  •   [FAQ]:

Q: Will this work with a “general“ brand on the furnace humidifier? The numbers on my current label are as follows: 24/60, 8.5 watts, and 3/32 orifice.

A: The specs do align with the 4040 valves. You’ll have to verify that the mechanical appearance would fit your specific installed unit. One common failure is that the valve orifice can clog if your water source has high amounts of calcium deposits or sand.

Q: My solenoid is RP corporation and has b2015-s51 but the orifice is 3/32. this one states the orifice as 3/64 will this size difference be a problem?

A: Quite a bit smaller and no expert but would reduce flow.

Q: Does this valve include an in-line strainer? (brass) so I do not need to purchase a plastic one?

A: Yes it does.
