Marflow Hydronics has published its ‘Definitive guide to pressure independent control valves’. The company specialises in balancing, controlling and metering water-distribution systems in the HVAC industry, and the guide aims to provide understanding and knowledge to help those using the company’s products.

The guide describes the design and operation of PICVs (pressure-independent control valves), explaining how they work, their operational limits and the control options available. It has been written in conjunction with Chris Parsloe, an independent consultant who previously worked for BSRIA and has great experience with the operation of pipe systems.

Martin Lowe, joint managing at Marflow Hydronics, says, ‘We get asked so many questions about PICVs, so we developed this guide to offer help and support to our customers. It’s been written with them in mind. PICVs have so many great benefits, and if designers use this guide it will help them make the most of all those benefits in their systems.’
