ControlTrends picked this Belimo video on a Twitter feed from Lars van der Haegen, new CEO of the Belimo Group, commenting on Take Your Daughter to Work Day – Learn about all the great product features and benefits as Dad shows off his newest invention, the Belimo ZoneTight zone valve. As Lars says, “Watch this outstanding example of a Launch Video for a new Zone valve. This Video was created by the Marketing Team of Belimo Americas. Belimo is the global market leader for HVAC actuators and control valves. B2B videos do not have to be boring!”
Belimo’s engineering prowess and innovation set the global standards in comfort, energy efficiency, and safety solutions. This video, previewing the Belimo Valve Test Lab, gives insight as to how such unparalleled standards are set and maintained.
Belimo’s performance testing verifies that our products comply with industry and trade association specifications, including ANSI, EN, IEC, ISA, MSS, and VDI/VDE. Our testing is performed with ISO 9000 traceability.
Our performance testing provides assurance to our customers that they’ve made the right decision by choosing Belimo. Flow testing includes: equal percentage curve, pressure independent curve, and rangeability. Shell testing is performed for threaded and flanged valves up to 5,000 psi. Automated systems for flow testing improve accuracy, precision, repeatability, and efficiency. Our lab’s flow testing capacity is 6,000 GPM (with the largest pump capable of providing 3,000 GPM).
Our durability testing involves subjecting valves to 100,000 cycles at worst-case temperature and differential pressure. We have the capacity to test over 240 valves ranging from DN 10 to DN 150, with a maximum media temperature of 302°F (150°C). With 12,000 GPM durability testing capacity, we could fill one Olympic size swimming pool every hour or one standard above-ground pool every minute. We also perform Long Life testing, where the valve is subjected to application conditions for months to even years at a time.
Congratulations to Belimo! The Belimo Energy Valve was chosen by the world-wide ControlTrends Community as the winner of the coveted Energy Savings Product of the Year. Belimo’s Gary Weber accepted the award at the 2014 ControlTrends Awards event in Chicago. The Belimo Energy Valve is a pressure independent valve, that measures and manages coil energy by using an embedded electromagnetic or ultrasonic flow meter, along with supply and return water temperature sensors.
The Energy Valve also has the patented Power Control and Belimo Delta T Manager logics built-in that monitors coil performance and optimizes the available energy of the coil by maintaining the Delta T. In addition to the standard analog signal and feedback wiring, it communicates its data to the Building Management System via BACnet MS/TP or BACnet IP. The built-in web server collects up to 13 months of data that can be downloaded to external tools for further optimization. Some of these features contribute to LEED points.

Do you want to always have a replacement globe valve actuator in stock or on your truck? Not just any actuator but one of the best valve actuators in the world? An actuator that will work on 98% of the HVAC control globe valves on the planet.
You might be thinking that would be great but the investment is way to high, I can’t afford to keep 20 different actuators and linkage kits just in case I need a replacement valve actuator.
What if you could stock one or two actuators and a handful of low cost linkages that would easily adapt a high quality Belimo Actuator to virtually any commercial globe valve? Life would be good ! You could save time and money by not having to inventory and learn multiple valve actuators.
Check out this video from the innovative team at Belimo to see how easy it is to replace a globe valve actuator.
Additionally,the Belimo New Generation Globe Valve Actuators and Retrofit Linkages offer greater power and flexibility. Engineered to suit a broad range of HVAC applications, both the New Generation Actuators and Retrofit Linkages are highly adaptable making selection, installation, and long-term service worry-free. New force ranges from 112 lbf to 337 lbf and broader travel ranges from .6″ (15 mm) to 2″ (50 mm).
Introduction to Retrofitting Globe Valves: In this free Belimo webinar, you will gain an understanding of how to retrofit globe valves. The New Generation Globe Valve Actuators incorporate not only strength, but flexibility too. Engineered to suit a broad range of HVAC applications, these new actuators and retrofit linkages are highly adaptable making selection, installation and service hassle-free.
