Model 2033SS-FMCD — Stainless Steel
STEAMIX® Model 2033SS-FMCD is a steam/water mixing valve
of Type 304 stainless steel construction. The valve is supplied as
standard with all stainless steel (SS) integral inlet supply risers
comprising 3/4" Y-type strainers and 3/4" ball valves cross-linked by a
stainless steel bridge piece and lever for simultaneous on/off control
of both inlet supplies. The unit is supplied fully assembled,
pressure-tested and installed on a stainless steel hose rack.
STEAMIX Model 2033SS-FMCD includes a Stainless Steel dual-scale top
mount Thermometer, 25 feet of “safety yellow” washdown hose rated, SS
rubber cushioned spray nozzle with SS swivel adapter, a stainless steel
nozzle hook and SS inlet check valves.
STEAMIX Model 2033SS-FMCD includes Type-304 stainless steel,
two-door cabinet with a 2" (50 mm) flange, and it is designed for
recessed installation. The cabinet doors have a recessed “toggle”
handle. All exposed surfaces have a #4 brushed finish. The bottom of the
cabinet is crosscut to drain any water accidentally discharged within
FMCD cabinets are manufactured to order and can be modified to
include customer requirements such as increased dimensions, vacuum
breakers, compressed air and/or fluid lines, pressure-reducing valves
and gauges, extra hose lengths, and more.
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 can be supplied with either a
single-temperature lockout or a maximum temperature-limiting option.
