Triatek’s Universal Valve Module provides facility managers and engineers increased configuration options for renovations or new installations of pressure control systems in critical care environments. When mated to a Triatek Venturi Valve, the UVM equipped Venturi Valve can be controlled by any controller providing a 0-10V output or a Modbus connection, and can therefore be used on both LON and BACnet BAS networks. As a result, the company says engineers and facility managers now have more options when designing a system since controllers and valves will now be able to communicate irrespective of the manufacturer of the controller. No longer are engineers and facility managers confined to use a specific controller given the Venturi valve. Triatek’s Universal Valve Module can only be obtained as an option to the Triatek Venturi Valve which comes in 8-, 10-, 12- and 14-in sizes. Triatek Venturi Valves can also be specified with Heresite or Kynar coating and can be ordered with either an aluminum or stainless steel shell. Shut-off and low-pressure valves are also available with the Universal Valve Module.
