    We will be buying a gas stove this year so I have been doing a lot of reading here and from the manufacturers online manuals and we see several references to S.I.T. valves and I.P.I. pilots. I think IPI stands for intermittent pilot ignition but can someone tell me what SIT stands for?
    Thanks,
    Randy

    sit is the valve maker
    high quality Italian engineered gas valves

    for example: nova sit 820 was/is one of the most common valves used today
