The KWCS flow splitter is a flow-control valve that provides the plumbing designer with an innovative option for designing piping layouts for both hot- and coldwater distribution, Kemper Water Control Systems says. Designed to minimize the risk of Legionella in potable water, the flow splitter valve automatically directs water circulation into every room, providing a constant exchange of fresh water (24/7) even if the room is unoccupied. The flow splitter facilitates distribution loops within inches of each fixture, which eliminates dead legs and reduces stagnation. The valve also helps designers comply with model plumbing code requirements and the 2018 IEEC Energy Code; Section C404.5.1, which reduces the length of non-circulating pipe from the fixture to the hot-water source.
