Thermostatic Radiator Valves
Control of the space temperature at a comfortable level is easily accomplished by adjusting the dial clockwise or counterclockwise.
The dial has a numbered scale of 1 to 5 corresponding to temperatures of approximately 57°F to 79°F (14°C to 26°C).
The operator or sensing element must not be:
- in a drafty location
- installed above a heat source
The correct orientation direction is dependent upon the selected operator type. See the mounting guide visual below for reference.
There are a couple of reasons for overheating depending upon which system you have:
For One or Two-pipe systems:
- Ensure operator is not in a cold or drafty spot
- Check on dial adjustment knob as setting could be set too high
- Add a vacuum breaker which allows steam supply to cycle properly
For Hot Water systems:
- Check operator installation as it may not be seated properly
For 'under heating' issues:
- Ensure radiator is not blocked by furniture, heavy curtains, etc.
- Ensure operator is not in a 'hot' spot or wrong sensor location for that product selection.
Room controls for hydronic floor heatingTo ensure hydronic (water based) floor heating systems achieve the expected high level of comfort and low energy consumption, good room temperature controls are essential. Danfoss thermostats control the room temperature through heat radiating from the floor system.
Motorized control valves and actuatorsESBE motorized control valves (MCVs) ensure improved water temperature control in a variety of applications. The comprehensive range of ESBE MCVs and motorized actuators are used in: radiant heating, indirect domestic hot-water, chilled water, set-point application, and mixing/diverting applications.
