Variable Flow CPD Webinar

Sign up to our Variable Flow Webinar

Understanding PICVs for Effective Flow Control in Variable Volume Systems

Wednesday 27th Oct 2021 6.00pm to 7.30pm (UAE Time), in collaboration with CIBSE UAE

Presenters: Mark Walker – Technical Specification Engineer UK & Ahmad Marzouk – Regional Technical Manager MEA

This webinar will provide insight into the use of Pressure Independent Control Valves (PICVs) on modern variable volume systems, utilising live BMS feeds from our Flow Technology Centre, in Dubai as well as interactive examples. We will also explore the operation, application and common installation queries in relation to these products, at the end of the Webinar, participants will be able to confidently select the appropriate product to maximize energy efficiency in their designs.
