         New range of PIBCVs can reduce building energy consumption by 15-20 percent
         Replacing traditional valves with PIBCVs enables simplified product selection, improved hydronic flow
         Solution streamlines operations for building owners while improving occupant comfort

ANDOVER, Mass. – April 10, 2017 – Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today announced the debut of Pressure Independent Balancing and Control Valves (PIBCVs) in North America for improved valve functionality and temperature control in buildings. The automatic balancing valves help create a more stabilized building environment by controlling the pressure and flow of HVAC systems under all occupancy variations and seasonal weather, which improves occupant comfort. Schneider Electric now offers a complete range of PIBCVs to fit a wide variety of applications in building environments and reduce energy consumption by 15 to 20 percent.
 
Traditional control valves often allow for a higher capacity flow rate than is needed. This discrepancy can lead to overflow and abrupt temperature fluctuations in a building’s HVAC system, resulting in increased occupant complaints and wasted energy costs for building owners and facility managers. PIBCVs provide a stable hydronic flow independent of changes in system pressure in heating and cooling circuits, creating a more manageable system for facility managers as well as occupants.
 
The benefits of PIBCVs over traditional control valves include:
         Improved hydronic control;
         Improved system balancing;
         Reduced installation time;
         Less commissioning time;
         Reduced energy consumption; and
         Simplified product selection and installation.

Facility managers using PIBCVs can achieve both simplified operations and high system performance. Additionally, when PIBCVs are fitted with an actuator, they replace the manual balancing and motorized control valves with a single valve, thus reducing installation costs. Building owners experience cost savings through reduced installation costs and energy savings, while occupants enjoy stable temperature settings.
 
Reliable Controls Schneider Electric’s PIBCVs are currently available in North America. For more information, please contact your local Schneider Electric representative.
