Acorn Controls is pleased to announce TempFlow™, our first thermostatic zone valve for commercial and industrial applications. TempFlow™ overcomes a problem that is common with the use of circuit setters for zone balancing systems.
TempFlow™ has a superior volume potential over other zone balancing systems because many thousands of circuit setters are currently installed and failing to properly maintain temperature in domestic hot water system zones. Facilities are spending too much for routine, yet short-lived zone balancing services. Circuit setters users will enthusiastically welcome an obviously superior solution.
Most design engineers are unaware of the thermostatic alternative to the circuit setter for zone balancing. TempFlow™ has already been specified and welcomed by engineers who previewed the product firsthand!
The challenge of effective zone balancing is so common that engineers are designing domestic hot water systems to eliminate or minimize the use of zones. As a result, they are giving up the energy efficiency and operation advantages that zone design provides.
The Acorn Command Stations are 100% factory tested and utilize the MV17 valve (or valves) which are IAPMO certified, at the published minimum flow, to exceed the performance requirements set forth in the ASSE 1017 standard. Acorn Controls Command Stations are designed to reduce the potential for improper piping, missed connections and/or failing to include key system control components that are common with contractor “design-as-you-build” types of installation. Acorn Controls Command Stations are designed to reduce the potential for improper piping, missed connections and/or failing to include key system control components that are common with contractor “design-as-you-build” types of installation. Acorn Controls Command Stations have a much smaller footprint and minimize material waste on site. For any future troubleshooting that may become necessary, a Command Station ensures you have quick and easy access to all key components needed for the process.
The Acorn Controls Automatic Temperature Monitor (ATM) is a microprocessor based controller ideal for sensing and alerting of abnormal temperature conditions. Target applications for this device are in health care and nursing facilities but can be used anywhere a temperature alarm is required.
