Mixing unit and manifold
LEGIO-BOX is a system designed to provide comfort and safety in the distribution of drinking water.
The legionella is a bacterium present in water, which proliferates between 25 °C and 45 °C and gets dangerous for health when inhaled through steam or microdrops, sometimes with fatal effects. In order to eliminate the presence of this bacterium in hot water systems for sanitary applications, it is necessary to bring hot water at a minimum temperature of 60 °C. However, modern thermostatic mixers with anti-scalding function are designed for limiting water temperature up to a maximum temperature of 50 °C, making thermal disinfection impossible for the section from mixer outlet to discharge tap. To solve this problem IVAR has conceived a solution that, by excluding the mixer during anti-legionella cycles, grants the disinfection of the section downstream the mixer to the tap in compliance with the regulatory measures, but at the same time assures temperature control and anti-scalding protection during normal operation.
The LEGIO-BOX system represents the ideal solution for the control of the sanitary water distributed to the user taps, not only in the case of new installations, but also for the modernisation of existing ones.
