Airport Letisko Milana Rastislava Štefánika

The most important and largest airport of Slovakia is located in Bratislava. It was constructed between 1947 and 1951and was expanded again and again over the years. The construction of a new terminal started in 2008. The investment of a total of 96 million Euro made the building the largest infrastructure investment of Slovakia. The terminal opened in 2012.

Every year, 5 million passengers starting their trip to destinations all over the world are handled in the new terminal. Pleasant temperatures inside the terminal are ensured by different Oventrop products.

Everything regulated with "Hydrocontrol" and "Hydromat"

Apart from latest building technology, a new heating system was installed. Double regulating and commissioning valves of the series “Hydrocontrol VFC” sized DN 20 up to DN 200 were installed for perfect functioning and hydronic balancing. The valves allow for a hydronic balance between the individual risers and for their supply with the calculated volume flow. The values for each individual riser are regulated centrally and are set precisely. This way, an efficient operation of the building is guaranteed.

Differential pressure regulators of the “Hydromat DTR” series were also installed. The proportional regulators working without auxiliary energy maintain a constant differential pressure within a necessary proportional band. Regulators sized DN 32 up to DN 100 were installed. A special advantage is that the nominal value of the Oventrop differential pressure regulator is infinitely adjustable and that the calculated values can be transferred to the system without large deviations.

Optimum temperatures inside the terminal

Pressure independent control valves “Cocon QTZ” allow for the regulation of the terminal units. All valves were equipped with electronic actuators guaranteeing that the correct room temperature is always maintained. Visitors feel well and will be happy to start their next trip from the airport Letisko Milana Rastislava Štefánika again.
