The ThermoProtec boiler protection high-flow thermostatic mixing valve is used in hydronic heating systems with non-condensing boilers, including solid fuel, biomass, gas, LP or oil-fired. It can be installed with steel, cast iron and copper tube style boilers, automatically controlling the return water temperature, preventing condensation of the water vapor contained in the flue gas.
The 280 series ThermoProtec valve mixes bypass flow from the boiler with return flow from the system, sending a fixed temperature flow to the boiler which protects against corrosion from condensation occurring when a minimum flue gas temperature is not otherwise maintained.
Changeable thermostatic sensor cartridges modifies the valve temperature setting. The thermostatic sensor cartridge can easily be removed for maintenance or to change the valve set temperature, with out removing the valve body from the piping.
