Removal, installation and adjustment of a drive of a butterfly valve

The drive of gas is very sensitive to excesses. Therefore at installation to address with it it is necessary very carefully. The excess can lead subsequently to cable break. Therefore the cables having excesses, it is not necessary to put.

The cars having automatic adjustment of speed of the movement "Tempostat" at the lever of a butterfly valve have an additional drive of gas. If it is necessary, it is disconnected to similarly usual drive of gas.

The diesel engine 320d has no gas drive. The provision of a pedal of gas is transferred to a control system via the pedal sensor.
