Model E80WR – Actuated – Hot/Cold Water Mixers – Emech™ Digital Control Valves


The 3-port valve utilizes a unique shear action disc technology and swirl-mix body geometry to provide high performance dynamic fluid mixing. The nature of the valve seat design minimizes disc wear, outperforming conventionally seated valves, minimizing seal replacement and plant downtime. Fitted with the electronic actuator and a temperature sensor inserted into the outlet pipe, the system delivers high-performance stand-alone closed-loop temperature control.

The calibrated temperature feedback signal in combination with the fast acting actuator provides temperature control accuracy to ± 2°F (± 1°C) over a 32°F – 212°F (0°C – 100°C) control range, capable of blending from 0% to 100% of either inlet temperature. Even with sudden changes of inlet pressure and temperature to the valve, the actuator controller aggressively minimizes outlet temperature variations, making the system ideal for use in industrial applications as a simple stand-alone or integrated mixing solution.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Consult the “Installation, Operation and Maintenance” Manual (IOM) to review key requirements, recommendations and considerations when planning your installation.
    Failure to do so may affect the performance of the product. A copy of the IOM is provided with the product.

    • Illustration shows standard system format for actuator/valve orientation, installed calibrated NTC temperature probe with installation tap kit and ASME B16.5 Class 150 end connections on the valve.
    • Hot and cold input ports can be interchanged, and alternative orientations of the actuator on the valve can be specified.
    • Class 300 flange option is available on indent, but not pressure rated to ASME CI 300.
    • Please consult with the Armstrong factory at time of order placement if you require non standard format product for your installation.
