Are those tempering valves I see there? What are they servicing?

What is it that I see there that mixes the water?

Can't you just control the temp setting coming out of those heater via the on board circuit controller, no?

What type of tempering valves are those?

Most of em in critical locations have a fail-safe cold water bypass built in. Those get expensive real quick.

You could tell by the ASSE #

Those are real cheap heaters. The mixers are ASSE stamped.They only put out a couple of gallons a minute, but that's all they need. They will only run the sink or the shower, not both at one time. If more than one person gets crapped up at a time, tough.
i'm glad they didn't waste alot of money to wash down someone who was contaminated :eek:

I'm not trying to pick your stuff apart but, why didn't you just go with a single temperature modulating heater and just turn the thing down?

It just seems so over complicated for no reason.

If I was a guessing man they only use one at a time. redundancy is crucial in a piece of equipment that important.

ILPlumber nailed it. Everything at a nuke has redundancy built in. Except for the pump that pushes the contamonated water to a holding tank. About 7000 grand, and they only got one. It's in a little plastic basin, and the superintendant had me stub out too low to hit the factory connection. I was one sweating, nervous plumber doing the lay out and holesawing on the basin:cry: I hit everything dead nuts, though:thumbup:
