“Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018” for “Cocon QTZ”

The pressure independent control valve “Cocon QTZ” receives the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018”

The pressure independent control valve “Cocon QTZ” received an award as “winner” in the category “Heating and Cooling Technology” in the design competition “Red Dot Award : Product Design 2018”.

From a multitude of applications from 59 countries, the Oventrop valve combination “Cocon QTZ” convinced the international expert jury of the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018” with its design quality. The valve was honoured as “winner” in the category “Heating and Cooling Technology”. Criteria, such as degree of innovation, longevity and functionality were part of the decision.
The “Cocon QTZ” allows for automatic hydronic balancing of heating and cooling systems. Irrespective of differential pressure variations in the installation, the flow rate required for room temperature control is maintained at a constant level at the emitters. The “Cocon QTZ” is a combination consisting of a flow controller and a differential pressure regulating valve. The determined flow rate can be set easily. When equipped with an actuator, temperature controller or manual head, the valve can also be used for the control of another variable (e.g. room temperature). It is especially used in chilled ceilings, fan coils, convectors and central or surface heating systems.

The “Red Dot Award: Product Design“ is one of the most prestigious and one of the world’s best known prizes for “Good Design and Innovation” and honours the best products.
