Coming to market in mid-January 2012, the new steam range currently consists of two valves: the EV215B and the EV225B. Made from dezincification resistant brass, and with a floating polymer disc and a stainless steel seat, the valve bodies are extremely resilient.
What makes the range truly versatile is that by attaching one of three different coils – designed to cope with temperatures up to 140°C, 160°C or 185°C – the valves can be tailored to meet a range of application needs. All the coils are clip-on, which make mounting and service quick and easy. And with an IP65, the two coils are highly resistant to aggressive technical steam and impurities.
The dirt resistant EV225B is ideal for heating water in laundry machines and dishwashers. The high-pressure resistance of the EV215B makes it perfect for steam injection applications, such as flat irons and dryers. Both valves are also suitable for autoclaves and steam sterilisers, while the EV225B and the EV215B are suited to smaller systems.
