The ABV Automatic Balancing Valves maintain a constant airflow volume in HVAC applications. The engineered damper blade is calibrated to automatically adjust to varying pressures using physics ( not electricity ) giving the ABV true pressure independence.
Airflow Balancing Valves have been very popular in Europe for several years, and we are proud to be the first to build this type of product in the United States and the first to design the product specifically to meet the needs of American applications.
ABV Sizes Available • Airflow Range
Nominal 4" Diameter • 25 to 130 CFM
Nominal 5" Diameter • 25 to 130 CFM
Nominal 6" Diameter • 50 to 275 CFM
Note: Airflow range determined through +/- 10% of average airflow over 0.2" to 1" W.C.

Precise and automatic airflow regulation in supply or exhaust ventilation systems in any residential or commercial building.
OEM Applications such as chilled beams, Fan Coil Units, PTAC units, centralized fan systems, fresh/make-up air systems, and HRV/ERV’s.
Suitable for application in temperatures ranging from 25º to 150ºF (-4º to 65ºC).
Any HVAC applications with a static pressure between 0.2
and 2.0 inches w.c.
Example shown is a high-rise application.
Traditional Balancing can’t respond to system changes
Too much ventilation = wasted energy
Too little ventilation = bad air quality
As heat rises in buildings during winter months the ventilation rates can more than double from “Stack Effect”
The excess air forces the fans to freewheel
Stale air from lower floors can contaminate upper floors
Result: Bad Air Quality & Wasted Energy
Use of the ABV creates an “auto balancing” system
An auto balanced system assures correct ventilation rates regardless of system changes
