Thermostatic Mixing Valves

Hot water temperature control is an important safety issue for homes, hotels, hospitals and other health care facilities. If exposed to heated water above 60 degrees Celsius, it can take as little as 1 second for a child to receive third degree burns and require hospitalisation.

Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMV’s) are essential where young children, elderly or disabled people use the showers, baths, basins and sinks.

TMV’s are the best way to protect against scald injuries and provide superior temperature stability for warm water delivery.”

Thermostatic mixing valveThe function of a thermostatic mixing valve is to mix the hot and cold water entering the valve to the temperature that has been pre-selected by the user. This is done automatically by a thermally sensitive mechanism within the valve that proportions the amount of hot and cold water entering so as to achieve the required blend.
