As an option available for eye-face washes (or eye washes), the 1/2 inch Scald Protection Valve will initiate flow when the thermostatic actuator senses a temperature of 98°F (36.7°C). It is typically piped to a drain and thereby purges the unsafe water and brings fresh/safe water to the valve/fixture. The valve will remain open (fully open at 105°F (40.6°C)) until it senses a safe temperature of 95°F or less at which point it will automatically close (resetting itself).
