A complete solution
Marflow Hydronics has launched the Remote Commissioning concept; an innovative approach designed to simplify the installation and commissioning of fan coil and chilled beam systems.
One element of the concept is the use of addressable pressure independent 2-port valves from Belimo, linked to a BMS or local controller. This enables valves to be adjusted remotely from a central PC or other control device without the need for an engineer to enter the ceiling void. Consequently, as well as speeding up commissioning, it also enables quick and easy re-configuration of systems – to accommodate layout changes within the space, for example.
“Most people don’t realise that centralised, remote control, which is widely used in other building services systems, can be applied to chilled and hot water systems,” explained Marflow’s Martin Lowe. “However, the Remote Commissioning approach is about more than new valve technologies. It is designed to give the specifier and installer complete control of the project from start to finish. As such it also incorporates centralised management of valve information and hydronic performance data, advanced pre-fabrication techniques and innovative commissioning processes using Marflow’s single station balancing method.”
