Mixing Valves for Any Project

Mixing valves, also known as tempering valves, can be used in a wide-variety of plumbing and heating applications. In domestic water applications they decrease water temperatures to prevent scalding, while still allowing high enough temperatures for dish washing and fighting legionella bacteria. Valves with ASSE 1016 or 1070 approvals should be used for water that will service end users at fixtures.

Three- and four-way mixing valves provide flexibility in hydronic heating applications. Use them to temper system fluid in installations that involve in-floor heating, or even to maintain high enough return water temperatures to prevent flue gas condensation in cast iron boilers.
