How does AFC Technology work?

  • The flow controller is set to the calculated flow value by turning the number cap with the adjusting wrench. If the flow at the valve increases, the sleeve is moved by the increasing pressure, thereby continuously limiting the flow to the set value.
  • The set flow is never exceeded.
  • If the flow rate drops below the set flow rate value, a spring pushes the sleeve back into its starting position.

Installing AFC technology offers many benefits:

Advantages for installers:   Advantages for residents / end users:
  • Easy to install and commission: 
    • Install, set, and forget
    • No need for complex calculations
    • Radiators/sections can be commissioned independently possible in sections
    • Replacement or testing of inserts is possible with systems still under pressure
    • Ideal for renovations
  • Reliable:
    • The set flow will never be exceeded
    • No hydraulic interference when opening or closing other valves/system sections
    • The Eclipse insert controls the max. flow independently of the differential pressure
  • Wide range of applications:
    • Two pipe systems
    • Can be used for differential pressures  up to 60 kPa
    • Complete AFC product range for all types of radiators & underfloor heating
