The White-Rodgers 36G (Gemini) Gas Valve controls and regulates the outlet gas pressures in residential furnaces. It can also be used in pool heating and commercial rooftop, laundry, and cooking applications. The valve employs a new, patented design featuring co-axial technology that allows a more compact size, reduces its weight and number of parts, and still maintains redundancy for safety and high gas flow capacity. The valve is available with a bottom outlet option that reduces manifold piping, which is said to be ideal for tight applications. According to the company, the design of the gas valve provides OEMs with a compact, fully functioning valve without compromising gas flow capacity.
The White-Rodgers Nitride Upgrade Kit is designed to replace silicon carbide ignitors with sturdier nitride design. It reportedly provides everything needed for easy aftermarket replacement of silicon carbide ignitors, including a nitride ignitor, power module, universal bracket, wiring harness, double-sided foam back tape, and a label to indicate that the furnace has been updated with nitride technology. According to the company, the Upgrade Kit installs easily into virtually any gas furnace within 30 min or less. White-Rodgers is a part of Emerson Climate Technologies.
