DANBURY, CT, 30 September 2022: Belimo Americas announces the release of QCV (pressure dependent) and PIQCV (pressure independent) ZoneTight zone valves with new press fit connections, for what is described as fast, consistent and reliable installation. Making the announcement through a Press release, Belimo said zone-valve assemblies are designed and engineered for maximum efﬁciency in tight spaces and are suited for commercial buildings, where higher close-off and adaptable flow are desired.
According to Belimo, assemblies accommodate chilled or hot water, 60% glycol and a body pressure rating of 250 psi. A zero-leakage ball valve design eliminates energy losses and is resistant to clogging, the company said. The device ensures lower power consumption – up to 95% less than conventional zone valves, the company said, adding that the device lends itself for field-adjustable flow to meet specific design requirements.
Russ Brown, Product Manager, Belimo Americas, said: “For OEMs and contractors, these new zone valve assemblies with press fit connection provide a fast installation and energy-efficient solution. Unlike any other zone valve on the market today, the valves are field adjustable, allowing you to adjust the pressure to suit your needs.”
According to Belimo, typical applications include unit ventilators, fan-coil units, VAV reheat coils, fin tubes and radiant panels. In addition to fitting into space-restricted areas, the QCV and PIQCV are easy to assemble, Belimo said.
