Welcome to Therm-Omega-Tech's booth!

The GURU® line of freeze protection valves are the North American standard in locomotive cooling system protection. Requiring no power or air, they sense the water temperature of the locomotive cooling system and drain it before temperatures reach freezing. Protecting your investment and thousands of dollars of repair and downtime.

Our GURU® PC valve for passenger cars are self-contained and drain water-bearing systems in passenger cars automatically by monitoring ambient temperatures. The valve is completely mechanical and requires no power connection of any kind. The optional heater assembly is connected to available electric power to prevent draining when car heat is functioning normally. The heater quickly closes the valve for refilling after a drain and restoration of car power.

New for 2017 is our GURU® PC Heaters now available in 230VAC along with the standard 120VAC/74VDC.

Also both the GURU PC valves and heaters are NSF 61/372 certification by a 3rd party Truesdail Laboratories and Shock & Vibration tested to IEC 61373:2010 and EP061515-1, Section 3 by Delserro Engineering Solutions, Inc.

 Products

  • GURU® DL2.1
    The GURU® DL2.1 is the most widely used and proven locomotive freeze protection valve in the world. This self-operating thermostatic drain valve senses the water temperature of the locomotive cooling system and prevents freezing.
    ...

  • Benefits

    • Will not trip or dump while locomotive is running
    • Fully automatic – it never forgets to activate freeze protection
    • Completely mechanical – No electrical or air connections
    • Not affected by air flow or air temperature surrounding valve – releases only when cooling water reaches setpoint

  • Magnum GURU®
    The Magnum GURU® Plug is a higher discharge capacity version of the standard GURU Plug. It is a self-operating thermostatic drain valve that provides almost a full 1.2 inch bore to rapidly drain a locomotive before freeze damage can occur....

  • Benefits

    • Drains twice as fast as the standard GURU Plug
    • Will not trip or dump while locomotive is running
    • Straight SAE threads and O-ring seals provide for easy field maintenance and testing
    • Easy installation
    • Completely mechanical – No electrical or air connections
    • Not affected by air flow or air temperature surrounding valve – releases only when cooling water reaches setpoint

    • Unit automatically rearms after filling and reheating Actuator sensing surface is the only wetted part

    Design Features

    • Actuator sensing surface is the only wetted part
    • Design excludes cooling water chemicals and other debris from moving parts
    • Long service life: All moving parts are stainless steel
    • Available in modified 1-1/4” NPT tee or flanged tee body styles
    • Paint mask minimizes accidental paint-ins
    • Knob on cartridge for easy installation and removal even in awkward locations
  • GURU® Flag and Clip
    The GURU® Flag and Clip Tool allows filling of the locomotive cooling system with cold water without tripping the GURU® valves....

  • The clip at the end of the cable is inserted into the slot in the GURU® stem/cam after warming the nose of the cartridge. The flag can then be attached to the side of the locomotive by its magnetic base to provide an external indication that the GURU® has been disabled. When the locomotive’s cooling system is back up to temperature, the clip is easily removed and the GURU® is again armed to protect the locomotive.

    The GURU Flag and Clip Tool allows filling a locomotive cooling system with cold water that would otherwise trip the GURU® Plug open. When used on a deactivated GURU Plug, this tool serves as a highly visible indicator that the plug has been disabled. The GURU® Flag will help prevent leaving a penny or washer in the valve stem, defeating the valve’s function and possibly resulting in freeze damage to the locomotive.

    Design Features

    • Alerts to the presence of deactivated GURU® plug
    • Magnetic base attaches to locomotive body or running board
    • Flashing light for increased visibility
    • Long cable length for easy placement
  • Compressor Head Cleaning Tool
    The compressor head cleaning tool allows insertion of the cleaning nozzle into the same flanged body as the GURU® Plug Type CH or CHS to clean out dirt that has accumulated in the water-cooled compressor heads....

  • Benefits

    • Clears compressor heads of dirt and foreign matter.
    • Quickly cleans water cooled compressor heads.
    • Protects cooling jacket from blockage.
    • Connects to any water source for cleaning.

    Design Features

    • All components are stainless steel for corrosion resistance and durability.
    • Cleaning tool fits into standard DL2.1 GURU Plug Type CH flanged body and GURU CHS.
    • Provides four water jets to clean out the compressor head cooling jacket.
