Armstrong hot and cold water hose stations replace the basic Mixing Y with a Rada® 320 thermostatic mixing valve with 3/4'' (20 mm) inlets/outlet(s) as the primary water temperature controller. With the Rada 320 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 +/-2˚F (1˚C) in the event of inlet pressure and/or temperature fluctuation or change
- Protect the operator a thermal-shutdown feature if the cold water inlet supply fails
IMPORTANT NOTE: Thermostatic products used by our competitors for this application cannot provide a temperature range from full cold to the field-adjustable maximum limit stop. Nor can they access temperatures within 5°F (2°C) of either inlet supply temperature.
Various hose lengths, spray nozzles and hose reels are available as options for Armstrong hot and cold water hose stations.
