The Double Regulating Valves are also called Balancing Valves.

Econosto Double Regulating and Commissioning Valves are installed in the pipe work of chilled water air conditioning and hot water central heating systems as well as potable water systems and serve to achieve a hydronic balance between the various circuits of the system. The balance is achieved by a pre-setting with memory position. The required values of pre- setting can be obtained from the flow charts. All intermediate values are infinitely adjustable.

The selected pre-setting can be read-off two scales (basic scale and fine adjustment scale). The Econosto double regulating and commissioning valves have two threaded ports for fill and drain ball valves or pressure test points for the measurement of differential pressure. The Econosto double regulating and commissioning valves are delivered with 2 blind plugs as a standard unless test points are requested.

Advantages of Econosto DRV’s:

- One valve for 5 functions:

Pre-setting, measuring, isolating, filling and draining

- Low pressure loss

Unique design and oblique pattern

- Infinitely adjustable pre-setting

Exact measurement of pressure loss by means of the pressure test points.

- Patented measuring channel

designed around the stem assembly to the test points ensures the best possible accuracy between differential pressure measured at the pressure test points and the actual differential pressure of the valve.

Why do we need to Balance Air Conditioning Systems ?

Balancing of heating and chilled water air conditioning systems is necessary to avoid the following problems :

1. Some rooms almost never achieve the desired room temperature or are not cooled sufficiently. This problem especially arises in case of influence of other heat sources.

2. After changing over from low temperature to heating operation, parts of the system are only heated after a long time.

3. Fluctuating room temperatures especially arising during low demand periods.

4. High energy consumption although the required room temperature regulator is installed. Even high quality regulators may not solve this problem.

Distribution of flow :

The main reason for these problems is that incorrect flows are available in the various circuits. If this is the case, the problem may be solved by installing a double regulating and commissioning valves or flow regulators in the corresponding pipes. The course of pressure in a circuit makes clear why this occurs.

The illustration shows that the pump has to produce a differential pressure of at least delta P - total to guarantee a sufficient supply to appliance 4.This will however, inevitably result in a excessive differential pressure at the appliances 1 to 3 leading to an increased flow at these appliances and thus to an increased energy consumption. To remedy this, double regulating and commissioning are installed. The excess in differential pressure is now absorbed by the double regulating and commissioning valves. The desired flow rate may be controlled and set. To be able to control appliance 4 as well it is recommended to install a double regulating and commissioning valve here too. The correct supply of each appliance is now guaranteed.

Wrong flow rates in the various circuits lead to an increased energy consumption. On the one hand, a higher pump capacity must be provided to guarantee a sufficient supply of each appliance and on the other hand appliances being installed at a favourable hydronic position are then over supplied. This will result in an increased room temperature or, in chilled water air conditioning systems, in too low a room temperature.If the average temperature in a building exceeds the nominal value by 1 degree C, the energy consumption is increased by 6 - 10 % . In chilled water air conditioning systems , temperatures being 1 degree C too low will result in an increase in energy consumption of about 15%.

Note: Periodical maintenance is required (at least once in 6 months) for large diameter Balancing Valves (DRV’s of 200mm & above). It is suggested to open and close the balancing valves (DRV) a few times once in every 6 months to ensure that no contaminants are trapped with in the trim of the valve. It is also recommended to install another isolating valve (Wafer butterfly valves are recommended) on the discharge side of large size Balancing Valves (DRV) for any required maintenance or replacement of equipment or balancing valves.

Every part of the valve is designed in such a way that the whole valve is maintenance free. The materials are carefully matched with the parts to make the friction as small as possible. However, due to safety reasons, every valve should be inspected regularly. Before valve removal from the plant or before service the suitable part of the pipeline should be closed.

The linear scale and the plastic set should be protected against painting. The valves could be installed in every position in inlet and outlet pipelines with the hand wheel in down direction. Attention should be paid to flow direction indicated by the arrow on the valve body. Before starting pipeline work (especially after repairs) whole pipeline should be rinsed out by fully opening the valves in order to remove all solid residues which could be dangerous for sealing surfaces. Turning the hand wheel clockwise (according to direction indicated on the hand wheel) can close the valve. The valve is opened by anti-clockwise rotation of the hand wheel. It is prohibited to use additional lever for turning the hand wheel.

For presetting and fine adjustment of the flow volume (balancing), Econosto offers the PFM Flex3- Pressure and Flow Measuring Instrument.

The Econosto PFM Flex3 - Pressure and Flow Measuring Instrument is an advanced wireless operating precision instrument for measuring and data retention of flow in Heating, Cooling, and Drinking Water systems. (please refer page 43 of this catalogue for more details).
