THE PRESENT AND FUTURE OF
VARIABLE FLOW

As everyone becomes more aware of the possible effects of global warming, the issues of reductions in energy use and greater system efficiency should be uppermost in the engineers mind.

In response to the desire to reduce energy use whilst increasing system efficiency, HVAC system design has changed from constant flow to variable flow. This design change allows for variable speed pumps to be used, leading to dramatic energy savings and increased environmental space control.

To allow these systems to operate efficiently, Differential Pressure Control Valves (DPCVs) or Pressure Independent Control Valves (PICVs) need to be installed to control the fluctuating system pressures caused by the constantly changing water volumes as demand changes, resulting in changes to the pump speed.

A well designed system with Crane Fluid Systems' DPCVs and/or PICVs strategically positioned, offers building occupants a better working environment at the same time as giving the owner greatly reduced energy bills.

INTRODUCTING THE NEW
DOMINATOR PRO

The Dominator PRO Flow Management System is a pre-fabricated unit combining the essential control components and connecting pipework associated with terminals units, into one compact, fully-assembled and tested unit ready for simple and fast on-site connection.

BEST IN CLASS PERFORMANCE
THE NEW 40MM H- BODY
  • The H-Body unit comprising two T-Ported ball valves
  • Allows easy back flushing, forward flushing and isolation.
  • The position of the handles gives clear indication of flow / bypass mode
  • Designed around 3/4" full bore ball for optimum flow.
  • Can be adapted to 1/2" and 3/4" end connections.
  • Simple attachment to existing fan coil units.
KEY FEATURES OF THE NEW 40MM H-BODY



H-body sub-assembly 48% lighter than previous model.

Six PTFE seats.

1/2" BSPT Taper threaded connections.

3-way chrome plated ball.

1/2" Tailpiece / Seat retainer with Union nut.

O-ring between body and seat retainer.

Benefits for Design Engineers

  • A compact design to help with space limitations.
  • Minimal design involvement.
  • All the necessary components supplied as one factory tested unit.
  • Saves time, reduces specification risks and provides maximum value to the client.
  • Known performance of the assembled unit.

Benefits for Installing Contractors

  • Designed with the BSRIA BG29 guidelines in mind to aid flushing.
  • A lightweight design to reduce bracket requirements and ease installation.
  • Purchasing the individual components and assembling on site is time-consuming, repetitive work that requires considerable labour time.
  • The correct flow control valve will be selected for each terminal unit to avoid re-work and delays in project time plans.
  • Reduced risk of joint leaks (all units pre-tested).
WHY DYNAMIC BALANCING

To maximise system efficiencies, it is essential that systems are correctly balanced. A dynamic balanced system results in correct, specified flow rates throughout the building, saving energy, reducing costs and is the key to providing a comfortable indoor environment.

Crane FS ProBalance range includes a variety of dynamic balancing valves that use the latest technology to maintain the required design flow rate, even in part load conditions.

The Crane FS ProBalance range of valves includes; DPCVs and PICVs ensuring pressure independent terminal control.

Crane FS manufacture Dominator Pro configurations for Direct Mount as well as configurations for Remote Mount, typically using Flexible Hoses.
