In this video Jamie walks us through the most common way to install an ESBE diverter valve.

Installing an ESBE valve doesn’t have to be a daunting task. In this guide, we’ll walk you through a super quick installation process, breaking down each step to ensure a smooth setup experience.

ESBE valves, known for their reliability and efficiency, play a crucial role in HVAC systems. The ESBE valve, in particular, offers a three-port mid-position design with unique features that streamline installation.

Step-by-Step Installation Guide

Understanding Valve Ports

  • The SB valve features three distinct ports: triangle, circle, and square.
  • The triangle port represents the flow inlet, resembling the Daikin symbol.
  • The circle port directs flow out to the hot water cylinder.
  • The square port signifies space heating, directing flow to radiators or underfloor heating systems.

Installing the Castellated Nut

  • The castellated nut ensures a secure connection.
  • Align the longer side of the line on the nut with the valve and rotate it into place.

Positioning the Valve

  • Set the valve to mid-position, aligning the groove with the midpoint between heating and hot water.

Attaching the Valve Head

  • Fit the valve head onto the body, ensuring a snug fit.
  • Orient the head to allow easy cable access and water drainage.
  • Secure the head using the provided screw.

Configuring the Dial

  • Insert the dial, ensuring it clicks into place.
  • Verify that the red ring is not visible, indicating proper alignment with the valve body.

Wiring and Final Checks

  • Connect the cabling according to schematic drawings.
  • Double-check all connections and configurations for accuracy.

With these simple steps, you can quickly and effectively install an ESBE valve, ensuring optimal performance and reliability in your HVAC system. Mastering valve installation is key to maximizing system efficiency and longevity.

In summary, mastering the installation of ESBE valves is essential for efficient HVAC system operation. By following this basic guide, you can streamline the installation process and harness the full potential of ESBE valves in your projects.
