Balancing Basics Circuit balancing valves (CBVs) have been used for many years as an effective means of ensuring occupant comfort in buildings. Heating and chilled water systems are designed to deliver the correct amount of heated or chilled fluid to every part of a building’s HVAC system. However, this ‘design flow’ is frequently not achieved without the use of balancing valves. CBVs are installed in heating and cooling systems to obtain the design flow rates through each circuit in the building. Using the mechanical engineer’s design drawings, the balancing contractor carefully adjusts...

Armstrong 1 2" – 2" Circuit Balancing Valves / Accurate and Fast Balancing The patent-pending design of Armstrong’s venturi style balancing valves produces significantly higher balancing accuracy than with conventional balancing valves. Outstanding accuracy of P measurement – from a minimum of 97% in the fully open position to 95% at nearly closed (1 2 turn open). Dramatically higher than the 84% published for competitive valves. / The process of balancing is faster and easier. Since P is measured across the valve’s fixed orifice (venturi), flow rate through the valve is directly...

Armstrong 21 2" – 12" Cast Iron Balancing Valves / Features and Benefits CBV-G (Straight) and CBV-A (Angle): sizes 21 2" – 12" / Innovative Convertible Design Armstrong 21 2" through 12" CBV’s are furnished in either angled or straight patterns, and can be conveniently changed to / either configuration at the site using standard tools and without any additional parts. This is possible because the innovative valve body has been split on a 45° angle, and is secured by four body bolts. Rotating one half of the body 180° produces a 90° change in flow direction. All Armstrong valves in this size...
