One Pipe Steam Valve
 
 
Operation
The Macon one-pipe steam valve assembly consists of the reliable B26000 direct mounting thermostat. The thermostatic head contains a temperature sensitive wax which expands and contracts on a rise and fall of temperature in the sensed area. When the temperature rises above the temperature selected, pressure from the expanding wax closes the valve, preventing or restricting the flow of steam through the radiation unit. When the room temperature drops below the selected temperature, the valve opens and allows an increase of steam flow through the radiation unit. This modulating process continues automatically to maintain the temperature you selected.
 
Important:
1 Installing the Macon one-pipe steam valve assembly does not eliminate other controls in the system. The boiler must be cycled in some manner.
2 If the boiler is cycled from a space thermostat in one zone, do not apply a radiator valve to that zone's radiation.
3 Do not apply a radiator valve in a one-pipe steam system that does not use steam air vents venting to the atmosphere on each radiation unit.
4 Vacuum break is required for proper operation.
5 Vacuum break is required for proper operation.
Connections: 1/8" male NPT inlet
