Hydronic balancing of the district heating network provided by the self-acting controllers through flow and differential pressure ensures adequate heating supply to all subscriber stations, reduces flow and heat loss in the district heating network and increases pump performance.Self-acting controls maintain constant differential pressure (Δp) across the control valves. This ensures the adequate pressure conditions assumed at control valves sizing and enables accurate temperature control and low return temperature, as well as prolonging the life of the control components.Low differential pressure (Δp) across the control valves provided by Danfoss self-acting controllers prevents cavitation and reduces noise emission in the district heating system.
To achieve optimum operational conditions for the district heating system, it is very important to provide the system with hydronic balancing.Main control functions:
