During the past two years, more than 10,000 Motorized Control Valves, MCVs, from Danfoss have been installed around the world to control a large variety of district energy, central heating and HVAC solutions.

The MCVs allow precise control of temperature levels in any heating or cooling application, ensuring maximum comfort to the end-users and substantial energy savings to the building owner. The high reliability of the valves protects against thermal and system overload.

Now Danfoss offers a complete overview of the many MCVs available and optimized for different applications, including heat pumps, solar applications, passive cooling, chillers, boilers, and fan coil units. The product range features regular and pressure relieved valves for water, steam and glycol solutions.

The MCVs are all made from durable, high-quality materials for long service life and low maintenance costs. The valves are designed as compact units with snap & click connection for fast, flexible and easy installation.


Did you know that?
The control capabilities of MCVs can handle split characteristics for DHW applications using heat exchangers as well as linear and logarithmic characteristics. This means that even the most difficult control requirements in district heating applications can be met, while still providing instantaneous hot water.
