Honeywell is pleased to announce a new range of 2-way and 3-way ball valves suitable for a wide range of heating, ventilating and air conditioning applications. Energy-efficient building services and equipment require valves that provide high flow rates, accurate control characteristics and tight shut off against high differential pressures. The last five years have seen a significant increase in usage of ball valves in the UK — with corresponding improvements in control performance, flexibility of installation and serviceability. The Honeywell range of ball valves and actuators has been designed to maximise the key features required to give specifiers, installers and users the most cost-effective solution without compromising quality or performance. Fan-coil units, unit heaters, perimeter emitters, water-sourced heat pumps, VAV (variable air volume) and AHUs (air-handling units) are examples of the wide range of applications suitable for the new Honeywell ball valves and actuators. Reduced energy loss in modern building construction and more exacting regulations have effectively reduced the average size of HVAC plant and equipment, with a corresponding reduction in pipe sizes a...
