Meet the New Hero from Danfoss
Danfoss is introducing HERO - a new time, cost and space saving Flushing Bypass Manifold solution featuring all the main components needed to install, flush, balance, control and maintain terminal units in HVAC systems with variable flow.
as a pre-assembled and fully pressure tested connection set, HERO is ready for fast
and easy installation onto terminal units such as Fan Coil Units and Chilled Beams.
According to a cost-analysis conducted by Danfoss, HERO can achieve a 23%
saving in time and cost just during installation compared with an on-site
Danfoss HERO consists
of a Bypass H-Piece, AB-QM Pressure Independent Control Valve (PICV), Shut-Off
Valves, Strainer with Integrated Drain and a Measuring Station – all in one
compact assembly. Once installed, HERO creates optimal hydronic balance,
simplifies system flushing to the required BSRIA BG29/2012 standards and also allows
measurement of water flow to detect problems such as blockages in the system.
The AB-QM PICV
sits at the heart of the new Danfoss HERO, providing perfect balance and
control in the HVAC system. A proven solution around the world, Danfoss’s AB-QM
keeps a constant differential pressure across the control valve independent of
pressure fluctuations in the system, preventing overflow and reduced efficiency
of the thermal unit.
Thanks to its
compact dimensions and a 90o angle between all service features
(draining, setting and measuring) the new Danfoss HERO ensures easy access
under any installation condition, even where space is restricted. With centres of 40mm (DN10 and 15) and 80mm
(DN20 and 25) HERO is simple to install, including above a Fan Coil Unit’s condensate
drip tray when required. Selecting the
right HERO for a project is based on the flow rate of the application and is made
quick and easy using Danfoss’s design flow calculator.
Danfoss to offer even more choice, HERO can be matched with a wide range of
actuators, from simple on/off products to the high accuracy Danfoss NovoCon® digital actuator with
Summing up, Danfoss’ Marketing Director, Bjorn
Sejr Nielsen, says: “HERO is the first fully integrated Flushing Bypass
Manifold from Danfoss and provides the perfect partner for terminal
installations. This latest addition to our range offers a compact and time
saving solution with a host of industry-leading features and lifetime benefits
for HVAC system designers, contractors, engineers and end-users.”
