Title (EN) ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLABLE VALVES AND MIXING VALVES
(FR) VANNES À COMMANDE ÉLECTRONIQUE ET VANNES DE MÉLANGE
Abstract:
(EN) Two problems with existing electronically controlled mixing valves for domestic use is their size and difficulty accessing and repairing them. Their size means that they often become hidden behind wall linings, and because of the way in which they are plumbed into the pipework of a house, they are difficult to access and remove for repair or replacement. The solution proposed in the present invention is a compact and replaceable mixing valve cartridge that can be mated to a fixed fitting that is permanently plumbed into the pipework of a house. The compact size allows the cartridge to be positioned behind the type of removable face plates that are often installed over existing manually operated mixing valves. Simplified valve actuators and a compact mixing and temperature sensing configuration have facilitated the compact size. The valve cartridge can simply be accessed, unbolted and removed, without the need for extensive plumbing re-work.
(FR) Deux problèmes rencontrés avec des vannes de mélange à commande électronique existantes à usage domestique sont leur taille et leur difficulté d'accès et de réparation de celles-ci. Leur taille implique qu'elles sont souvent cachées derrière les revêtements muraux, et en raison de la façon dont elles sont branchées dans la tuyauterie d'une maison, elles sont difficiles d'accès et à retirer pour la réparation ou le remplacement. La solution proposée dans la présente invention est une cartouche de vanne de mélange compacte et remplaçable qui peut être accouplée à un raccord fixe qui est branchée de façon permanente dans la tuyauterie d'une maison. La taille compacte permet à la cartouche d'être positionnée derrière le type de plaques de face amovibles qui sont souvent installées sur des vannes de mélange actionnées manuellement existantes. Des actionneurs de soupape simplifiés et une configuration compacte de mélange et de détection de température ont facilité l'obtention d'une taille compacte. L'accès à la cartouche de valve est d'accès facile, et elle peut être déboulonnée et retirée, sans avoir besoin d'une refonte complète de plomberie.
