Siemens Building Technologies, an operating division of Siemens AG, has recently expanded its Acvatix range of ball valves with 6-way control ball valves which offer good control of heated and chilled ceilings applications having 4-pipe system. The exquisitely designed 6-way control ball valves can replace four valves, including actuators for many 4-pipe system ceiling applications. With only one actuator, the machine occupies only one data point which facilitates easy installation, commissioning and cabling service as well as reduced space requirements. This all leads to significant reduction in operational cost and enhanced energy efficiency.
The new ball valves have a in-built pressure compensation function which is active in case the valve is in the closed when no heating or cooling is being done. This offers proper maintenance of pressure preventing any damage to the heated or chilled ceiling. Moreover, the valves are bubble- free and water-tight as per the standard EN12666-1, Class A, a specification made for plastics piping systems.
The 6-way control ball valve allows greater flexibility in drainage planning since a suitable valve can be found even for massively sized rooms and to address high heating/cooling demands. The finely graduated flow values can be finely adjusted to the flow demand thus resulting in high energy efficiency.
Suitable screw fittings are available in the market to allow the control ball valves to be attached to pipe of different dimensions without the use of any additional pipe expanders. The valves come equipped with thread screw fittings while if need arises, screw fittings by third-party is also available in the market.
Market is observant of technological enhancements and new product launches by key manufacturers of ball valves which are used for machinery & fittings across a range of industries and applications. Recently, Prof Research Reports has added a report titled “Global and Chinese Ball Valve Industry, 2010-2020 Market Research Reports”, which offers an in-depth insight into the key drivers and restraints, key drivers and market challenges, business profile of key market players along with forecasts of key market segments across the globe with a focus on China.
