3-Way Thermostatic By-Pass Valve for Fin-Tube Baseboard
This valve is designed to be used in either new or retrofit fin-tube baseboard installations to permit ZONE CONTROL OF INDIVIDUAL ROOMS using the non-electric THERMOSTAT, withtout any wiring required whatsoever. The valve is furnished with compression fittings for 3/4" copper tube, and is installed ahead of the fin-tube in the supply side, where the radiation enters the room. Standard copper fittings are used to connect to a bare by-pass tube which will easily fit into most commercially available fin-tube baseboard. A hole is cut into the front cover of the baseboard enclosure for attachment of the THERMOSTAT to the 3-way Valve. This simple installation is repeated in each room.
