TMV3 Thermostatic Mixing Valve
TMV3 mixing valves are designed to limit the maximum temperature of hot water and prevent the danger of users scalding their hands. TMV3 mixing valves are recommended for use on all hot water supplies in schools as part of good risk management.
The danger of scalding arises because to prevent the growth of the legionella bacteria, hot water must be stored at 60ºC or above. At this temperature, healthy adult skin can be severely scalded and receive third degree burns in only five seconds. It is vital that the safe delivery of hot water to an outlet is controlled.
The most effective way of delivering safe hot water temperatures is by using a thermostatic mixing valve which will take the stored hot water and mix it in the correct proportions with the cold-water supply to deliver a safe temperature at point of use. Thermostatic mixing valves have been designed to maintain a pre-set temperature when supply water pressures or temperatures fluctuate.
