Thermostats in hot water

ATC Semitec has introduced a range of pipe-mounting disc thermostats to ensure better control of hot and cold water systems. The SJW6 series can be used on pipes from 10mm-16mm diameter using integral tight-fitting stainless steel clips. The thermostat also has a curved base to improve the contact area with the pipe thus maximising its thermal response. Available with normally-open or normally-closed contacts, the SJW6 can be supplied with differentials down to 6K and tolerances of +/-3K on the opening and closing temperatures. This helps to achieve highly accurate temperature control as well as minimising energy use.
