  1" Steam-Water Vortex Mixing Valve  
 
Because of the unique vortex flow characteristics inside the STVM valve, it is capable of mixing steam and water without the usual noise and vibration associated with other types of mixers. As a safety feature, the thermal actuator in the valve outlet is designed to turn off the steam flow into the valve if the cold water flow into the valve is interrupted. The entire internal operating mechanism (AKA cartridge) of the STVM valve can be quickly and easily removed as a single assembly by simply unscrewing the valve cap. This allows easy cleaning and service without removing the valve from the line. The unique flow characteristics of the vortices inside the valve create a scouring action that together with special coatings on the cartridge element minimize the effects of mineral deposits on valve operation, assuring increased service life even under adverse conditions.

  Drain Tempering Valve (3/4 DTV-R)  
 
The DTV-R valve can be used in applications where a discharge flow to a drain or sewer must be tempered with cold water to reduce temperature. In some areas, plumbing codes dictate a maximum allowable sewer discharge temperature. The DTV-R provides a convenient, economical, and easy to use method of tempering hot effluent flows. Since the DTV-R is open only when the effluent exceeds the specified setpoint temperature, it also conserves water by automatically turning off cold water when not needed.
 
     
 
Design Features

* Boiler blowdown drain lines
* Condensate return headers
* Heat Exchanger backup cooling
* Dehumidifier
* Any excessively hot effluent flow to sewer/drain
* Condensate discharge from steam traps directly to sewer

 
 
     
 
  Fluid Mixing Valve (HAT/MIX)  
 
HAT/MIX valves can be used in any application in which a constant low flow rate (under 1 GPM) of water at a specific temperature is desired. These valves, like any mixing valve, must be installed with check valves on both hot and cold inlets. Pressure reducing valves are recommended on HAT/MIX installations in which system pressures are likely to vary. Pressure reducing valves should be adjusted to approximately 10-20% less than average system pressure for accurate and constant outflow temperatures. In some installations, throttling valves may be used in place of pressure reducing valves. These throttling valves should be set and locked for safety.

  Sparco-Mix Valves NPT (Sparco-Mix Valves NPT)  
 
SPARCO-MIX valves are designed around our exclusive Thermoloid sensor/controller, the most advanced and reliable thermal actuator of its type available today. SPARCO-MIX valves simultaneously control both hot and cold ports, to automatically and accurately proportion the flow in response to fluid temperature. On loss of cold or hot fluid supply the flow rate is reduced to a trickle. For fast response, these valves are compact and low mass. For mixing applications, the SPARCO-MIX valve will proportion the flow from two inlet ports to produce the desired outlet port temperature.For diverting applications, the SPARCO-MIX valve will divert the inlet flow to either of two outlet ports depending on the fluid temperature. Available in ½", ¾" and 1" sizes.
