Thermostatic Mixing Valve
A Thermostatic Mixing Valve (TMV) is a valve that mixes hot and cold water to achieve an even temperature, maintaining a consistent stable outlet temperature and preventing scalding.
Customers, the elderly, people with disabilities, and young children are all protected by thermostatic mixing valves from the scalding effects of overheated water. They also reduce the chance of disease spreading in your water supply because hot and cold water are combined at the proper temperature just before it comes out of the tap.
If the supply of cold or hot water is lost, the water flow will automatically shut down, preventing scalding, burning, and harmful reactions from moving too quickly away from a too hot or too cold-water stream, causing serious injury.
