The Mechanical Contractor Innovation Air Conditioning and Building Services Ltd based in Croydon has selected the Hattersley Hook-Up Elite Prime manifold assemblies for the heating and air conditioning system of an international investment group campus building.
The Hattersley Hook-Up Elite Prime is a lightweight and modular valve system that includes the Elite Prime Pressure Independent Control Valve for accurate flow, temperature and pressure control. The compact units have an integral Venturi metering station for an improved flow range, a small footprint with equal length pipework and the ability to orientate the valve on-site for an easier and faster installation on any fan coil or chilled beam.
By utilising the Hattersley gap detection actuator, the system is able to achieve excellent valve authority at all settings. This allows for maximum efficiency gains against required pump settings to achieve the required flow rates.
The Hook-Up Elite Prime has been designed to deliver and maintain a system that enables energy and cost reduction over its lifetime. Prior to production, the valve has undergone significant design validation testing in accordance with BSRIA BTS01, subjected to 10,000 cycles, which is equivalent to 15 years of typical service, and the performance has remained excellent. In addition, every Elite Prime PICV is pressure tested to BS EN 12266-1.
Building design consultants Hilson Moran specified the manifold assemblies, which were installed into the fan coil units by the OEM manufacturer, Ability.
