Flow Control Valve

I'm changing the upstairs zone on my hydronic heating system to radiant floor heat. It used to be baseboard. The B&G F00200 flow control valve needs to be replaced, I was wondering if there is a specific valve I should use with the system. It's a five zone manifold, each with a zone valve.

    Is there going to be a mixing valve involved with the radiant, and a separate zone pump?
    If so the check in the circ should be adequate.

    Or a basic hydronic spring check, serviceable like this.

    I hope there will be a mixing valve and separate zone pump! Otherwise you are going to overheat that floor...

    Yes, separate zone pump with check valve and a mixing valve. I'll just eliminate the old flow valve. Thanks for the info, very helpful.
