Johnson Controls Building Systems has introduced a series of VP1000 pressure-independent control valves that promise to reduce the installation and commissioning costs for smaller fan coil and air-handling air-conditioning units.
“Traditionally, two separate valves are installed to regulate the flow and pressure of water through the air-conditioning units in response to the demands of a controller. The VP1000 valve performs the functions of both valves, with a differential pressure regulator and a regulating valve for flow adjustment. It is easier to install, more cost-effective and requires less maintenance,” explains Neil Cameron, general manager at Johnson Controls Systems & Service South Africa.
The VP1000 pressure-independent control valves provide for considerable flexibility in various applications. The valves can be used for radiant panels or for fan coil units. They are available at Johnson Controls service outlets and distribution points.
