Valve Protects Centrifugal Pumps.

A temperature-actuated valve from Therm-Omega-Tech Inc. that operates without an external power source protects centrifugal pumps from the damaging effects of high temperature water. The ECONO/HAT/RA valve is suited for centrifugal pumps that pump water in high rise buildings, where water temperature can cause rotating parts to expand and ultimately seize. The valve uses a thermal actuator that opens the valve when water temperature rises above the desired limit. The actuator continues to test water until the temperature returns to a safe range, when the valve modulates back to the closed position, reducing waste. The valve resists clogs and corrosion, and features an all brass body and fittings, with a stainless steel spring and plug.
