Bradley’s New Digital Mixing Valve Delivers Precise Temperature Control

Share With:

When it comes to delivering safe, heated water in commercial applications, such as schools, hospitals, hotels and multi-family living facilities, the importance of reliable and precise temperature control is a must. But without a precise mixing valve solution, hot water availability can be hindered by big variances and inconsistencies, creating frustration and safety issues for building occupants. Fortunately, Bradley’s new Navigator® digital mixing valve (DMV) ensures exact water temperature, hot water system safety, as well as thermal disinfection.

Engineered with advanced temperature control technology, this new DMV provides precise and reliable temperature control, and programmable features. Designed to deliver and maintain water temperatures within +/- 3º F, even during low and zero demand periods, this digital valve maximizes safety and efficiency for domestic hot water systems.

The valve’s intuitive controller allows proactive temperature control by setting the temperature for normal operation and scheduling periodic thermal disinfection cycles. Data logging and BMS integration allow for convenient remote monitoring to ensure the proper water temperature is being distributed, eliminating the risk of elevated temperatures and scalding.

Customizable thermal disinfection system

To keep water clean and safe, the automatic daily ball rotation feature removes scale to keep the valve running smoothly while reducing cleaning and maintenance time. The valve’s exclusive, programmable weekly thermal disinfection system — with four programmable settings — raises temperatures to kill Legionella and other harmful bacteria. After disinfection, the system will automatically flush hot water and reset for daily use.

The tight temperature control, remote monitoring capabilities, and easy-to-program thermal disinfection system make the valve ideal for larger domestic hot water systems such as schools, hospitals, hotels and apartment buildings.

The S59-5000 series valve is available in five models ranging from 3/4” to 2” in size. Two valves can also be combined into a manifold system to deliver even higher flow rates up to 409 GPM at 20 psi drop.

Each model comes complete with valve, actuator, mixed and return sensors, mixed temperature gauge and controller for a comprehensive ready-to-install package. All materials are 100% factory assembled and tested.
