Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management and automation, has announced the debut of Pressure Independent Balancing and Control Valves (PIBCVs) in North America for improved valve functionality and temperature control in buildings.
The automatic balancing valves aim to create a more stabilized building environment by controlling the pressure and flow of HVAC systems. Schneider Electric now offers a complete range of PIBCVs to fit a wide variety of applications in building environments and reduce energy consumption by 15 to 20 percent.
Facility managers using PIBCVs can achieve both simplified operations and high system performance. Additionally, when PIBCVs are fitted with an actuator, they replace the manual balancing and motorized control valves with a single valve, thus reducing installation costs.
