FCU-HE Floor Control Unit

Incorporating the advanced technology of the M3V Control Group the FCU allows for a centralised control of Under Floor Heating (UFH) and Wall Hung Radiators (WHR) when installing a multi use system. The FCU can also distribute to UFH or WHR systems as a stand alone unit.

Integral to the unit is the M3V composite control group which provides temperature and flow management to the Under Floor Heating system while allowing a T2 Topway Type 2 manifold to be connected to the inlet to supply higher temperature water to Wall Hung Radiators.

This unit is ideal for use where systems have Under Floor Heating in the majority of the property but still require towel rails or Wall Hung Radiators in certain areas. This product allows the point to point plumbing principle to be used for both systems meaning less joints and therefore less chance of leaks.

The M3V control group incorporated within the FCU Floor Control Unit includes a circulating pump, mixing valve assembly that can be thermostatically or electronically controlled, drain/fill valves, automatic air vents and differential pressure bypass valves.

When controlling the mixing valve electronically the RCE weather compensating system can be used to manage the mix temperature depending on external weather conditions.

FAQS

Why do I get a bubble in the top of the flow meter?
There can be a small residue of air in the top of the flow meter. The higher the filling flow rate, the less air there generally is. As long as it is above the reading scale, it does not affect the reading. Over time, the air dissolves back into the water and will naturally disappear, as it is absorbed into the water.

Can you connect a copper pipe to any of Emmeti Manifolds?
Yes but we only cater for 10mm and 15mm pipe

Can I have more than three circuits on the high temperature side of the Floor Control Unit?
Yes, please add a single bar manifolds, for further information please contact Emmeti UK.  

How do I replace the swivel joints on older model FMU Floor Mixing Units?
Purchase code 01306460 1"M x 1" Female Union coupling and gasket.

How do I replace the flow meters on FMU Floor Mixing Units?
Purchase code 01306302 0 - 4 l/min, 1/2" MBSP metal threaded.

Why is the amount of water in the flow meter different on different occasions?
The initial amount of air can vary depending on your fill flow rate. Then it will be affected by your pump pressure, the higher the pressure, the less air that will be visible (as air is compressed under pressure). Over time, the air dissolves back into the water and will naturally disappear, as it is absorbed into the water.

Does flow affect the amount of water in the flow meter?
The initial amount of air can vary depending on your fill flow rate. Then it will be affected by your pump pressure, the higher the pressure, the less air that will be visible (as air is compressed under pressure). Typically, you can evidence this, between when the pump is running, and when the pump is off.  Over time, the air dissolves back into the water and will naturally disappear, as it is absorbed into the water.
