3-Way and 4-Way Mixing Valves
ESBE Type F valves are ideal for mixing or diverting applications in heating and cooling systems. The mixing proportions are adjusted manually or controlled by the means of a motorized actuator that receives an input signal from a reset controller or DDC system. The scale is graduated on both sides and can be turned, allowing a choice of mounting positions.
Features and benefits
Rotary design allows for flexibility in field piping layouts.
Double mixing function for 4-way valve, reduces the risk of condensation within the heat source.
Valve position face plate is printed on both sides and can be rotated allowing a choice of valve mounting positions.
Easily adaptable with the following ESBE motorized actuators:
- 90 Series (electronic)
- ARC/ARD Series.
Suitable fluid of 100% water or glycol mixture (maximum 50% glycol) for heating or cooling closed loop systems.
Ideal for mixing or diverting applications in heating and cooling systems. The required system temperature is obtained by adding a suitable portion of return water to the boiler flow. The mixing proportions are adjusted manually or, in automatically controlled applications, by means of an actuator (driven from a reset controller or DDC system). The scale is graduated on both sides and can be turned, allowing a choice of mounting positions.
Designed for use in commercial or residential heating and cooling systems, to control and distribute water or non-corrosive liquids to different zones. The ESBE four-way valve features a double mixing function. When hot water from the boiler is mixed with the return water, the temperature of the returned water rises (higher than can be achieved with a 3- way valve), reducing the risk of condensation and assuring a longer boiler life. The mixing proportions can be adjusted manually, or in automatically controlled applications, by means of a control actuator. The scale is graduated on both sides and can be turned, allowing a choice of mounting positions.
Sets for use with ESBE F Series 4-way mixing valves.

ESBE VRG Mixing Valves
The ESBE VRG series is a range of compact, low leakage brass valves. Available in either a 3-way or 4-way versions suitable in either mixing or diverting applications.
When assembled with the ARA600 or 90 Series motorized actuator, and wired to a controller, the VRG assembly provides regulating accuracy.
ESBE ARC/ARD Series High Torque Actuators
The ESBE ARC/ ARD series of high torque rotary, low voltage, motorized actuators provide a 90°operating range of rotation. Suitable for assembly to ESBE Type F series, 3 and 4-way valves that range from 2” to 6” in size and alternatively applied as damper actuators.
ESBE CRA Series Setpoint Controls
The ESBE CRA Series of setpoint controls includes a combined motorized actuator and constant flow temperature control with an adjustable temperature setting.
The easy to use CRA series includes an LCD backlit digital display and is available in two varieties; the CRA112 - for use with ESBE valves up to 2", and the CRA122 - for use with all sizes of ESBE valves.
ESBE 90 Series Actuators
The ESBE 90 Series of 24V electronic motorized actuators are direct mount to rotate ESBE 3 & 4-way rotary valves in hydronic heating and cooling applications. The 90 Series motorized actuator provides additional torque compared to the ARA series, and can be installed on all ESBE 3 & 4-way rotary valves, in sizes from ½” to 6”. 90 Series linkage kits are also available capable of adapting the motorized actuator to Viessmann, Honeywell, Centra DR/ZR, Landis & Staefa and TA VTR styles of valves.
