Belimo Energy Valve
The Belimo Energy Valve is a two-way pressure independent control valve that optimizes, documents and proves water coil performance. Energy Valve uses Belimo Delta T Manager™ algorithm to directly control AHU coil performance. It monitors coil performance characteristic curve and resulting energy/power output. With standard analog signal and feedback wiring communicates data to the DDC system via BACnet MS/TP, BACnet IP and TCP/IP for Building Automation System integration. The actuator calculates and stores all the coil performance data such as Delta T and energy usage. Coil performance data, stored trends and control functions can be sent to and from the BAS via the data network to optimize coil and system performance saving building energy consumption. belimo.us
Cashco has released a new ULR-1 valve with new accompanying information.
The ULR-1 was originally marketed as the U1, prior to and following the purchase of Kaye MacDonald in 1999. Unfortunately, the only documentation for the U1 and similar products was the original schematics, which showed how the tubing and fittings were to be installed.
“Previously, a customer would have had to locate the technical bulletin, work their way through its product coder and then work through a separate product coder for the correct bill of materials for the hookup,” says Clint Rogers, general manager, valve division. “Not anymore. With these new products, all of the information will be in the technical bulletin and IOM.”
The ULR-1 (Un-Loading Regulator), is a DA4, with a Cashco CA1 back pressure valve mounted onto it. Using the inlet pressure from the valve, the CA1 is “set” to control the outlet pressure of the main valve. However, because the outlet of the CA1 constantly exhausts into the atmosphere, the media through the valve must be environmentally safe gas such as oxygen or nitrogen. cashco.com
Emerson’s new EX3 Electronic Expansion valve combines the superior control resolution of a stepper-motor valve with the automatic shut-off of a solenoid in a full take apart body design.
The EX3’s integration of a positive shut-off solenoid valve, its precise refrigerant control through the use of stepper-motor technology, and the full take-apart body design provides the safety and efficiency needed in today’s commercial refrigeration applications while allowing for easy on-site commissioning, maintenance and service.
The EX3 is the ideal electronic solution for retail showcases, walk-in coolers and freezers, and cold rooms. It maximizes energy savings and provides improved superheat control, leading to more reliable food storage. emersonclimate.com
Grundfos announces the sales release of four new “small” Magna models for larger residential and light commercial applications.
All four models – Magna3 32-60, Magna3 32-100, Magna1 32-60 and Magna1 32-100 – are available in cast iron and stainless steel, and boast the same features and benefits of medium and large Magna models.
Grundfos sources say Grundfos is the only manufacturer to offer a variable-speed electronically commutated motor (ECM)-based circulator that uses AutoAdapt, an integrated logic algorithm, to “learn” the varying energy-usage patterns of an application over time, enabling the software to automatically determine the lowest possible operating efficiency point to meet ever-changing demand.
In addition, the new Flowlimit function and Flowadapt control mode make it possible to set a maximum flow limit for the pump in order to improve overall energy efficiency and eliminate the need for pump throttling valves. Other features include proportional pressure, constant pressure, constant temperature and constant curve modes, as well as heat energy meeting.
The innovative MAGNA series features easy communication with building management systems and built-in heat energy metering. Additionally, wireless connectivity enables handheld pump control, monitoring and reporting capabilities with the Grundfos GO, a mobile toolbox available on Apple and Android devices. grundfos.us/magna3
The Honeywell MZV Series (Motorized Zone Valve) is the first linear zone valve with a built-in balancing plug that permits pre-balancing for each zone. Applications are residential or commercial zoning, hot water heating or chilled water air conditioning systems, fan coil units, or indirect water heater service.
• rack-and-pinion linear design fast acting: 15 seconds to open, 5 seconds to close.
• two piece rack design to extend service life.
• low power consumption (8 valves, 40 VA transformer)
• external valve position indicator.
The Johnson Controls VG1000 ball valve with press fit connections eliminates the need for soldering. This simplifies the installation process, reduces installation time and minimizes interference at the customer’s site. With the added benefits of no fire watch, or night shift requirement, the total cost of press fit installations is often less than comparable soldering installations.
VG1000 series ball valves are available with multiple connection types and the two-way and three-way valves of ½-in. ¾-in. and one-inch sizes are also available with ProPress fittings. bit.ly/JCIvalves
Victaulic’s Series 461 stainless steel butterfly valve, an expansion of the Vic-300 MasterSeal butterfly valve line, delivers a cost competitive option for the potable water and HVAC markets. Rated for hot and cold potable water service, the Series 461 valve complies with the new low-lead requirements and is certified to ANSI/NSF 61 and ANSI/NSF 372. The valve features a patented seat design, assuring full 360-degree sealing. Series 461 valves accommodate bi-directional, dead-end services to full working pressure, varying from full vacuum to 300 psi (2,065 kPa). They are available in 3- to 8- inch sizes (80 to 200 millimeters). victaulic.com
White-Rodgers 36H32-214 Gas Valve
The new 36H32-214 gas valve from White-Rodgers is a universal replacement valve for fast opening furnace applications. With straight-through gas flow, the gas valve installs quickly and easily, because it doesn’t require the use of reducer bushings supplied with other universal kits. The 36H32-214 is offered as a drop-in replacement on single stage, fast opening, HSI/DSI/Intermittent/Proven Pilot furnace applications. It includes a convenient LP conversion kit.
