Application Information
 
 
 
  Heat Actuated Trap (HAT/FP)  
 
Typically, freeze protection is effected by cracking open manual bleed valves. This method is at best risky. Human error or plugging of partially cracked valves annually accounts for large amounts of freeze damage to expensive equipment. HAT/FP valves eliminate this type of problem by automating freeze protection, reducing water consumption, and eliminating damage and down time. The unique ram-type plug and seat provide reliable, tight shutoff longer than any other design available. All HAT/FP valves are factory-tested and covered by a 36 month prorated warranty.

  ½" IC/FP Solar Freeze Protection  
 
Installed at the outlet of the collector, this valve will automatically regulate the outlet flow within the setpoint range of the valve. If the outlet water is not fully heated to your desired level, the valve will restrict the water flow to allow more solar heating; as the outlet water heats up to the specified temperature, the valve modulates open to allow more flow. In multi-collector systems, this thermal balancing valve also serves to balance the flow through various collectors which may be producing different outlet water temperatures due to variations in solar exposure, wind, or other factors. This valve will automatically adjust the outlet flow to maintain the desired outlet water temperature.

  ¾" IC/FP (3/4 IC/FP-035 Cartridge)  
 
IC/FP (Freeze Protection) valves are ideal for the protection of piping, safety showers, condensate systems, fire lines, spray nozzles, or as backup protection on traced systems, where an unrestricted flow is required under normal operating conditions. Its sensitivity to water temperature makes this valve ideal for applications where water conservation or wastewater disposal are a prime concern.
