Cavitation

Cavitation accelerates wear on the valve plug and seat, and also results in undesirable noise. Cavitation can be avoided by not exceeding the differential pressure shown in the flow diagram on page 4, and by adhering to the static pressures shown below. To avoid cavitation in chilled water circuits ensure sufficient counter pressure at valve outlet, e.g. by a throttling valve after the heat exchanger. Select the pressure drop across the valve at maximum according to the 80 C curve in the flow diagram below.

Notes Engineering
In open circuits, there is a risk of valve plug seizing caused by scale deposits. Thus, use only the most powerful actuator SKB... for these applications. Additionally, periodic actuation (twice or three times per week) must be planned. With closed and open circuits always use a strainer upstream of the valve to increase the valve's functional safety. Ensure cavitation-free flow, refer to page 5. To ensure the reliability of the valve, we recommend the fitting of a strainer at the valve inlet in closed and open circuits. For media below 0 C, use the electric ASZ6.5 stem heating element to prevent the valve stem from freezing in the sealing gland. For safety reasons, the stem heating element has been designed for AC 24 V / 30 W operating voltage. . .

Mounting

Both valve and actuator can easily be assembled at the mounting location. Neither special tools nor adjustments are required. The valve is supplied with Mounting Instructions 4 319 9563 0.

Commissioning

Commission the valve only if the actuator has been mounted correctly.
Valve stem retracts: Valve stem extends: through-port II I opens, through-port II I closes, bypass III closes bypass III opens

Maintenance
VXG41... valves require no maintenance.

Warning

When doing service work on the valve / actuator: Deactivate the pump and turn off the power supply Close the shuttoff valves Fully reduce the pressure in the piping system and allow pipes to completely cool down If necessary, disconnect the electrical wires. Before putting the valve into operation again, make certain the actuator is correctly fitted.

Stem sealing gland

The glands can be exchanged without removing the valve, provided the pipes are depressurized and cooled off and the stem surface is unharmed, refer to Order. If the stem is damaged in the gland range, replace the entire stem-plug-unit. Contact your local office or branch.

Disposal

Before disposal the valve must be dismantled and separated into its various constituent materials. Legislation may demand special handling of certain components, or it may be sensible from a ecological point of view.

Current local legislation must be observed.
