VIR launch its new 9900 valve series of dynamic balancing valves. The innovative linear shape reduce to minimum pressure drops not required for flow regulation reducing the power required to the pump. Union ends allow an easy disassembling of the valve for mounting of the cartridge after line flushing or eventual later change of cartridge with new one suitable for different flow. Test points (optional) allow to verify cartridge is actually working on its proper differential pressure range.

10/10/06 - VIR receives the INNOVATION AWARD on HVAC & R 2006

Artic PP ball valves for low temperature. Innovation Award on HVAC & R 2006

 

"ARTIC", our polypropylene valve series specifically studied for use with low temperature water, was presented with the INNOVATION AWARD on HVAC & R 2006 by the magazine "Costruire Impianti", an authority in this field. The prestigious competition, involving important Italian companies each year, has the objective of identifying the most innovative ideas regarding HVAC.
With its elastic PP body, ARCTIC is able to absorb the increase in volume caused by water when it freezes, as well as returning back to its original shape and seal when the temperature returns back to normal.
News_0610-03 News_0610-04 News_0610-04 This year the award was presented on October 10th at the Triennale di Milano and was handed personally to our Chairman Ing. Savino Rizzio.
