Trend launches range of PICVs
Trend Control Systems has extended its range of control systems with a range of pressure-independent control valves (PICVs). These valves are well suited to variable-flow systems in new builds. They provide constant flow under varying pressure conditions. One unit replaces three separate components that would traditionally be used — a differential-pressure regulator, a maximum-flow limiter and a temperature control valve.
The ability to preset the flow rated from 10 to 100% of the nominal value for the valve makes specification and installation easy.
They improve system stability and controllability when the flow percentage is adjusted by not limiting the stroke of the flow but by an independent control element within the valve.
Chris Monson, strategic marketing manager, says, ‘This new product range is great news for those looking for a single-source supplier of control-system components, which also includes our popular range of actuators.’
