Ranco 4-way valve to disappear
SPAIN: Sanhua has ceased production of the Ranco four-way reversing valve it acquired from Invensys in 2007.
Since the acquisition the four-way reversing valves have been produced under both the Ranco and Sanhua brands. All Ranco reversing valves C, N, V, VH series are now on official phase out with deliveries based on residual stock availability until the end of this year.
As an alternative, Sanhua offers the Sanhua brand SHF four-way reversing valve. This valve is said to offer a wider range (nominal capacities from 3 to 420kW) and better lead times. In addition, the new design of slide makes the SHF range suitable for usage with variable refrigerant flow systems.
