Taconova launches solar station
To simplify the installation of solar heating systems, Taconova has introduced a solar station combining pump, regulator and air vent. Designed for commercial, public-sector and domestic applications, the FV 70 Tacosol 3.0 enables hydraulic balancing, flow measurement and venting to be performed at the same point. The quantity of fluid in the primary circuit can be set exactly and checked. Taconova explains that balancing solar-heating systems can be difficult because of the temperature differential. Systems that are correctly balanced and free of air optimise energy extraction. This solar station can be regulated precisely and rapidly without requiring diagrams, tables, expensive measuring devices or training courses. The visual scale is precalibrated for glycol. It can be installed and vented by one person. A multi-functional ball valve greatly simplifies the filling and draining of the system.
