High quality thermostatic brass valve and lockshield set
Available in standard angle connections for 1/2″ (15mm) connections to copper pipe
Supplied in brass or chrome plated finish.
Please note that as all radiator valves are custom made we are unable to accept returns unless the item is damaged in transit or faulty.
Thermostatic valves are bi-directional.
Operating temperature range approximately 5-30 degrees centigrade.<br>
Turn handwheel clockwise to decrease the temperature and vice versa. <br>
Normal room temperatures are achieved with between 1 or 2 black rings being exposed on the valve stem. Complete clockwise rotation of the handwheel will give full mechanical shutdown of the valve, overriding the thermostatic mechanism.
Heating systems with thermostatic radiator valves must be fitted with relevant differential by-pass valves.
Test Pressure: 7 bar/100 psi – manual and thermostatic. Differential pressure: 0.6
Unwrap valves, preventing damage by laying them on the tissue paper in which they were wrapped. Apply sealing tape or sealant to the thread of the radiator connector. Tighten the connector into the radiator using a 12mm. hexagon key.
Ensure that the rubber ‘o’ ring is in place on the connector before re-attaching the valve body.
After installation clean the valves with a soft cloth.
ALWAYS when tightening or unscrewing incoming pipework, use a spanner fitted to the inlet adaptor hexagon – Damage to the valve could result if these instructions are not followed.<br>
To prevent damage to the valve nuts, cut strips of cardboard from the packaging and wrap around the nuts before applying a spanner to them.
