Armstrong Hot and Cold Water Hose Stations replace the basic Mixing Y with a Thermostatic Mixing Valve (TMV) as the primary water temperature controller.
With the Armstrong Model 320 TMV you can:
- Change outlet water temperature from full cold to the field-adjustable maximum limit stop in a single handle turn
- Set and lock to a single temperature and maintain outlet temperatures +/-2oF (1oC) in the event of inlet pressure and/or temperature fluctuation or change.
- Protect the operator with a thermal-shutdown feature if the cold water inlet supply fails
IMPORTANT NOTE: Thermostatic products used by other manufacturers for this application cannot provide a temperature range from full cold to the field-adjustable maximum limit stop. Nor can they access temperatures within 5oF (2oC) of either inlet supply temperature.
