DIMENSIONING OF MIXING VALVES IN GROUP MIXING
The precision, sensitivity, flow rate and durability of the mixing valve can be ensured only insofar as it is looked after, and before
all else, correctly chosen.
To define the size of the most suitable mixing valve for a determined use, the following elements must be known: the total instant
flow rate (see paragraph below) and dynamic pressure available at the outflow for the hot water, and for the cold water, the
mixing valve's supply pipes. It can be measured or calculated, by using the DARIES abacus.
This abacus can also be used to make sure the water speed is not excessive.
Never admit a static pressure of more than 10 bars.
CASE OF ULTRAMIX THERMOSTATIC MIXING VALVES
Calculation method
1 ­ Define the Cumulated Flow rate of mixed water by multiplying the quantity of appliances to be supplied by the usual unit flow
rates (table below). (Consult us for any other application as necessary).

1 - Usual bathroom appliance unit flow rates (needs of mixed water)
2 - Calculating the total instant flow rate to be supplied by the mixing valve. Depending in the nature of the work, choose the
decrease ratio of the flow rates corresponding with the quantity of appliances to be supplied (table below).
Multiply this ratio by the cumulated flow rate to obtain the instant flow rate.
