Control valves

Bell & Gossett has introduced its new Optiflo™ Pressure Independent Control Valve and Circuit Setter® Ultraset™ Pressure Independent Flow Limiting Valve. Both the valves feature integrated pressure/temperature ports to verify differential pressure and temperatures. The Optiflo valve combines an externally field-adjustable automatic balance valve and a full modulating control valve with 100% valve authority. The valve maintains the set flow (±5% of setting) regardless of fluctuations in system pressure. It is available in sizes between ½" to 1 ¼". The Ultraset is a field-adjustable automatic flow limiting balance valve featuring an external locking handle that simplifies on-site flow adjustments.
