The IC/SP Scald Protection Valve is designed to drain excessively hot water from safety showers and face or eyewash systems, protecting personnel from hot water scalding and severe burns.
IC/SP valves are installed within the heated system and are pure water temperature sensing. The IC/SP will initiate flow when the thermostatic actuator senses water temperature above the valves set-point (typically 98°F (36.7°C)) and will remain open as long as the discharge water temperature is within 10˚F of the open set-point (typically above 95°F (35°C)).
The thermal actuator is always wetted, making this valve preferable for heat traced lines where scald protection flow is not required unless heat tracing fails.
