ThermOmegaTech’s 3-way thermal bypass valves (TBVs) provide reliable control of fluid temperatures in engines, compressors, lubrication oil cooling systems, hydrostatic drive circuits, radiators, hydraulic power units, process control and other industrial applications where fluids must be mixed or diverted depending on their temperatures.

These self-actuating thermal bypass valves automatically control fluid temperature to keep a system operating at the optimal temperature to reduce system wear and eliminate excessive heat damage.

In bypass mode, the TBV modulates fluid temperature by shifting return line flow through a cooler/heat exchanger or bypassing it directly to the reservoir. In mixing mode, the TBV adjusts flow through ports “B” and “C” to provide the desired temperature exiting the “A” port.
