One of our top selling manufacturing product lines, Nexus Valves, has started a new Fast Facts video series on some of their products. They are short, to the point, and very helpful. Please take two minutes to watch them and you’ll be glad that you did!

The first one is on the Flamcovent Clean Smart air separator, which removes even the smallest microbubbles from the system water. Air and dirt in an installation cause problems like unnecessary breakdowns and extra wear or noise, but also lead to disruptions in the installation, less heat transfer and reduced pump performance. The result: higher energy consumption and an unreliable installation.

The Flamcovent Clean Smart air separator is virtually maintenance-free with a negligibly low flow resistance. The air and dirt separator can be incorporated in a variety of heating and cooling systems and in every desired direction. The absence of obstructions in the main flow ensures that clogging or blockage is prevented which guarantees superior and continuous operation over its service life. The air chamber of the separator is conical in shape leaving little chance of contamination. According to Nexus, the Flamcovent Clean Smart air separator offers 60% better performance compared to conventional separators.

Here’s the Nexus Fast Facts video, hosted by Nick Hallowell, featuring the Flamcovent Clean Smart air/dirt separator.

And, here’s an illustrated video of how the product works.

Nexus has some new, innovative products out that we wanted to share.

The Configur-A-Ball™ Customizable End Turns and Isolation

Nexus is excited to introduce this quarter turn isolation valve with multiple end connection options to be configured for easy piping connections.

The Nexus Valve Configur-A-Ball is a quarter turn isolation valve for hydronic heating and cooling systems. The unique feature of the Configur-A-Ball allows for multiple end connection options to be configured for easy piping connections and transitions into one singe compact valve for flexible use.

Selectable end connections in FNPT, SWT, NexPress, NexLock & Garden Hose make it the most versatile valve available in the market. Selectable pipe size ends can also configure eliminating additional adapters, additional field connection, saving both time and space.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Configur-A-Ball is pre-ordered with the connection that you choose and comes with a variety of accessories like a butterfly and extended handles as well as memory stops for full-height vapor barrier. It’s the most versatile valve on the market!

 

The UltraMatic UMNL / Lead-Free

Automatic Flow Limiting Valve

Introducing the UltraMatic™ UMNL lead-free, NSF/ ANSI 61 & 372 certified automatic flow limiting valve specifically designed for domestic potable water applications. The UMNL is one of the most unique devices in the industry with its non clogging design and field accessible cartridge. The cartridge is made of stainless steel and composite moving parts and has a control accuracy of ±5% across the control range. The UMNL comes standard with two pressure and temperature test plugs, and two FNPT end connections. All valves are 100% factory leak tested and contain less than 0.25% lead content by weight on wetted surfaces.

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?
