VENTITE™ Inspirators provide a low-cost means of supplying air/gas mixture to premix-type gas burners. Gaseous fuel under high pressure is introduced through a drilled spud orifice into the venturi throat, pulling in a proportional amount of combustion air. The air and gas are mixed and may be used to supply most premix-type industrial burner nozzles.
PREMIX® Blower Mixers provide a convenient, flexible method of supply premixture for a variety of industrial burners. Air for combustion is drawn in through the ratio valve where it can be throttled. That same ratio valve includes a gas butterfly valve cross linked to the air valve. A multiple-screw cam design permits fuel flow to be matched to air flow at each firing position. This gives excellent control and allows on-ratio firing through wider operating ranges than venture mixers can provide.
Thorough blending of the air / gas mixture for all MAXON premix burner systems is provided in our Multi Ratio Mixing Tubes. Most clean, low pressure gases may be used in these mixers. These Mixing Tubes can offer localized mixing of pre-proportioned air and fuel to single or multiple industrial burner systems. A wide range of capacities provides flexibility within your applications.

Series "LG" Mixing Tubes provide thorough blending of the air/gas mixture for all MAXON premix industrial burner systems. Most clean, low pressure gases may be used. When combined with a combustion air blower and MAXON MICRO-RATIO® flow control valve, the "LG" Mixing Tube can offer localized mixing of pre-proportioned air and fuel to single or multiple burner systems. A wide range of capacities provides application flexibility.
Using the kinetic energy of higher gas pressures, the Series "HG" Mixing Tube provides a thoroughly blended air/gas mixture. The higher gas pressure allows use of a lower pressure combustion air blower. In combination with a MAXON MICRO-RATIO® flow control valve and combustion air blower, the "HG" Mixing Tube can provide localized mixing of air and fuel to single or multiple industrial burner systems. Adjustment is simple through single point proportioning.
SMARTFIRE® is a turnkey, mass flow air/fuel ratio control system for use with MAXON's natural gas and oxygen fired burners, especially those designed for low-emission applications like our OPTIMA SLS®, KINEDIZER®, CYCLOMAX®, OXY-THERM® industrial burners. The flow control valve system is comprised of five components that integrate easily with a conventional burner management system and pipe train.
Today's advanced industrial burner systems minimize emissions while maximizing efficiency. Advanced combustion systems require advanced ratio control through a high degree of precision, repeatability and durability. SMARTLINK® MRV flow control valves provide that control and more. An electronic parallel positioning system for air/fuel ratio control, SMARTLINK® MRV is the industry standard in gas valves when operational reliability and precision are required.
The SMARTLINK® DS provides highly accurate positioning, with continuous duty, maintenance-free operation. The SMARTLINK® DS offers many advantages and flexible feature configurations, making it well-suited for a myriad of industrial applications. It is a general purpose control actuator designed for the precise control of air, fuel, gas, steam, chemicals and liquids for industrial combustion applications, as well as for general industrial process control applications.
The MAXON SMARTLINK® Intelligent Valve Actuator Assembly provides a high degree of precision, repeatability, and commissioning flexibility for industrial flow control. The compact design of this flow control valve is ruggedly built with FM, CE, and CSA approvals for outdoor, weatherproof installations. The SMARTLINK® actuator is also FM approved for hazardous area applications in mills, refineries and other plants.
MICRO-RATIO® Flow Control Valve assemblies are used for air, gas and oil proportioning control. The multiple screw cam assembly provides mechanical adjustment capabilities to the air/fuel ratio at each valve position throughout the entire capacity range of your industrial burner system. Throttling range of this gas valve is fully adjustable and designed to operate over the extremely wide turndown capabilities of MAXON's modern burner systems.
MAXON's Series "CV" Flow Control Valves incorporate a full-flow, fixed gradient butterfly valve design for high capacities at low pressure drops, using minimum operating torque. Series "BV" Balancing Valves are used to balance gas or air flows in multiple-burner systems fed by a common manifold. These gas valves feature a full-flow butterfly design with provision for locking in any position. Both flow control valves are used for air, gas and oil proportioning control.
MAXON's A Style Synchro flow control valve bodies are designed to meet ANSI flange specifications. High pressure rating flow control valves are available in cast iron, carbon steel and brass bodies. SYNCHRO Gas Valves may be used independently for individual adjustable gradient fuel flow control, or in tandem with other fuel and air control valves for more sophisticated multi-zone control or multi-fuel applications.
