TROX says its TVE range of flow controllers for variable air volume (VAV) systems is the most energy-efficient to date, accommodating lower airflow velocities than any other circular VAV.
Advanced technology for measuring airflow is built within the damper blade, removing the need for a separate flow grid and allowing airflow measurement in both directions. The recently expanded range is also said to incorporate numerous design features for faster, more cost-effective installation and easy cleaning benefits for long life with minimised maintenance.
Andrew Fletcher, product technical manager – control units, said: “With the ever-growing concern around global warming, everyone is striving to reduce energy usage. One of the best ways to do this within HVAC systems is by reducing ventilation during idle times. This is made possible by the large 1:25 turn down ratio achievable with the new TROX TVE range, measuring flows down to 0.5 m/s.”
Neil Addison, managing director (sales & operations) TROX UK, said: “The TVE range is part of a wider portfolio of TROX solutions which includes air handling units, chilled beams, fan coils, grilles/diffusers, and specialist air management systems for laboratories. Our ability to analyse the system as a whole helps us to identify the most effective ways of driving down overall energy consumption. In the drive towards net zero, this holistic approach to product design is key.”
