The Gas Manifold

On the back of our system, we built a pretty ugly gas manifold.  Right before each burner, we’ve installed shut off valves as well as needle valves to fine tune the burners.


In this picture, you can see our green Asco electric solenoid valve. It's normally closed so unless it gets the signal from the control panel, gas cannot flow to the big burner directly above it. Just below and to the right of it, you can see the brass needle valve and aluminum tubing. This is for our pilot light and the strength of the flame can be adjusted using this needle valve.
