Schneider Electric announced the debut of Pressure Independent Balancing and Control Valves in North America for improved valve functionality and temperature control in buildings. The automatic balancing valves help create a more stabilized building environment by controlling the pressure and flow of HVAC systems under all occupancy variations and seasonal weather, which improves occupant comfort. Schneider Electric now offers a complete range of PIBCVs to fit a wide variety of applications in building environments and reduce energy consumption by 15 to 20 percent. PIBCVs provide a stable hydronic flow independent of changes in system pressure in heating and cooling circuits, creating a more manageable system for facility managers as well as occupants. Facility managers using PIBCVs can achieve both simplified operations and high system performance. Additionally, when PIBCVs are fitted with an actuator, they replace the manual balancing and motorized control valves with a single valve, thus reducing installation costs. Building owners experience cost savings through reduced installation costs and energy savings, while occupants enjoy stable temperature settings.
