Because of the unique mixing characteristics inside the STVM® Valve, it is capable of mixing steam and water without the usual noise and vibration associated with other types of mixers. As a safety feature, the thermal actuator in the valve outlet is designed to turn off the steam flow into the valve if the cold water flow into the valve is interrupted. The entire internal operating mechanism (cartridge) of the STVM® Valve can be quickly and easily removed as a single assembly by simply unscrewing the valve cap. This allows easy cleaning and service without removing the valve from the line. The unique flow characteristics of the vortices inside the valve create a scouring action that minimize the effects of mineral deposits on valve operation, assuring increased service life even under adverse conditions.
ThermOmegaTech®’s STVM® Valve uses unique mixing technology for silent operation. During operation, cold water enters the mixing valve and moves from the inside out, while incoming steam moves from the outside in. Mixing occurs as the two flows collide, thoroughly mixing and heating the water to the desired temperature with minimal noise and vibration.
What’s especially remarkable about this mixing technology is what you don’t hear – the banging, popping, and crackling noises that come from ordinary mixing valves. That means there’s none of the noise or vibration that can add stress to the work environment, and none of the cavitation that can cause premature wear.
