A thermostatic mixing valve is a safe and reliable way to achieve perfectly tempered water supply.
Hot and cold water is mixed as it passes through the valve and is discharged at the required temperature i.e., 43 degrees for adults or 38 degrees for children. Unlike tempering valves, thermostatic mixing valves are much more accurate (+/- 1 deg.) and fail safe in case of any disruptions in either the cold or hot water supply.
This safety feature prevents scalding and/or thermal shock accidents and will prevent users from getting seriously injured, even saving lives. Thermostatic mixing valves are required for all health, aged and child care institutions, due to the Occupational, Health and Safety requirements.
Because of the superior level of safety and accuracy thermostatic mixing valves are finding their way into residential apartments on a much more regular basis than before.
