Viega LLC’s new Automatic Recirculation Balancing Valve ensures a balanced domestic water recirculation system by dynamically changing with varying conditions. The valve is a modification of a Viega product that has been used successfully in Europe for years. It helps keep water temperatures more uniform by adjusting flow with changes in temperature. The results are faster hot water delivery, minimized waste energy and water and less stagnation and chance of contamination.
Unlike with manual valves, temperature can be set once and be maintained automatically. Settings can be changed easily, if needed. The valve can be installed on risers or branches. It features remote monitoring with temperature sensor, as well as an optional thermometer that provides visual indication of the valve setting. The valve's threaded ends allow it to be used with Viega ProPress or Viega PureFlow fittings systems. The Automatic Recirculation Balancing Valve includes bypass for thermal disinfection. Additional accessories that can be used with the valve include a thermometer, drain valve and optional insulation sleeve.
