730 - MultiMix Series

High performance anti-scald thermostatic mixing valve. 20÷45°C, 45÷70°C and 35÷60°C. Connections: female.
Employments:

High performance thermostatic mixing valve for applications in under floor and radiator heating systems, hot domestic water and solar thermal.
The asymmetrical manufacture of the body of the valve, where the mixed outlet is in line with the connection of the hot water, usually allows an easier installation. The very great flow of the model with Kvs 4,0 is assured by the great size of the lock: a manufacture choice that allows to work with a very short stroke with a great benefit to the adjustment accuracy when the supply pressure and temperature change. In particular the model with Kvs 2,5 is specifically suitable for employment in hot domestic water at the user point, as it can assure a constant adjustment within ±1°C. Moreover Kvs 2,5 model has very compact size.

The below table allows to determine the most suitable model for the different installations allowed by MultiMix thermostatic mixing valves:

Technical features:

Anti-scald thermostatic mixing valve with high performances. Hot forged brass body. Yellow brass finish. Control of the temperatured supplied to the user, adjustable and available in three setting ranges.
  • Maximum static pressure 10 bar (PN 10); dynamic 5 bar.
  • Max ratio between the pressures: 2:1.
  • Maximum inlet temperature: for F3 and F4 models continuous 100°C, (short time: 120°C for 20 s).; for F5 model: 95°C;
  • Setting temperature range: 20÷45°C; 45÷70°C and 35÷60°C;
  • Adjustment stability: ±2°C (Kvs 4,0) and ±1°C (Kvs 2,5) within maximum performances.
  • It can be used with anti freeze fluids (glycol≤50%).
External connection: 3/4” Female.

The security anti-scald function automatically stops the hot water flow in case of failure of the cold water way.

Working and performances of MultiMix range 

The thermostatic mixer is an adjustment device that is very sensitive to the variations of feeding temperature of the gates “Hot” and “Cold” and to the loss of pressure balance on the gates.
These variations, in some products, change the selected mixing temperature and also the performances of the device in a considerable way. Sometime risking the safety of the user. For instance a consequence is the ineffectiveness of the anti scald function. MultiMix thermostatic mixer, thanks to a careful planning and to the adopted technical choices, overcomes these problems assuring, in the different installations, safety, stability and very good performances.
The results of the tests, described in the following page, point out what previously said.

Starting time

Flow request to the user when the valve is cold. The diagram shows how quickly the thermostatic mixer reacts, bringing the temperature of mixed water to the selected value.
The required time is very short: only 4 s.
Flow variation

The user requires a flow increase, from 5 l/min up to 20 l/min and then up to 40 l/min. The diagram shows how this variation has a minimum repercussion on the temperature supplied to the user.
The thermostatic mixer keeps constant the supplied temperature.
Loss of pressure balance:
hot water inlet


The diagram shows how the thermostatic mixer reacts to a sudden 30% pressure reduction on the hot water inlet.
In about 2 s the thermostatic mixer stabilizes with a difference of -1K in comparison with the selected temperature.
Loss of pressure balance:
cold water inlet


IThe diagram shows how the thermostatic mixer reacts to a sudden 30% pressure reduction on the cold water inlet.
In about 2 s the thermostatic mixer stabilizes without any variation in comparison with the selected temperature.
Reduction of the temperature of hot water inlet

The diagram shows the consequence of temperature drop of 20 K of the hot water inlet (from 70°C to 50°C).
In about 4 s the thermostatic mixer stabilizes with a difference of -0,5 K in comparison with the selected temperature.
Anti-scald function

The test simulates a sudden flow shortage on the cold water inlet, by turning off the “C” feeding of the thermostatic mixer.
The flow to the user stops in a time between 1 and 2 s, so avoiding the scald danger.
