Honeywell Q5024 Retrofit Globe Valve Linkage “Make Market” Update

HW_NewLinkageThe pricing for the new Q5024 linkages and accessories was inaccurately labeled in the recent product announcement bulletin. The pricing links in the bulletin 15-0004 referenced information that listed the pricing as “MADE market” when it should have been “MAKE market”.

To get an accurate listing of MAKE market products, download the Dynamic Custom Price Book on the B2B. This has been updated to accurately reflect the MAKE status of each part. Click here for instructions on how to download the Custom Price Book.

Introducing Honeywell’s Q50204 Retrofit Globe Valve Linkage

HW_NewLinkageHoneywell is pleased to introduce their new Q5024 globe valve retrofit linkage. This linkage allows you to use Honeywell Direct Coupled Actuators (DCAs) to retrofit most manufacturers’ globe valves in the field, with no valve disassembly required. This linkage is easy to install and the wide variety of collar combinations fit most of your globe valve retrofit jobs. Save money and time by replacing old electrical or pneumatic actuators with reliable Honeywell DCAs. View as a PDF.

Overview: Single or dual actuator linkage options with a torque range of 44 to 600 lb-in and wide close-off capabilities enable you to retrofit most manufacturer’s globe valves.
Upgrade most ½”- 6″ globe valve installations in the field
Pull existing globe valves into your Building Management system by using Honeywell actuators
Quick and simple installation – no valve disassembly required
Replaces Q5022 previously used with 4″ – 6″ VGF valves
Quick and easy selection using the Fast Track tool.
Variety of bonnet adapters and kits to fit most manufacturer’s globe valves

Easy To Order: Honeywell’s easy-to-use Fast Track program assists with selecting and configuring your entire valve and actuator project. You can also use the Honeywell Fast Track Tool to select the correct linkage and bonnet adapters for your valve retrofits. Or, use the selection table from product data sheet 32-00020 (Table 3). If you do not have the exact part number or valve size, order globe valve kits (listed in Table 5 of product data sheet 32-00020) that include a variety of bonnet adapters for linkage with ½” to 6″ globe valves made by most manufacturers.

More Fast TrackTM Improvements:
Retrofit Linkage addition
Search by Honeywell or competitor valve
Select applicable retrofit linkage and bonnet adapter
Old Project – New Pricing
Fast Track will recognize if previously generated valve schedule contains current year’s pricing and allow the user to update pricing if desired.

Belimo Retrofit Solutions

Valves and actuators play an integral part in the proper functioning of HVAC systems.  When properly installed and functioning correctly they boost the performance and efficiency of integrated building technology. But like with any equipment, there comes a time when valves and actuators need to be replaced for a variety of reasons.

Damaged linkages and/or actuators lead to poor functioning of the HVAC system, which results in loss of energy efficiency, consumer comfort, time, and labor. Replacing a valve along with the actuator, or trying to determine how to fix an airside linkage, is not always a sensible solution. Taking a system off-line to replace various components is not only laborious, it’s expensive. Facilities can lose thousands of dollars a day during maintenance shut-down. With Belimo’s retrofit solutions, this problem goes away. Valve and damper applications can be quickly and conveniently restored without any interruption in service. In fact, entire systems can often be updated in a day. A poorly functioning or even non-functioning system can be transformed into a high functioning, more efficient system.

Belimo provides many retrofits that are compatible with all major control systems, so there is no need to replace other system controls. MFT Technology is also available and can be re-programmed to suit your controller needs with just one MFT model actuator.

If it’s time to replace any actuators or valves in your building or plant, consider a retrofit solution from Belimo.  Someone from Stromquist, along with Belimo, will be glad to assist you with the change.

Mounting a Belimo TF Series Actuator to a Belimo Ball Valve

While I was in the Orlando office the other day Pat Marley took a call from a client asking how to mount his Belimo TF series actuator to his Belimo ball valve using the WTF mounting adaptor kit. Sadly the Belimo WTF mounting adaptor kit comes with no instructions on how to undertake this proceedure. Pat, being Pat using the speaker phone walked the client through the mounting proceedures and was kind enough to walk through the installation again for my camera also so we could present this article to you… our clients.

I hope this series of photographs takes the mystery out of installing this Belimo actuator to the Belimo ball valve. At Stromquist and Company we will continue to take the “MYSTERY” out of controls for you. If there are any more controls mysteries we can solve for you give us a call in Atlanta at 1-800-241-9471 or in Orlando at 1-800-638-7829.
