1. Chillers with Pressure Independent Control (PICV)
The PICV will react to system pressure changes and regulate the flow of water to required flow by adjusting the actuator position. This helps the system to be accurately controlled even with pressure changes and reduced loads.
FlowCon recommends the following PICV (and Control Valve):
2. Chillers with Pressure Independent Temperature Control (PITCV)
The PITCV will react only to change in ΔT, which can be either deliberately set to a new target or automatic due to occupancy change. The PICV actuator will only move if a ΔT change is sensed. By optimizing ΔT, flow may be reduced to a minimum resulting in significant energy savings and extended life of equipment, while providing pressure independent ΔT control and optimized comfort.
FlowCon recommends the following PITCV (and Control Valve):
3. Chillers with Automatic Balancing (ABV)
The automatic balancing valve will react to system pressure changes and limit the flow of hot or cold water to required max. flow helping the system to be accurately controlled even with pressure changes. This solution is recommended to be installed with the separate butterfly valve.
FlowCon recommends the following ABV (and Control Valve):
