Operation

The 1″ GURU PC with Heater Assembly valve is self-contained and drains water bearing systems automatically before freeze damage can occur by monitoring ambient temperatures. Freezing conditions, which put water tanks and piping at risk for freeze damage, occur when the car heat is turned off for switching locomotives or even brief layovers. The heater assembly can be hard-wired into the car’s main power system, no other air connections are required.

Freeze protection valves placed in equipment cabinets tend to be colder than the heated passenger areas and do not heat up quickly when the car heat is turned on again. This can significantly delay the ability to refill the water systems and get the car back into service after a valve activation. The heater assembly allows the valve to heat up and close quickly as soon as car heat is again turned on. This allows refilling of the water system and getting the passenger car back into service as quickly as possible.
