Additions to the Acvatix range of ball valves from Siemens Building Technologies enables the company to offer valves in sizes from 15 to 50 mm with internal and external threads. These valves are suitable for hot- and cold-water systems and have been designed for robust performance and easy installation.

These valves can be flexibly combined with Siemens OpenAir damper actuators using specially designed mounting kits.

Bayonet mounts mean actuators can be added without needing tools. The brass housing minimises friction, so actuators with lower torques can be used. The valves are completely watertight.
