Special safety valve for towel rail
Our customer is one of the major manufacturers of home comfort solutions and specifically, fixed radiators and designer electric or hot-water towel rails.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM
The Electric towel rails' operation
Towel rails contain a heating element that heats the fluid inside them - usually a mix of water and glycol. When the radiator reaches the set temperature, a thermostat will disconnect the heating element. There is a risk that electronics are not reliable and therefore, customers need the device to be fitted with a mechanical safety valve to guarantee that any excess pressure can be bled out in the event that the heating element fails to switch off at the set temperature.
