Mixing loop

Heating systems with various heat consumers and zones have varied demands for flow and temperature. Controlling the flow and temperature for the single type of consumer and/or one zone of the building is done with a mixing loop.

Heating systems with various heat consumers and zones have varied demands for flow and temperature. This is because the different consumers (in-floor heating, radiators, heating surfaces, etc) have different individual needs.

Controlling the flow and temperature for the single type of consumer and/or one zone of the building is done with a mixing loop. The flow and temperature will be the same or lower than in the mains supply. Due to variations in heat demand, a speed-controlled mixing loop pump is preferable. This makes it possible to obtain the maximum energy savings.

When using a 2-way control valve, the main pump will control pressure loss in the valve.
