ASSE (PLUMBING) 1062-2006 Performance Requirements for Temperature Actuated Flow Reduction (TAFR) Valves for Individual Fixture Fittings
: Brown Technical Book Store
Applies to Temperature Actuated, Flow Reduction (TAFR) Valves for Individual Supply Fittings which react to high temperature water. These valves are intended for use in-line with or are integrated into individual plumbing supply fittings such as shower heads, bath and utility faucets and sink and lavatory faucets. These devices shall automatically reduce flow within five (5) seconds to 0.25 GPM (0.95 L/m) or less at 80 psi (551.6 kPa) in response to outlet temperatures greater than a preset actuation temperature not to exceed 120 F (48.9 C) so as to limit exposure to high temperature water discharged from an individual supply fitting.
