JRGUMAT Thermostatic Mixer Valve
From +GF+ Georg Fischer
Constant water temperature and protection against burns
With the JRGUMAT thermostatic mixing valve from GF Piping Systems, mixed water at a constant temperature can be guaranteed in an energy-efficient way, wherever it is wanted or required. This valve is extremely durable and has proven its effectiveness for decades.
How does the JRGUMAT valve work?
The JRGUMAT mixing valve is a precision three-way valve with proportional regulation and made of bronze. The temperature of the mixed water is transmitted to the thermostat. This compares the temperature with the set point. If the mixed water temperature does not match the set point, it changes the volume on the thermostat. This causes the valve slide to move through the pin so that more cold or hot water can flow as needed, until the temperature of the mixed water matches the set point.
The housing of the JRGUMAT thermostatic valve is made of gun bronze with a low lead content. This alloy complies with current EU lead limits and can be installed without problems until 2036 and used thereafter.
One product - an infinite number of potential applications
Residential and sensitive buildings
Excessively hot water can scald the skin. Therefore, maximum hot water temperatures at intake points such as taps or showers should be limited. Because skin damage occurs within minutes at a water temperature of only 45-51°C, within seconds at 51°C and above, and in a fraction of a second at over 70°C. In buildings with sensitive uses such as hospitals, nursing homes, schools and kindergartens, but also in hotels or apartments, the hot water can be adjusted to a safe maximum temperature with the JRGUMAT thermostatic mixing valve.
Industrial and commercial
Thanks to their great regulation precision, JRGUMAT thermostatic mixing valves can be used for special applications, as regulating elements to maintain the temperature or for processes that require a constant water temperature. Where hands are not free to individually adjust the water temperature using a mixer tap, mixed water adjusted to the desired temperature is very useful.
Alternative energy systems
When water is heated by solar energy, pellet stoves or wood heaters, for example, high temperatures can occur in the hot water tank. The JRGUMAT thermostatic mixing valve regulates the hot water to the desired temperature.
Advantages of the JRGUMAT thermostatic mixing valve
- Great regulation precision
- It works without external energy
- Reliable circulation operation
- Can be used with various piping systems
- More than 50 years of experience in the market with thermostatic mixing valves in the drinking water sector
