Continental Controls has been making turbine and natural gas fuel control products for more than 30 years, giving us real-world experience in designing our products. CCC continues to be a leader in both gas turbine and gas engine fuel control products. Leading the way with such innovative concepts as closed loop flow control, not position control. Our voice coil actuated valves reduce overshoot, hysteresis, and friction--improving both responsiveness and longevity. 


  • The AGV10/50
    The CCC Advanced Gas Valves (AGV) are used to control the flow of gaseous fuel to gas turbine engines in the range of 5,000 bhp to 38,750 bhp. The valves have been designed to provide a precise interface between the control system and gas turbine engine....

  • The AGVs have a linear control system and fast response times, providing excellent transient performance in Gen-Set and mechanical drive applications. The valves also offer superior turbine performance in any mechanical drive application. The high accuracy of the valve in the start fuel range ensures consistent starting characteristics, and the AGV simplifies the integration of the on-skid gas system plumbing and wiring.

    The AGV provides excellent start reliability, very fast response, and computer control, with the ability to transition from open to closed or closed to open in less than 100ms. The valve is powered by a 24 Vdc battery source and has a low power consumption. It has high dirt tolerance and a built-in flow meter with embedded sensors for measuring and reporting fuel flow, fuel supply pressure, fuel temperature, and engine fuel manifold pressure. The valve has a poppet-type design with two control loops and a high pre-load spring for a positive shut-off, making it pressure-independent for fuel supply pressure variations.

    The AGV's electronics and sensors are in an integrated control housing with NEMA-7 compliant flanges for use in a Class I, Division 1 area for Group D gases. The electrical components are isolated from the gas stream, and the valve is made of corrosion-resistant materials, including anodized aluminum, stainless steel, and Buna-N rubber. It is IP66 rated and can use Super Viton® for applications with sour gas.

    The AGV valve is used in engine fuel systems for accurate and fast fuel control. The valve is computer-controlled and adjusts fuel flow to match the fuel demand signal, with a fast response time of less than 100ms. The valve is constructed with corrosion-resistant materials and is isolated from the gas stream. The valve can be customized for specific engine applications, and an embedded computer makes the valve "smart" and programmable. The valve can also be used with advanced electronic control assemblies or any PLC Control System.

  • The FT10
    A complete fuel shut off fuel train for use with Gas Turbine Engines....

  • The Fuel Train (FT) is designed for fast shutoff of gaseous fuel flow to industrial gas turbine engines, with zero leakage from inlet to outlet and can achieve ANSI Class IV shut-off capability. The valve is suitable for emergency and normal shutdown operations and is made of stainless steel, making it suitable for use in corrosive service conditions and even catastrophic fire. It is suitable for use on industrial turbines up to 5820 hp output range with single or multiple combustion fuel manifold systems. An ISO 9001 certified product, it works by using supply pressure to move a spring-loaded piston, which is used to admit fuel to the turbine.
  • The ECV5
    The ECV 5 is a complete Emissions Control System for Gas Engines. The ECV 5 can be configured for controlling either rich burn or lean burn gaseous fueled engines (fuel can be either natural gas or other alternative fuels)....

  • The CCC ECV5 system features full authority fuel control and fast-acting control that can maintain mapped load versus fuel input or even dithering around a dynamic setpoint to optimize the performance of the three-way catalyst. The system works by using an electronically controlled valve that functions as a zero-pressure regulator with no droop. A low-pressure transducer senses the discharge pressure, which is compared to the pressure set point, and the pressure set point is occasionally adjusted by the dynamic input from the optional catalyst monitor or other outside controller or load input. The system also supports a wide-band oxygen sensor and is suitable for controlling natural gas engines, and it can operate on turbocharged or dual-bank engines.
