The Challenge: Stable flow control at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)
RIT puts pressure independent control valves to the test
Timothy Vann, Engineering & Facilities Management Services for RIT investigates pressure independent control solutions to improve the stability of the universities hydronic system. His team performs their own independent testing which prove excellent results in HVAC system performance and hydronic stability.
AB-QM™ pressure independent control
Danfoss is a global leader in pressure independent control excellence for over 30 years. Our line of AB-QM™ pressure independent control valves (PICVs) & actuators improve hydronic system efficiency by eliminating overflows and increasing ΔT. The unique design of AB-QM™ control valve incorporates an integrated differential pressure regulator. When equipped with a perfectly matched Danfoss electric actuator, AB-QM™ PICVs increase energy efficiency & room temperature control, improving indoor climate conditions - achieving simple, affordable, comfort.
The critical energy challenges facing campuses today include coping with limited budgets, volatile fuel prices, ambitious sustainability goals, a need for reliability to protect critical research, & keeping up with campus growth. Using district energy, CHP, and microgrid technologies, campus energy systems can reduce costs through efficiency, leverage fuel flexibility, and enhance resiliency and reliability while sustaining continued campus growth.
Aligning with sustainability goals, district energy systems help campuses make cuts to greenhouse gas emissions and minimize their carbon footprint. Long taken for granted, campus energy systems are now more visible than ever as they become leaders in clean, efficient, and reliable energy for their campus and the community.
Danfoss and Sondex® brand heat exchangers optimize heat transfer in a variety of commercial building applications including universities.
Customized products, and an extensive plate portfolio allows us to match the specific requirements of your application for the optimal heat transfer solution.
AB-QM™ Pressure-Independent Control Valves (PICVs)
Pressure Independent Control Valves (PICVs) provide both a control functionality and dynamic balancing solution for HVAC applications. The valves eliminate flow variations occurring in variable flow systems due to pressure fluctuations at partial load conditions.
To take advantage of the combined balancing and control features of Danfoss AB-QM it has to be equipped with actuators controlled by room thermostats or a Building Management System. Danfoss offers a broad range of actuators varying from thermal on-off, to digital actuators with bus communication.
