thermostatic valve

  1. Temperature Sensing Element: The valve contains a temperature-sensitive element, often made of wax or a similar material, that expands or contracts in response to changes in water temperature.
  2. Adjustable Temperature Setting: The user sets the desired water temperature on the valve using a control knob or handle.
  3. Regulating the Water Flow: When the water flows through the valve, the temperature-sensitive element senses the temperature of the incoming hot and cold water.
  4. Mixing Action: Based on the temperature setting and the actual water temperatures, the valve adjusts the proportions of hot and cold water to achieve the desired output temperature.
  5. Maintaining Consistent Temperature: The valve continuously monitors and adjusts the flow of hot and cold water to maintain the selected temperature, even if there are fluctuations in the supply temperatures.

The primary purpose of a thermostatic valve is to prevent scalding or discomfort caused by sudden changes in water temperature. For instance, if someone in a nearby location starts using cold water (which could reduce the cold water pressure), the valve will automatically adjust the flow of hot water to maintain the set temperature.

Thermostatic valves are commonly used in showers, baths, and faucets, especially in environments where water temperature control is critical, such as healthcare facilities, schools, and homes with young children or elderly individuals.

In addition to safety benefits, thermostatic valves also promote water conservation by minimizing the need to adjust the water temperature manually, which can lead to wastage while waiting for the water to reach a comfortable temperature.
