Therm-Omega-Tech, the global leader in the design and manufacture of self-actuating temperature control valves, announced today that is has developed a new low-PSI Therm-O-Mix Station. The Therm-O-Mix Station is an all-weather, instant tempered water supply for safety showers and eyewash stations that use steam and cold water. The new low-PSI model works with as little as 15 PSI steam pressure, whereas the previous model required at least 45 PSI.
“We heard from our clients that they wanted the reliability of instant tepid water in their plants, but the steam they used was only at 25 PSI,” said Nick Tallos, V.P. of Engineering. “We firmly believe that every employee should have access to safety precautions and that every manager should rest assured that they are code compliant in protecting their teams. That’s why we developed this new Therm-O-Mix Station, and it’s why we will continue to innovate products to help our clients.”
The Therm-O-Mix is easily installed on eyewash and shower stations and uses existing plant steam and water supply only. When the shower or eyewash station is activated, the pressure drop on a diaphragm opens a steam control valve. Water and steam flow are established instantly heating the water and condensing the steam. A water mixing valve then blends the heated water with cold water to produce a consistent output of 85°F (29°C) water. Additional valves keep the system preheated, freeze protected and scald protected. The Therm-O-Mix Station conforms to OSHA and ANSI recommendations.
Therm-Omega-Tech has over two decades of experience in the design and manufacturing of valves for freeze and scald protection, mixing & diverting, steam traps, ambient temperature control, and surface sensing applications. Custom specifications are always welcomed. Its valves protect billions of dollars of rail equipment each year, and can be found in commercial dish washer lines; boiler systems for blow downs; commercial laundries, safety showers and eyewash stations, thermal solar panels, and more. Therm-Omega-Tech’s valves are very “green” in that no outside power source is needed to produce motion.
Founded in 1983, Therm-Omega-Tech is the global leader in the design and manufacturing of the most advanced, reliable, and compact self-actuated valves for temperature control. The company holds over 25 patents for the design and manufacturing of valves for freeze control, scald protection, and tepid water mixing in the rail, aerospace, chemical, solar, healthcare, hospitality, and manufacturing industries to name a few. All Therm-Omega-Tech products are made in the United States of America. More details are available at http://www.ThermOmegaTech.com.
