FlowCon E-JUST Cartridges

Externally Adjustable Flow Rate Cartridges for FlowCon Valves

The E-JUST automatic flow rate cartridges ensure


that the design flow will not be exceeded regardless
of pressure fluctuations in the system.
Adjustment
By means of a specially designed key each cartridge
can be easily adjusted to one of 41 different flow rates.
Adjustment is managed externally without isolating
the valve or removing the cartridge from the system,
which means that the desired maximum flow rate
can be set while the system is operating.
The adjustment key turns the display mechanism and
the graduation on the handle of the cartridge shows
the setting indicated by two scales; one black reflecting full turns numbered 1 through 5, and one red at
the top reflecting tenths of full turns numbered 0
through 9. The number of turns reflects the flow rate
selected (please see the next 5 pages in this
brochure). The color of the pawl shows the selected
control range, e.g. white = 17-210 kPaD for the 20mm
black and green cartridges.
The FlowCon E-JUST cartridge is tamper-proof since
the adjustment is operated by means of the mentioned
special key. Further, the setting can be protected with
a colored top cover. The color of the cover and the
o-ring on the spindle under the cover indicates the
color and flow range of the cartridge, e.g. red for flow
rates between 0.113-0.352 l/sec, P 30-400 kPaD (grey
pawl). E-JUST cartridges size 40mm and 50mm will,
as standard, always be with a black cover and black
o-ring, as only one type per size is available.
Principle of Cartridge Operation
The principle of operation is shown below. P1 and P3
are system pressures. P1P3 is the total pressure drop
across the valve. P2 is set by the diaphragm acting

in reaction to P1 in the upper diaphragm chamber.


Interacting with the spring, P1P2 remains constant,
keeping a constant P across the orifice areas. The
result is a constant flow rate through the valve, independent of pressure fluctuations.
Below its pressure differential
range, it acts as a fixed orifice.
This allows a control valve
in the same circuit to
operate with valve authority
up to the specified flow rate.
Within the defined pressure differential
regulation range the pump supplies sufficient pressure to affect the spring and diaphragm in the cartridge.
In case the differential pressure is higher than the
defined max. P for the cartridge, the diaphragm may
be damaged.
Applications
The 20mm, 40mm and 50mm E-JUST cartridges can
be used with the following FlowCon valves:
20mm E-JUST:



- FlowCon A (DN15/20/25)
- FlowCon AB (DN15/20/25)
- FlowCon ABV1 (DN15/20/25)
- FlowCon EVC (DN15/20)
- FlowCon ABM1 (DN15/20/25)

40mm E-JUST:

- FlowCon AB (DN25/32)
- FlowCon ABV2 (DN25/32/40)
- FlowCon ABM2 (DN25/32/40)

50mm E-JUST:

- FlowCon AB (DN40/50)

The composite automatic flow rate cartridges ensure


that the design flow will not be exceeded regardless
of pressure fluctuations in the system.
Adjustment
By means of an Allen Wrench each cartridge can
be easily adjusted to one of eight different flow rates.
Adjustment is managed internally and therefore
the valve must be isolated and the cartridge removed
from the valve body, before adjusting is possible.

the cartridge shows the selected flow range and


the letter stamped on the cap of the cartridge
indicates the control range, e.g. Y-GREEN = 20-130
kPaD and flow rates from 0.0978-0.273 l/sec.
Applications and
Principle of Cartridge Operation are similar to
the ones for E-JUST cartridge.

The groove at the bottom of the cartridge indicates


the selected flow rate setting, numbered 1 through 8
(please see below and previous page). The color of

Stainless Steel Cartridges


Pre-Set Flow Rate Cartridges for FlowCon Valves

The stainless steel flow rate cartridges ensure that


the design flow will not be exceeded regardless of
pressure fluctuations in the system. Since the cartridge
is factory pre-set, the flow rate cannot be adjusted
on the cartridge. The advantage of this type of cartridge is that it works at lower pressure differentials
and with higher flows.

Within operating pressure differential range, the


effective open orifice area of the cartridge is automatically adjusted to the point where the specified
flow rate will be delivered (as the pressure differential increases, the open area closes and as it decreases, the area opens).
When the pressure differential range is exceeded,
the valve again becomes a fixed orifice device. This
ensures that no part of the system is starved or
shut down.

Principle of Operation
Below the stainless steel cartridges pressure differential range it acts as a fixed orifice.

Automatic versus Manual

Balancing of HVAC Hydronic Systems


HVAC hydronic systems primarily use chilled water
and hot water as the medium of heat transfer. The
proper operation of the hydronic system depends upon
the proper distribution (balance) of this water to all
parts of the system under design load, as well as
all part load conditions.
Automatic balancing has numerous advantages over
manual balancing, especially in variable speed pumping systems.
Automatic limit of the flow to maximum design
flow.
Fewer valves required.
No labor for balancing. Minimal labor for
verification.
Building renovation or extensions does not
require hydronic system rebalance.
Better flow balance accuracy under all load and
flow conditions.
No coil will starve when saving money by
variable speed pumping.

Systems utilizing automatic flow control valves require


far fewer balancing valves than systems that are manually balanced. The below figure shows a schematic of a
system serving 18 heat transfer (heating or cooling) coils.
The manual system, shown on the left, requires a
total of 27 valves whereas the automatic system, on the
right, requires only 18 because it does not require the
larger and more expensive partner balancing valves
(shown in red) on the risers and the branches.
As each terminal unit automatic flow control valve is
self-balancing over a wide differential pressure control
range, the flow through the risers and the branches
is also automatically controlled (balanced) without the
use of additional valves.
The elimination of the manual partner balancing valves on the mains, risers and branches in turn eliminates the head loss through them. Hence, the system
head loss is reduced which lowers the pump brake
horsepower (BHP).

More effective adjustment.


No plumbing restrictions.
