Performance Requirements for Temperature Actuated, Flow Reduction (TAFR) Valves for Individual Supply Fittings
|Publication Date:||1 October 2006|
This standard applies to TAFR Valves for Individual Supply Fittings which react to high temperature water. These valves are intended for use in-line with or are integrated into individual plumbing supply fittings such as shower heads, & bath, utility, sink & lavatory faucets. They shall automatically reduce flow within 5 seconds in response to outlet temperatures greater than a preset actuation temperature, not to exceed 120°F, to limit exposure to high temperature water discharged from an individual supply fitting.
