Thermostatic valves

Thermostatic valves are used in hospitals, clinics, food industry, homes and factories.  They are also sometimes called safety valves.  A thermostatic valve mixes hot water from a geyser (usually at temperatures (± 70°C) that can cause severe scalding/burning or even killing a person) with the cold water supply to provide mixed water of

Temperature

  • Minimum temperature differential between hot and outlet temperature: 10°C
  • Optimum temperature control range: 35 – 45°C
  • Maximum hot water temperature: 85°C (for safety, a recommended hot water storage temperature maintained below 85°C and for ablution installations at between 60 to 65°C).

Flow Control

  • The Meynell 15/3 does not have an integral flow control.
  • Separate outlet flow control such as a tap, mechanical timed flow control device or solenoid is required.
  • The device chosen should be non- concussive in operation.

Connections

  • Inlet and outlet connectors are 15 mm compression
  • Hot (H) and Cold (C) inlets are clearly marked and must be connected this way.
  • The inlet connections have integral strainer and check valve units.

Pressures

  • Minimum operating pressure: 0.1 bar.
  • Maximum static pressure: 10 bar.
  • Maximum pressure loss ratio*: 10:1 (in favour of either supply).
  • Maximum hot water supply temperature: 85°C.
  • Maximum cold water supply temperature: 25°C.
  • Note! Both hot and cold pressure should be nominally equal.

Micro Thermostatic valve for single basins

The GroTherm Micro is a small thermostatic mixer designed for single hand wash basins only. It protects the user from scalding and reduces or mixes hot and cold water to a temperature between 15- 43°C. The GroTherm Micro is extremely easy to install with the two connecting braided pipes. The GroTherm Micro is ideal for hands free basin systems where a knee operated valve or floor operated valve are used. Since both these valves are not mixers (they do not mix hot and cold water), they require a thermostatic valve for warm water.

Pressure release valve

WC-ECON-15G
Pressure reducing valve 1.5 – 5.5 bar

WARNING: Thermostatic valves must be used with 15mm inline strainers to prevent dirt damaging the interior of mechanism. Warranty is void if no inline strainer is used. If you suspect the pressure exceeding 6 bar, please install a pressure regulating valve.
