Order Process Steps 1 & 2 for Coil Hook-Up

How It Works

Coil Detail from Job Plan — Step 1

The Flow Design sales representative will take-off the coil detail requirements for all types of terminal units on the job plan: fan coil, fin tube, unit heater, air handler, or VAV box. All functional requirements of the plan detail will be incorporated into the FDI Hook-Up. Occasionally there may be slight modifications made to the plan detail so that it will conform to ASHRAE and industry standards. The representative will then convert the standard plan detail into compact, labor saving modules.

Quotation — Step 2

FDI will provide a component drawing and price sheet of a modular Hook-Up for each type of terminal unit on the plan. The module will have all the functions of the plan detail. The price sheet will show a price for each size and type, as well as prices for several options:

  • Factory installed ATC valves – At the contractors option the ATC valves may be consigned to the FDI factory. The components will be attached to the valve and tested as an assembly.
  • Extensions for insulation – The standard valve handles, P/T plugs, air vents etc., will clear 1" thick insulation. Thicker insulation requires extensions which are priced under options.

The price sheet will also show a savings estimate using FDI modules. The number of field connections saved and cost savings will be listed on the price sheet. Savings will be based on the prevailing labor rate and discounted MCA time factors for each joint saved.
