Phoenix Controls systems are designed specifically for the most complex critical airflow control use. Our field personnel have many years of experience and training working with Phoenix Controls and the associated mechanical/electrical systems. Today’s post provides a deeper understanding of Phoenix Controls, their process and their valves…
About Phoenix Controls
Your business demands precision airflow control for critical spaces. It is a matter of safety, pure and simple. Safety for world-class research laboratories. Safety for collaboration in the world of emerging sciences. Safety for patients and staff in state-of-the-art hospitals. For your critical room control system needs, Phoenix Controls is simply the best in the business.
For more than 25 years, the name Phoenix Controls has meant peace of mind for thousands of corporations around the globe. Their customers know the quality and reliability of the Phoenix Controls venturi valve and control system is second to none. Yes, we know safety is the primary reason customers choose Phoenix, but today, there are even more reasons to design our valves into projects. Their innovative airflow control solutions provide new ways to save energy and reduce the cost of maintaining HVAC systems.
As building airflow control systems become more complex, their maintenance costs rise. Phoenix Controls delivers the value of an energy efficient critical room control system that requires virtually no maintenance for the entire life of the building.
Accel® II venturi valves are built and characterized at Phoenix Controls’ headquarters to ensure quality workmanship that reflects years of Phoenix Controls engineering advancements. This high-performance, airflow metering device is the foundation of every airflow control system they provide and is backed by a five-year warranty. Its reliable performance has been proven in a wide range of critical environments, including laboratories, Vivariums, pharmaceutical clean rooms and healthcare facilities.
When a building has critical airflow control requirements, testing and balancing (TAB) can be difficult and time-consuming. Without the right device, you may find yourself doing it over and over. These redundant efforts are eliminated by installing the Accel II venturi valve. Its true pressure-independent performance and factory characterization saves time and money by reducing TAB time and ensures stability in room pressurization. TAB time is also reduced because every valve is factory characterized with a 48-point flow curve on NIST-certified valve characterization station at their US headquarters. This means that as soon as the valves are installed, most of the system commissioning can be completed before the fans are ever turned on.
Additionally, long-term stability is assured with true pressure-independent performance. Once the building system is running, conditions will change and so will system static pressures. The Accel II venturi valve’s unparalleled pressure-independent performance pays dividends with constant airflow control accuracy and proper room pressurization. This high-performance, airflow-metering device is the foundation of every airflow control system we provide whether it’s Celeris, Theris, Traccel, or Analog.
