The thermostatic mixing valve is used in systems producing domestic
hot water or in radiant panel heating systems. Its function is to maintain
the temperature of the mixed water supplied to the user at a constant
set value when there are variations in the supply pressure and
temperature of the incoming hot and cold water or in the flow rate.
Valve models with integral inlet port check valves are ASSE 1070
approved for point of use installations. Models without check valves are
ASSE 1017 approved for point of distribution and are designed
specifically for systems requiring high flow rates and precise, stable
