A safety hazard for plant personnel will occur through solar radiation or overheating caused by steam or electric tracing resulting in extremely high temperatures at the point of use. The IC/SP valve prevents this safety hazard. When installed in safety showers, eyewash stations, and other locations exposed to the same source of overheating as the system, the IC/SP will be heated just as the pipe system. The valve will open to establish flow until the overtemperature water is eliminated and it will then modulate closed.
IC/SP valves are installed within the heated system. The IC/SP-105 will initiate flow when the thermostatic actuator senses water temperature of 98°F (36.7°C) and will remain open as long as the discharge water temperature is above 95°F (35°C).
