Caroma announces the release of its first thermostatic mixing valve, a new high performance product setting the benchmark for functionality, reliability and safety.

Part of Caroma’s extensive product portfolio, the new TMV20 is designed to comply with AS4032.1, and prevents scalding in healthcare and commercial applications by regulating the flow of hot and cold water.

Caroma’s TMV20 thermostatic mixing valves are recommended for hospitals, aged care facilities and childcare centres where safety and water temperature control are important requirements.

Dr Steve Cummings, Research and Development Manager at Caroma explains that the new thermostatic mixing valve offers the ideal solution for healthcare and commercial applications. Rigorous testing and in-depth research and development collaboration preceded the development of the first Caroma TMV.

He adds that the TMV20 is designed to suit Australian conditions and features a unique removable cartridge system for quick and simple onsite servicing, minimising disruption to the facility and saving time.

Key features of Caroma’s TMV20 thermostatic mixing valves include ability to service multiple outlets simultaneously; safe supply of 42L/min of mixed water to ±2°C within a range of inlet pressures and temperatures; assured protection against scalding by providing a rapid shutdown of mixed water flow from the outlet; unique thermostatic cartridge design replaceable as a complete, integrated unit for ease of maintenance; and anti-scaling coating applied to all brass components within the cartridge for durability in hard water applications.

The core range of Caroma’s TMV20 thermostatic mixing valves provides greater installation options with four boxed configurations comprising of Standard Bottom Inlet, Standard Top Inlet, Standard Bottom Inlet with Bypass and Standard Top Inlet with Bypass. Caroma TMV20 is supported by a comprehensive spare parts offer, ensuring quick and easy maintenance to provide a total solutions package.

Caroma’s TMV20 can be supplied with a complete stainless steel housing unit available with either a removable lockable hinged door or a removable lockable cover panel, suitable for a concealed or exposed wall mounting.
