Model 2030SS — Stainless Steel
STEAMIX® Model 2030SS is a steam/water mixing valve of Type 304 stainless steel construction.
STEAMIX® Steam and Water Hose Stations and Mixing Units will not pass live steam.
Steamix mixing valve, featured on all Steamix steam and water hose stations by Armstrong, will not pass live steam in the event of either a significant pressure reduction or complete failure of the cold-water supply.
Steamix is designed to improve efficiency and reduce risk when
mixing steam and water for washdown. When your process demands high
washdown temperatures, adjusting the mix of steam and water becomes much
more difficult and dangerous. With the older style dual-globe valve
mixing “Y,” it is too easy to introduce too much steam—with risky
consequences for your personnel. Here’s why it’s no problem with
- In the event of either a complete failure of the inlet cold-water
supply or a reduction in cold-water pressure to below 20 (+/-5) psi (1.4
bar), STEAMIX will respond with a complete shutdown of outlet flow.
- If there is a structural failure of the primary operating component (diaphragm), STEAMIX will “fail safe” to cold water.
- To prevent over-temperature selection by the user and the potential
for overheated water and flash steam presentation common with other
types of hose stations, STEAMIX is supplied with a single-temperature
