Warminster, PA (PRWEB) January 03, 2013 -- Therm-Omega-Tech, the global leader in the design and manufacture of self-actuating temperature control valves, announced today that its Circuit Solver™ valve for domestic hot water systems is now approved by the Board of State Examiners of Plumbers and Gas Fitters for installation in Massachusetts.
“We are excited that Circuit Solver has been approved for sale and installation in Massachusetts,” said James Logue Jr., President and CEO of Therm-Omega-Tech. “Massachusetts has a strict policy when it comes to plumbing systems. This approval further cements Circuit Solver as the best solution for domestic hot water delivery problems.”
Water flows to the path of least resistance and many buildings require multiple branches off the hot water supply line. Since hot water use is dynamic, the path of least resistance is constantly changing and manual balancing valves cannot properly resolve these issues. Circuit Solver fixes this problem when installed on the end of each supply branch. Additionally, it eliminates the need for oversized recirculating pumps, minimizes heat-loss by reducing fluctuations in average temperature and flow rate, and lowers flow in hot water return lines minimizing erosion-corrosion problems caused by excessive velocity. The result is a dramatic reduction in water waste, energy savings, and greatly improved comfort and satisfaction from all users of the domestic hot water system.
When entering water temperature is below Circuit Solver's set point, the thermal actuator will begin to open the valve to establish a flow rate that will achieve set point. If the water temperature exceeds the set point, the valve will begin to throttle back flow as required. Continuously operating at the optimum temperature minimizes system heat-loss thereby saving water and energy. This constant, automatic response to water temperature enables each hot water branch to quickly and consistently deliver the right temperature of hot water to each connected fixture. The valve, which is constructed of all stainless steel, complies with California AB1953, and meets NSF-61 standards.
Circuit Solver is currently available for sale. More information is available at http://www.CircuitSolver.com. Appointments for a live discussion with engineers from Therm-Omega-Tech can also be made through the website to determine if Circuit Solver is the right solution for any hot water distribution challenge.
