    There is a barometric damper just for natural draft heating systems. Skuttle makes it. A hole has to be made to the outdoors and a 4 or 6 inch duct has to run to the unit.

    Looks like an old Honeywell or White Rogers. We see a lot of older fireplaces with those.

    Do you have a wider shot that shows the ancient beast that this thing is installed in?

    Edit... After looking at it again I see that modern looking warning lable underneath it, so I guess they are used in newer stuff than I thought. I'm guessing fireplace? I guess that would make sense since this is the fireplace forum. I must have missed that part.

    Anyways, it is a millivolt gas valve. Cant tell what make or size or model number from the pic that I see.

    Sorry I'm not more help. Good luck.

    It's an older style millivolt gas valve that uses a jumper to power the pilot valve from external terminals. Most newer valves use internal connections to prove the flame voltage.
