Safety is ThermOmegaTech®’s highest priority which is why we designed anti-scald devices to prevent water temperatures in emergency equipment from reaching unsafe levels which can potentially cause severe and long-term damage to facility workers.
Outdoor water supply lines exposed to extremely high temperatures from the sun can overheat, resulting in emergency safety showers and eye/facewash stations being supplied with dangerously hot water. Even facilities with exclusively internal water supply lines to these fixtures are at risk of having water overheated by malfunctioning steam or electric heat tracing systems.
To avoid scalding or a worsened chemical reaction due to employees being exposed to excessively hot water, ThermOmegaTech® has developed self-actuating scald valves that automatically purge over-temperature water from these systems.
These thermostatic scald protection valves are designed to sense the water and/or air temperature and will automatically modulate open to bleed off the hot water when the temperature reaches the valve’s set-point. This causes cooler water from the resupply line to backfill and prevent the line from overheating. Once the water temperature in the line is back below the scald danger range, the valve will modulate closed again to conserve water.
Scald protection valves not only ensure safe operation of emergency equipment, but they also help to ensure compliance with the tepid water standard of ANSI Z358.1. ThermOmegaTech®’s solution to anti scald protection is automatic and responsive, while requiring no outside power source to operate. The IC/SP and HAT/SP valves are completely mechanical and eliminate the cause of overheating water due to steam or electric heat tracing failures.
IC/SP valves are purely water temperature sensitive. The sensing element, the thermal actuator, is always wetted and is preferable for heat traced lines where scald protection flow is not required unless heat tracing fails. IC/SP valves are installed within the heated system.
HAT/SP valves in the standard flow direction are initially air temperature sensitive then as the valve opens it responds to flowing water temperature. HAT/SP valves in the reverse flow direction are water temperature sensitive. This valve would be ideally applied in a circulating tempered water loop.
ThermOmegaTech®’s IC/SP and HAT/SP valves are the most innovative self-actuating scald protectors in the industry. Don’t let your personnel suffer from high-temperature burn, let ThermOmegaTech® provide safe scald guard to your safety showers and eye/facewash stations.
