Three way thermostatic valve
AMOT Model B Thermostatic Control Valves are fully automatic, 3-way fluid temperature control valves for diverting or mixing applications. They provide reliable control of fluid temperatures in engine jacket water and lubrication oil cooling systems. These valves are suitable for process control and industrial applications where fluids must be mixed or diverted depending on their temperatures. They may also be applied to cogeneration systems to control temperatures in the heat recovery loop assuring proper engine cooling and maximizing heat recovery.

Amot BO-valve model code example:
(See also table in data sheet p. 8)
3BOCB1000100AA: 3'' valve without manual override (BO), cast iron(C), flange PN10 (B), 100°F element (100), standard element without override with buna N/Nitrile seal(01), leak hole size (0), leak hole number (0, no customer customization (AA)
33BOCB1000100AA: same as above, but with three elements
4BOCB1000100AA: above, but 4'' valve
4BOCB0950100AA: above, but with 95°F element
The valve is supplied with the temperature element assemblies factory-set to the nominal temperature setting. Temperature is sensed at Port A which remains open to Port B (bypass) until the fluid temperature reaches a point 5 - 10°F (3 - 6°C) below the nominal setting. As the temperature continues to rise, the sliding valve moves to close off Port B and open Port C (connected to the cooler or heat exchanger) Port B is fully closed 8 - 10°F (4 - 6°C) above the nominal setting. The valve continually modulates the fluid flow to maintain the nominal temperature. For optimum control the system should be sized so about half the total fluid flow is passing through the cooler at full load.
