The Pettinaroli PICV is the only ‘equal percentage’ PICV now available in India and is matched to a terminal’s Coil Power curve to provide high quality control and balancing  at the FCU and AHU level. The PICVs will be endorsed under the Advance name in India, with full technical support and warranty.

We have already complemented our manual balancing valves, the pioneering product for the balancing requirements of the Indian Air-Conditioning Industry for more than 25 years, with the launch last year of large size balancing valves up to 48”, under a unique patent pending design. We now provide a complete solution for today’s discerning and demanding HVAC customers with products for the small and large projects, from a single source.

In order to ensure our customers have complete solutions, our valves are provided with a scientific basis for Flow Balancing in a system with database. The valve can be set in pre-regulated flow conditions for Tamper-Proof positioning by a Built-in Locking Device. The Valves are extensively used in HVAC systems and other process applications wherever balancing is required.


Product Focus: Large Sized Triple Offset Butterfly Valve.

Demand seems to be growing for large sized valves in the Oil & Gas, Water, Power & Refineries sectors across the world. This is in sync with the growing magnitude and sophistication of today’s projects. Keeping in pace with the client expectations,  the Advance Valves range and experience continues to demonstrate the technical performance desired. We have recently completed the execution of the 66” inch Triple Offset Metal Seated Butterfly valves for a Client in the Middle East.
