Temperature Control Devices

Temperature Control Devices Services in Sydney

Heated water delivered at 60°C takes one second to cause third-degree burns. By reducing the temperature of water delivery from hot taps to 45°C through the use of a temperature control device, it takes six hours to cause those burns. The risk of scalding is far greater for people who are more vulnerable. These people at a higher risk include those with a disability, the elderly and children, as they may have a reduced reaction time and thinner skin.

When installing a temperature control device you are ultimately protecting your family and friends from getting burnt. A common temperature control device installed in Australia is called a Warm Water valve or Thermostatic Mixing Valve. How these valves work is simply a mix of cold water (7°C) mixing into hot water (60°C), to create warm water (45°C). As long as the water mixture is at the right ratio, the temperature can be modified as necessary to your use.

Fixtures that warm water is normally required are:

  • Basins
  • Showers
  • Bidets
  • Baths
  • Taps
  • Swimming Pools
  • Sinks
  • Laundries
  • Washing Machines

Temperature control devices can be activated and functioned in many different ways including:

  • Thermostatic element or sensors
  • A mixing valve that is temperature-activated
  • A mixing valve that is manually activated
