortable for years to come
