The new SALUS Auto Balancing Actuator is specifically designed to balance the flow of water through the underfloor heating (UFH) system. The patented product will help eliminate hot and cold spots; thereby improving home comfort and heating efficiency while reducing energy costs.
The Auto Balancing Actuator has a low power consumption of 0.5W and a speedy opening and closing action of typically 30 seconds. Unlike conventional thermo actuators, the Auto Balancing Actuator performs the function of both thermal actuator and supply regulator, resulting in two functions in one unit. Complete with two remote sensors that are placed on the supply and return from the manifold, the actuator constantly monitors the temperatures and will adjust the flow rate to maintain a delta of 13 degrees Fahrenheit for the UFH circuit. This is the ideal temperature differential between the supply and return; thereby balancing and optimizing system performance.
