Hattersley Hook-Up Elite Prime manifold assemblies have been selected by M&E contractor Integral UK for the heating and air conditioning system of the Newcastle University Learning and Teaching Centre.
Launched last year, the Hattersley Hook-Up Elite Prime is a compact and modular valve system that includes the Elite Prime pressure independent control valve for accurate flow, temperature and pressure control. The lightweight units have an integral Venturi metering station for an improved flow range, a small footprint with equal length pipework and the ability to orientate the valve on-site for an easier and faster install on any fan coil or chilled beam.
By utilising the Hattersley gap detection actuator, the system is able to achieve excellent valve authority at all settings. This allows for maximum efficiency gains against required pump settings to achieve the required flow rates.
The Learning and Teaching Centre is part of Newcastle’s £350m Helix project, formerly known as Science Central, which aims to bring together science, technology, business, living and leisure in one landmark location in the heart of the city.
