We wanted to share a case story with you that involved one of the popular product lines we carry, Nexus Valves. We hope sharing this case story of how they solved a noise issue at a local University will give you some ideas on solutions your can provide your clients.
Recently Nexus Valve and one of their manufacturers’ representatives, Faco, were highlighted in HVAC/P magazine for a project that used the Dynamic, a combined pressure independent flow limiter and control valve, to solve a noise issue at a local university. The Dynamic, along with custom valve packages, were combined with the NexLok push-fit connection system to provide a fast, clean installation for the partnered contractors.
In the case story, you’ll see that Ball State University had an opportunity to renovate one of its popular residence halls,which is an eight-story building housing 450 students and features a computer lab, fitness room, lounge area, and laundry rooms. The building was 46 years old and residents were complaining of loud noise associated with the water pressure.
The University turned to Nexus Valve for a solution with the issue. Nexus Valve brought in their local manufacturer’s representative Faco to help solve the challenge and use this project as a training opportunity for their Dynamic Valves.
The result was to suggest a pressure independent control valve combined with a thermal motoric actuator to keep constant water pressure,which significantly reduces the noise level.
Not only did the solution they designed using the Nexus Valve system solve the noise problem, but when it was combined with new technology, the tool-less industrial strength Nex-Lok push-fit connection system, it allowed for a fast, clean installation that avoided damages in tight spaces. In fact, overall the contractor felt it ended up being an 80% faster install. Wouldn’t that be nice?
