Rated 1 out of 5 by from Limited life of plastic pegs I bought this to replace a failed actuator on an existing Drayton motorised valve. The two springs in the old actuator (which I assume are there to hold the valve in the set position) were both rattling around loose in the casing as the pegs retaining one end of each spring had broken off. These pegs are plastic, moulded as part of the plastic casing, and evidently had grown brittle with age (speeded up by the warm atmosphere next to the hot water tank) and had broken off. Making these pegs from plastic seems to me to be faulty design, and certain to fail in time. Surely they should be steel for a durable design - can't tell if the new one is the same, but it looks identical from the outside. That said, the actuator does what it's supposed to when new, but given its limited durability must score low in all categories. All the Drayton actuators have plastic cases so presumably have the same potential fault - the Honeywell ones have steel casings so may be a better buy."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good brand at the price its compatible with my local merchant and saved a lot of time chasing around for one. one of the simplest 3-ports to swap due to the clip off system.

Answer: 
The MA1 is a direct replacement for this valve and actuator. It will require a drain down and change out of both parts as the MA1 actuator will not fit onto the 679H valve body.The valve body is however the exact physical size it is the actuator couplings that are different.

BGMVSP-23

Hi
I am looking for a replacement for mid position actuator BGMVSP-23, I believe that I would need to get replaced the electric component and/or valve. I had an electrician who advised that the electric part is fine however the valve is stuck. Please advise which Drayton product would be a direct replacement for the following:
- electric part
- bras valve
- electric part and the valve combined

Answers

Answer: 
The BGMVSP23 is a British Gas mid position variant.

It can be replaced by the Drayton Mid Position Actuator part No 40818 which will attach to the existing valve body or the whole valve and actuator assembly part No 81844

Answer: 
This is a direct replacement for the Danfoss HSA3 mid position valve. Both valve and actuator would be required to be changed.

There is a slight difference between the existing wiring and the new wiring of the MA1. On the HSA3 the BROWN wire will become the WHITE wire. All other wires are the same.

Answer: 
The A679B316-52LO was designed for Worcester. It was supplied to Worcester for the type of boilers that they were making at that time and is only available from Worcester. It is a 3/4" 3 wire, 3 port diverter valve with inverted threads. I am afraid that Drayton do not have a substitute for these valves as they were manufactured as a special for Worcester only.
