Caleffi 5212 Sinkmixer Scald Protection Thermostatic Mixing Valve
The thermostatic mixing valve mixes hot and cold water in such a way as to maintain constant set temperature of the mixed water at the outlet. A thermostatic element is fully immersed into the mixed water. This element then contracts or expands causing movement of the piston, closing either the hot or cold inlets, regulating the flow rates entering the valve. If there are variations of temperature or pressure at the inlets, the internal element automatically reacts to restore the original temperature setting. In the event of a failure of either the hot or cold supply, the piston will shut off the opposite inlet port, stopping water discharging from the mixed water outlet.
In the event of a failure of the hot supply port, the piston closes the cold
supply port. Similarly, if the cold water supply fails, the piston closes
the hot supply port. The Caleffi SinkMixer scald protection thermostatic
mixing valve requires a minimum temperature differential from hot inlet
to mixed water outlet of 18°F (10°C) to ensure the correct operation of
the thermal shutoff feature
