Balancing domestic heating systems just got easier – and faster – with the launch of the RAS-B2 Danfoss Dynamic ValveTM. Unlike other TRVs, which only act as flow limiters, this latest addition to the Danfoss TRV family features a differential pressure controller. This ensures that pressure drops over the valve remain at a constant level, so flow through the valve is maintained at both full (winter) and partial (autumn/spring) loads. Additionally, pre-setting of the desired flow is done on the valve, rather than on the lockshield, which it is estimated could save installers up to two hours of valuable working time. Thanks to this innovative product, heating installers can now make sure a system is correctly balanced in a fraction of the time it would normally take.
The new RAS-B2 is specially designed by Danfoss to enable fast and simple hydronic dynamic balancing and to make life even easier this pioneering TRV is also featured on the Danfoss Installer App. Using this time-saving tool, installers can calculate, record and document the correct flow and subsequent setting for each radiator on their smartphone or tablet.
Currently the only 100% pressure independent valve demonstrating a constant flow in all conditions, the Danfoss RAS-B2 ensures each radiator receives an equal flow of hot water. As well as optimising end-user comfort, this means that the return temperature is lower (condensing boiler efficiency is best at below a return temperature of 55o C) and the pump can run at a lower speed.
Summing up, Gareth Ash, Marketing Manager at Danfoss says: “By launching the RAS-B2 Dynamic Valve now Danfoss is offering installers a simple and future-proof solution that will satisfy their customers’ needs today and comply with forthcoming regulations to make existing UK homes more energy efficient as we move towards the ultimate goal of Net Zero in 2050.”
