The unit is supplied fully assembled, pressure-tested.
STEAMIX® Steam and Water Hose Stations and Mixing Units will not pass live steam.
Steamix mixing valve, featured on all Steamix steam and water hose stations by Armstrong, will not pass live steam in the event of either a significant pressure reduction or complete failure of the cold-water supply.
Steamix is designed to improve efficiency and reduce risk when mixing steam and water for washdown. When your process demands high washdown temperatures, adjusting the mix of steam and water becomes much more difficult and dangerous. With the older style dual-globe valve mixing “Y,” it is too easy to introduce too much steam—with risky consequences for your personnel. Here’s why it’s no problem with Steamix.
- In the event of either a complete failure of the inlet cold-water supply or a reduction in cold-water pressure to below 20 (+/-5) psi (1.4 bar), STEAMIX will respond with a complete shutdown of outlet flow.
- If there is a structural failure of the primary operating component (diaphragm), STEAMIX will “fail safe” to cold water.
- To prevent over-temperature selection by the user and the potential for overheated water and flash steam presentation common with other types of hose stations, STEAMIX is supplied with a single-temperature locking set.
