New Combi valves from Siemens

Siemens has extended its proven Acvatix range by the introduction of a new range of pressure independent control combi valves, types VPP46 and VPI46 to complement the existing VPI45 range. These have a control valve for temperature control, a differential-pressure controller for balancing pressure fluctuations in the hydraulic system, a facility for pre-adjusting the required flow rate, and pressure test points for measuring the differential pressure, all integrated in one valve body.

They reduce planning, installation and commissioning costs, and increase the control accuracy under all operating conditions, leading to increased energy efficient operation.
