Although average heat demands at a hospital are enormous, LoadTracker CHP has been used successfully on specific upgrading projects in hospitals. Examples of these are single specialist wards, a neonatal intensive care unit and a cancer treatment centre.

Where adjoining valves for individual terminal units are preferred, SAV can offer Monolink assemblies. These incorporate a strainer and bypass line to assist with commissioning flush. Flow balancing is by actuated 2-port valve and measurement binder points. Centre-line spacing is set to suit the connections required by the exact model of terminal unit. Monolinks can fit in tight corners, come pretested for tightness and are easy to install.
Energy meters can make information available to the main hospital metering/ monitoring centre. Regular updating of the data logger enables facilities managers to keep a close eye on usage patterns.
Valves, Fittings and Flexible Piping
Hospitals can be expected to be sensitive to the issues of leakage and resulting contamination. CIM ball valves from SAV provide a high integrity safeguard. They have mirror-finish ball forgings, 15º blind angle after passing point of closure and top-fed stems to prevent long-term vulnerability to wear. Other types of CIM valves all have advanced design features and are made to excellent quality. The CIM factory makes over 100,000 valves per day, yet still manages to keep annual returns due to defects to less than 0.01%!
