The HAT/FP freeze protection valves protects cold water resupply lines from freezing. Utilizing our thermostatic technology, this valve automatically monitors ambient or water temperatures and will bleed off the cold water in the line before freezing temperatures can cause frozen or burst piping.

The HAT/FP-35 will initiate flow when the thermostatic actuator senses 35°F (1.6°C) and will remain open as long as the discharge water temperature is below 40°F (4.4°C).
In standard flow, the actuator will sense ambient temperature to initiate flow and then respond to water temperature; in reverse flow, the actuator will sense water temperature.
Relying on manually opening valves for freeze protection allows for human error or plugging of partially cracked valves. This annually accounts for large amounts of freeze damage resulting in huge monetary loss including repairing damaged equipment, piping, as well as system downtime.
The self-actuating HAT/FP valve eliminates the human errors associated with manual valves. This automatic valve is ideal for the protection of piping, safety showers, solar collectors & piping, condensate systems, fire lines, spray nozzles, or as backup protection on traced systems.
