RAISING THE BAR
The new patented ECOTHERM thermostatic
mixing valve range has been designed with safety
as a paramount consideration. All valves are
watermarked and approved to AS/NZS 4032.1
incorporating Australian ingenuity, quality and
durability to allow compliance with the national
plumbing standard AS/NZS 3500.
With over 12 years of experience in the heating
control valve market AVG is proud to offer to the
market the new ECOTHERM range of valves.

PROUDLY AUSTRALIAN MADE
CUTTING EDGE INNOVATION
DESIGNED WITH EXCELLENT
SCALD PROTECTION
The ECOTHERM thermostatic mixing valve has
been developed with the installer and service
provider in mind. The valve is supplied complete
and requires no assembly. Plumbing
connections are available
in 15mm and 20mm
configurations complete
with compression nuts
and olives. The hot and
cold and mixed water inlets
and outlets are provided with
integral isolation ball valves.
The valve design also incorporates optional hot
untempered and cold water bypass plumbing
connections as standard with integral isolation ball
valves. Hot and cold pressure gauges are included
as standard with the ECOTHERM to assist the
installer and service provider to confirm balanced
inlet pressures. Note: for optimum performance
it is recommended that the inlet pressures be
balanced to within ± 10%.

PERFORMANCE
PERFORMANCE
Temperature stability is a pre requisite for the ECOTHERM thermostatic mixing
valve range which incorporates the internationally acclaimed technical advantages
of the VERNET CA43 thermostatic cartridge. The valve geometry and water flow
ways have been engineered to minimise temperature fluctuations at the point of
use where variations in water supply temperatures and pressure occur.
Australian ingenuity within the design ensures the ECOTHERM has excellent
control during an ambient start up, preventing temperature spikes at the outlet.
To maintain a constant mixed water temperature control the ECOTHERM will
maintain± 2°C accuracy from the original set temperature after any fluctuation
of the water temperature or pressure within the plumbing system. All valves are
factory pre-set to 38°C, pressure tested and the anti-scald function is individually
checked.
The ECOTHERM thermostatic mixing valve will perform equally well in any
orientation and has ball valve control from either side of the valve. Each ECOTHERM
is supplied with a comprehensive technical installation, commissioning, service,
maintenance and troubleshooting booklet.

STAINLESS STEEL
BYPASS BALL VALVE
The ECOTHERM thermostatic mixing valve can be fitted with
stainless steel isolation ball valves for those installations requiring
extra by pass plumbing.
The purpose built ball valve is all directional with tamper proof
isolation from either side of the valve depending on which
orientation the ball valve is fitted. The outlet fitting of the ball valve
is available in 15mm and 20mm and can be either a swiveling elbow
or a straight union connection.
Examples of the ECOTHERM by pass stainless steel ball valve can
be seen in the plumbed box configuration examples shown.
Refer to the images of the ball valve showing the swiveling elbow
and the straight union connection.

ECOTHERM
CONFIGURATIONS AND
BY- PASS OPTIONS
The ECOTHERM thermostatic mixing valve basic module is the foundation
building block for a myriad of plug in plumbing and by pass options.
AVG offers a concealed box with a locked stainless steel door to prevent
unauthorized access to the thermostatic mixing valve. The concealed
box can be provided plumbed with copper tails or alternatively with male
compression connections complete with nuts and olives.
The base configuration plumbed with tails, offers hot,cold and mixed water
connections in 15mm or 20mm or a mixture of both. All water connections
can access the ECOTHERM from above or below or side entry to suit the
individual installation requirements.
If the hydraulic design requires
untempered hot or cold with
isolation located within the
concealed box, the ECOTHERM
comes standard with 15mm,
20mm or a mixture of both
plumbed by pass options.
In addition to or inclusive of the
standard by pass options the
ECOTHERM can be plumbed
utilizing the stainless steel
all directional swivel by pass
isolation ball valve. The ball
valve assembly can be plumbed
with either an all directional
swivel elbow for either above or
below entry or with a straight
connection for side entry. This
additional by pass option can
be plumbed in either 15mm, 20mm or a combination of both.

TMV MONITORING
SYSTEM
The ECOTHERM thermostatic mixing valve is also available
with the ECOTEMP temperature monitoring system which
provides institutions with performance data on the day to
day operation of the thermostatic mixing valves installed.
This function answers the need by government authorities to
provide safeguards for patients and carers. The ECOTEMP
monitoring system also addresses the NSW health
department requirements for monthly temperature readings.
This is a time consuming task which will free up plumbing
maintenance personnel to carry out other tasks and to save
time and money. The ECOTEMP monitoring system is able
to provide the maintenance personnel with a print out of the
performance of each individual ECOTHERM thermostatic
mixing valve throughout the facility.
• 24 hour monitoring
• Alert status alarm
• Automatic temperature logging
• Statistical reports to assist maintenance personnel
• Reporting program tailored to the engineering
staff requirements
• Optional thermistor protocols
• The ECOTEMP thermostatic mixing valve
monitoring system is ideal for new installations
