Most of us are unfamiliar with the purpose of control valves. They are a key component in any HVAC system, controlling the stream of liquids and turning an irregular input pressure into a frequent, regular output pressure.


What are Control valves used for?

When energy is not effectively transferred to a boiler’s heating coils, the water temperature will not be adequate to allow the boiler to condense. It’s important to select the correct control valve to reduce the flow measure to minimise the equipment needed to cool or heat the water. In industrial, commercial and residential areas, the balancing valve allows HVAC coolers and boilers to ensure the correct amount of cool or hot air travels to all parts of the building.

Each heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit is designed to produce the desired amount of comfort in every room of an industrial, commercial, or residential building. This needs to be achieved with limited energy (while still being effective) to minimise operational costs. To achieve this, it’s important to make sure the water temperature is controlled and balanced.


What are the advantages of using control valves?

Valves are high performing and easy to maintain.

They are also durable and can perform well in a range of different conditions.

Control valves can be used in a range of industries, including power, gas and steel.

Control and balancing valves make the installation of your HVAC straightforward.

They will also reduce the working costs of the whole system working efficiently by ensuring the correct amount of flow to each coil, decreasing the need for ongoing service.


Types of valves we offer at Masterflow

At Masterflow, we offer two categories of valves:

The Oventrop balancing valve – Oventrop is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of valves for heating and cooling. These control all HVAC difficulties, including inadequate room temperatures, noisy airflow, overheating problems, high energy consumption, and much more.

The general-purpose industrial valve and suction diffuser – these diffusers are flow-straightening fittings for all commercial, industrial and residential systems that provide heating, ventilation and/or air conditioning.


Who we are

Masterflow is a well-established and trusted pump supplier that services the HVAC industry nationwide. We supply our clients with technical advice, cost-effective solutions and repair services for a wide range of equipment.
