Danbury, Conn. – Belimo Americas is pleased to announce the release of KR actuator on the Pressure Independent Characterized Control Valve (PICCV). The multi-patented, rugged KR actuator offers 18 in-lbs (2 Nm) and is designed for motorizing open-close applications to ensure optimal valve design and absolutely reproducible control quality. The actuator features a simple, manually adjustable angle of rotation limiting device with a flow rate scale. Available on PICCV, this new actuator offers a compact solution where space is limited.
The PICCV has characterized control ball valve technology which provides an equal-percentage characteristic curve, better control and is self-cleaning eliminating blockage offering longer life and superior flow control than other short stroke solutions. The pressure independent valve directly controls water flow required by the coil and is not affected by pressure fluctuations in the system. By precisely controlling the flow, the pressure independent valve eliminates the need for a balancing valve, thus reducing the installation and balancing cost. The largest benefit for the owner is energy savings by eliminating overflow through the coil. KR actuators with the PICCV offer a compact simple field adjustable solution.
