Hydronic balancing with dynamic valves

Hydronic balancing with dynamic valves

26th Jun 2020

Using dynamic valves like PICV or Intelligent Valves in your HVAC system lets the valves do the balancing for you, with no need for complex pressure loss calculations. The volumetric flow determines what valve needs to be used. And the PICV App from Siemens calculates the flow for you and guides you to the best valve-actuator combination. You also don’t need more flow-regulating or balancing valves, which means less installation effort. On-site commissioning is extremely simple thanks to easy max-flow pre-setting and automatic balancing. This is because dynamic valves ensure balanced water flow rates under all load conditions, which eliminates the impact of fluctuations on room temperature. Dynamic valves allow for energy savings of up to 30 percent with no sacrifice of comfort. You can save as much as 37 percent with Intelligent Valves.
