Altecnic 1" Balancing Valve With Flow Meter - 132602

Balancing valves are required in heating and chilled water systems to help achieve the correct flow rate through the designated circuit in the system, calculated by the system designer.

  • £111.46

The system designer calculates the required flow rate for each heat emitter or cooling coil to ensure a comfortable room temperature is maintained.

Balancing valves, when regulated, force water from the most favoured to the least favoured circuits to achieve the design flow rate confirmed by measuring the actual flow rate.

A correctly balanced system is essential to achieve the design specification, thermal comfort and minimum energy consumption.


The Altecnic 132 balancing valve has a flow meter, for direct reading of the regulated flow rate, housed in a bypass on the valve body which is normally isolated during normal operation.

The flow meter allows fast and easy balancing of the circuit without the need to attach a monometer or differential pressure gauge.

Supplied with female parallel threaded ends complying with BS EN ISO 228-1.
