Leminar Air Conditioning Co. in association with Frese, Denmark, organized technical seminars in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha on the 5th, 6th and 7th of May 2014. Over 800 participants attended the seminars, which addressed the challenges currently being faced by both designers and installers, with particular focus on the design of energy efficient systems and the different types and benefits of pressure independent control valves.
The core focus of the seminar was mainly on the key importance in the handling of Pressure Independent Control Valves (PICVs) in their execution of 100% control valve authority and to highlight the benefits of automatic flow control. The seminar also stressed the importance in the usage of control valves, which serve as a key solution to the burning issue of low delta T syndrome that is spread across the GCC and specifically in projects that consist of district cooling plants.
Present at the seminar was Navin Valrani, CEO of Leminar, Pramodh Idicheria, General Manager of Leminar, and from Frese was, Nathan Cooke, Global Sales & Marketing Director, Mathew Dunk, General Sales Manager and Jens Johansen, OEM Project Manager.
“With the dramatic uptake in demand for PICV technology, designers and installers are faced with an ever increasing choice of PICVs. As a manufacturer with over 25 years’ experience in the application of dynamic balancing technology, Frese can offer extensive support and advice to customers helping them to make an informed decision about the most appropriate solution for their project requirements” said Mathew Dunk, G.S.M of Frese.
A vast amount of knowledge and experience has been gathered at Frese since 1988, when the first Frese dynamic balancing valve was patented, not only about the physical product, but also about the application. The OPTIMA Compact range, Frese’s second generation of PICVs, is widely specified and has been installed on many prestigious projects around the world. The innovative design utilizes patented technology allowing for full stroke modulation at all flow settings for optimal indoor climate control, and a compact valve housing for ease of installation.“Supplying a product that is fit for purpose and of the highest quality is of great importance to Frese, however we feel that the ability to help customers through our extensive application knowledge of PICVs is second to none and positively differentiates us from the competition” he added.
