Simpler installation and commissioning for Royal Court with Marflow assemblies


Pre-fabricated valve assemblies from Marflow Hydronics have helped to speed up installation and commissioning of fan coil systems at two office blocks in the Royal Court development in Winchester. Marflow Governator assemblies, which have been developed for use with fan coils, were selected by M&E contractor Dodd Group after technical appraisals by the company’s in-house designers.

Royal Court is a new development on a brown field site near Winchester, comprising three 3-storey office blocks. Heating and cooling in two of the buildings is provided by four-pipe fan coil systems, linked to Marflow’s pre-fabricated assemblies. Each Governator assembly comprises a complete terminal valve arrangement for fan coils, including an automatic balancing valve, flushing bypass, isolation valves and Y pattern strainer.

“This was the first time I’ve worked with pre-fabricated assemblies and I’ve been very impressed. I would definitely use this approach again,” commented Alan Horton of Dodd Group.

In combining all of the necessary valves in a single compact assembly, the pre-fabricated approach greatly simplified the on-site installation and also helped to reduce commissioning.

“Marflow also provided comprehensive cross-referencing of the assemblies to specific fan coils which made it very easy for the fitters and virtually eliminated the opportunities for errors, so the commissioning went very smoothly,” Alan Horton concluded.
