DENMARK: Danfoss has extended its range of pressure independent solutions for HVAC heating and cooling systems with the new AB-QM 4.0 Flexo flexible PICV connection set for fan coil units.
The AB-QM 4.0 PICV with its scale resistant materials and increased flow capacity per DN size, introduced at the end of 2019, redefined PICV value for HVAC designs.
The new AB-QM 4.0 Flexo is described as a compact, 8-in-1, PICV solution for fast installation, flushing and servicing of fan coil units in hydronic HVAC systems.
Pre-assembled and pressure tested to simplify installation, commissioning and servicing, the set comprises an AB-QM 4.0 pressure independent control valve, two 3-way ball-valves, a strainer, a drain valve and three test plug connections for pressure or flow measurements.
With these, the set provides an 8-in-1 solution for hydronic balancing, control, measuring, installation, flushing, filling, draining and servicing of fan coil units.
It is available in DN15 and DN20 sizes. Sets in DN15 contain an AB-QM 4.0 PICV valve with low flow, normal flow or high flow, covering design flows from 20-1200 l/h. The DN20 sets come with a normal flow or high flow AB-QM 4.0 valve and cover design flows from 110-1900 l/h.
For both DN15 and DN20 sets, matching flexible stainless-steel connection pipes and EPP insulation are available. With the insulation mounted it is still possible to see and get access to the PICV valve design flow setting, to drain the FCU and to measure flows and pressures. All standard Danfoss actuators for AB-QM 4.0 valves can be used.
