Rada Thermostatic Mixing Valves are precision engineered to give continued superior and safe performance provided: 1. They are installed, commissioned, operated and maintained in accordance with the recommendations provided and accepted plumbing practices. 2. Periodic attention is given, as necessary, to maintain the product, the accessory fittings and the plumbing system in good functional order. In keeping with every other mechanical product, Rada Mixing Valves should not be considered as functionally infallible and, as such, will never totally replace the vigilance and attention of facility nursing/bathing or other institutional supervisory or industrial safety staff. Provided that they are installed, commissioned, operated and maintained, the risk of product failure and its associated consequences, if not eliminated, are reduced to the minimum achievable.

(ASSE 1017 certification requires exposure to 200°F (93°C) for a period of 30 minutes). Prolonged operation of the mixing valve at such elevated temperatures is not recommended. **Rada 50 can be supplied with a high temperature thermostat for applications where the outlet temperature required is greater than 130°F (54°C). *** Maximum flow rate determined at 9 ft/sec pipeline velocity. 3 Rada 50 Installation The Rada 50 Thermostatic Mixing Valve must be installed as per the piping schematic provided below. Failure to follow this directive will compromise valve/system performance, void all warranties and may create a user comfort issue and safety concern. Armstrong has Rada technical support personnel available from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST. Call Toll Free 1-888-HOT HOSE. Notes: 1. Rada 50 may be installed in a vertical or horizontal position. 2. Rada 50 must be installed in a standard HOT-LEFT/COLD-RIGHT inlet supply configuration. There are red (hot) and blue (cold) markings on each valve. The inlet supplies must always match the corresponding inlet ports on the valve. 3. Be sure to thoroughly flush the pipework before fitting the Rada 50. A good quality “Y” type strainer (40 mesh minimum) should be installed on hot and cold water inlets to mixing valve. 4. Be sure to “make up” all “sweat” or “soldered” fittings ahead of time. Do not expose Rada 50 or any of its fittings to extreme temperatures (such as an acetylene or propane torch). 5. Rada 50 is pre-set at the factory to a fixed outlet temperature. It is highly unlikely that the installation site conditions will match the test conditions. As such: RADA 50 MUST BE PRE-SET ON SITE BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL. Rada 50 set up (commissioning) protocol is included on page 5. 6. Rada 50 requires service access beneath the bonnet assembly. A minimum access clearance of 18” is suggested. Rada 50 Piping Schematic Hot Water Supply High Importance: Install "Y" Strainers on each Inlet Supply Mixed Flow 50 Cold Water Supply 4 Commissioning the Rada 50 Commissioning must be carried out in accordance with these instructions, and must be conducted by designated, qualified and competent personnel. Ensure that the hot and cold supplies are at their designated pressures and temperatures. Open mixed water outlet and wait until the hot and cold inlet temperatures are stable. Note the mixed water temperature. If the mixed water temperature requires adjustment, turn the adjusting key clockwise (Photo 5-1) to reduce the temperature or counterclockwise to increase the temperature. Turn the key only 1/2 turn at a time and allow a few seconds for the temperature to stabilize. Photo 5-1 Fixed Temperature Setting Remove and store the key. Rada 50 is supplied with a removable temperature adjustment key. The temperature adjustment spindle is protected by a lock shield mechanism to discourage unauthorized adjustment. Rada 50 Servicing and Maintenance Rada 50 Thermostatic Mixing Valves should be inspected annually, or more frequently where acknowledged site conditions such as high mineral content water dictate. To service the Rada 50 proceed as follows: Isolate/by-pass the valve by turning off each inlet supply. Isolate the outlet. Step 1. Turn the adjustment screw, using the Temperature Adjustment key (Part No. D18462) provided, counter clockwise until it comes to a stop. To make resetting easier after service, count the number of turns to full stop and note them in the box provided. Refer to Photo 5-2. Adjustment screw turns Photo 5-2 Step 2.
