plays its role in the complete "multi-level" solution deploying the
multi-point mixing valve, by
providing safe point of uses at the first temperature level of the distribution loop (temperature above 55°C) :
- prevention of legionella
- temperature control of the hot sanitary water system
(up to the point of use)
- removing the risks of scalding by excessively hot water.
is a very compact, modern-design (polished,
chromium-plated body) thermostatic mixing valve that is easily
installed on a wall-mounted isolating valve or on the wall-mounted
The protected temperature setting is preset by the installer and the mechanism
is remarkably fast-acting.
complies with European standard EN 1111
and EN 1287.
MINIMIXing's features for preventing the spread of legionella include :
Easy removal of the thermostatic cartridge for descaling and disinfecting without
dismantling the mixing valve. This is an annual operation (subjet to survey of water conditions).
- 2 check valves and stainless steel filters to prevent any contact between hot and cold water (allowing the bacterium to move
from one system to the other : from the hot water to the cold for example),
- Possibility of carrying out a thermal shock :
By opening the cover of the
and turning the cartridge to the maximum hot position (killing the bacterium from 60°C).
This operation is carried out annually or after each period of inactivity (easily achieved on the
by means of its
thermostatic cartridge allowing temperatures up to 70°C).
Note : During thermal shocks, raising the temperature can break the seal on the check valves and counteract the
required effect since the bacteria in the hot water will be in the cold water (or vice versa) and will contaminate both parts
of the system.
On MINIMIXing and ULTRAMIX, the approved check valves withstand thermal shocks because they are able to resist
temperatures up to 90°C.
- Possibility of carrying out a chemical shock :
Using the rinsing kit supplied, it is very easy to carry
out a flush with a disinfecting solution.
