Our M/D temperature control valves are designed for 3-way mixing or diverting applications. Utilizing our exclusive Thermoloid® blend paraffin wax actuator, the M/D valves automatically and accurately proportions flow in response to fluid temperature.
In mixing applications, the M/D valves will modulate between the hot and cold inlet feeds (ports “B” and “C”) to mix your fluid to the desired specified temperature exiting the “A” port.
In diverting applications, the valves act as thermal bypass valves (TBVs) to modulate inlet fluid temperature and divert return flow through a cooler/ heat exchanger or bypass it to a reservoir/ bypass loop when fluid temperatures are satisfied. This action assures rapid system warm-up, accurate control of fluid temperature, and reduced back pressure in the return.
