Taco Zone Sentry flared

Taco’s newest Zone Sentry Zone Valve – with an inverted flare – is ideally suited to retrofit and new construction work.

The zone valves improve the overall performance of any hydronic system that uses a zone valve. Uniquely, Taco’s zone valve line uses microcircuit-based logic to control a gear-driven electronic actuator that drives a ball valve-based body design.

Taco’s Zone Sentry valve is available with either a normally open or normally closed actuator. The valve can be installed in any direction, in any orientation. Snap-in quick connects on the back of the valve make for a simple, secure wiring hook-up. A green LED shows full functionality of valve operation.

Ideal for use with a wide variety of heating and cooling applications, Zone Sentry valves were designed primarily for baseboard, fan coil, radiator, convector, heat pump and radiant applications. The valves are now available in ½”, ¾”, 1”sweat or NPT and inverted flare (less fittings) and inverted flare (with ¾” sweat fittings) and draw only 1.44 watts.

The Zone Sentry is easy to install and operate, and the one-handed liftoff actuator means that tight space is no longer a concern.

The addition of this connection to the Zone Sentry line allows contractors to replace an existing inverted flare valve with the Zone Sentry without having to cut and sweat pipe, greatly reducing retrofit time. For new installations, it allows the installer to use the type of product he prefers, with improved performance. Learn more here.
