G96 Series BASOTROL® Dual Operator Valve
The G96 Series BASOTROL® valves are combination,
dual operator, automatic valves available with or
without a pressure regulator. Typical applications
include central heating units, unit heaters, rooftop
units, make up air heaters, and similar applications.
Features and Benefits
Bipolar Magnetic Operator Provides dependable operation and long life
Top or Bottom Regulation
Provides application flexibility
Compact Design Permits installation in dimensionally restricted
Selectable Pilot Tap Positions Provides application flexibility
Numerous Magnetic Operator
Cover Styles Available
Allows various mounting options and
connection choices to best suit your
Optional Valve-mounted Ignition
Lowers assembly costs and simplifies wiring
The G96 Valves are suitable for use with natural gas
or Liquefied Petroleum (LP) gas at pressures up to
0.5 psi (35 mbar). The G96 valves with a silicone
diaphragm are suitable for operation over a
temperature range of -40 to 175ºF (-40 to 80ºC).
Valves with a nitrile diaphragm are suitable for
operation over a temperature range of -20 to 175ºF
(-29 to 80ºC).
Note: This valve should be used only in
applications that are within the limitations and
provisions of the applicable American National
and/or Underwriters Laboratories® standards.
The G96 valve is equipped with two BASOTROL
bipolar magnetic operators. Bipolar construction
reduces the possibility of the valve sticking in the
open position from residual magnetism or from
A leak limit orifice is supplied as standard on valves
with a regulator stack.
Valves can be constructed in one of the following
Indirect Burner Ignition
The indirect burner ignition construction offers
redundant main gas shutoff as the pilot and main
gas operators are in series. This construction is for
use with intermittent pilot ignition systems.
Direct Burner Ignition
The direct burner ignition construction offers
redundant automatic main gas shutoff. Both valves
are energized and de-energized simultaneously.
This construction is for use with direct spark or hot
surface ignition systems.
Magnetic Operator Cover Styles
An aluminum magnetic operator cover with conduit hub
and 30 in. (762 mm), 18 American Wire Gauge (AWG)
stranded lead wires are supplied as standard on all line
voltage models. The leads and hub position may be
located at the top, over the inlet, on the right side, or on
the left side of the valve. Lead wires with 1/4 in.
(6.35 mm) quick-connect terminals are also available.
The Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL), Inc. Listed steel
operator cover is available with a top conduit hub only.
A plastic magnetic operator cover with 1/4 in. (6.35 mm)
quick-connect male terminals is supplied as standard on
all low-voltage models. However, an aluminum or steel
operator cover with conduit hub is available.
The G96 is designed for various configurations. The top
adjust or bottom adjust regulator, and right- or left-hand
pilot tap options take advantage of space access
The G96 valves may be mounted on a horizontal
manifold with the magnetic operators pointed up
(vertical) or in a position not exceeding 90º from vertical.
The G96 also may be mounted on a vertical manifold in
any position around its axis.
