Installation of TMV and RPZ Valves.
If you need to have a TMV or RPZ Valve installed, or are unsure of the regulations, Artius PP can advise and, in most cases, help complete the required paperwork prior to installing and commissioning your valve.
Reduced Pressure Zone valves (RPZ valves)
The installation and use of RPZ valves must be notified in advance to the water supplier who could impose additional terms and conditions when granting consent. Potential users of RPZ valves must be made aware of all the terms of consent regarding installation and maintenance. RPZ valves create a pressure drop across the device and may not be suitable for use on low pressure supplies. The water pressure at the intended location of the valve must be known before it is installed and must be suitable.
Our many years experience means we will select the most appropriate valve arrangement for your particular application.
Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMV)
Health and social care providers should carry out a full risk assessment of their hot and cold water systems and ensure adequate measures are in place to control the risks.
Any water fitting, which when installed, will carry or receive water from the public mains water supply in the UK, must comply with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations or Scottish Byelaws. Thermostatic Mixing Valves are no exception.
Even after installation TMVs require regular routine maintenance carried out by a qualified installer. These routine checks can include inspections, cleaning, descale and disinfect any strainers or filters. Helping to safeguard against scolding risks and contamination of legionella.
Fully accredited and with many years experience Artius PP will help you design, install, test and maintain your Thermostatic Valves.
