LK 548 AquaKit
LK 548 is AquaKit a valve combination for water heating consisting of a shut-off/check valve and a thermostatic mixing valve. The shut-off valve closes the cold water inlet and has an integrated check valve preventing recirculation of warm water into the incoming cold water pipe. The mixing valve regulates the supply of cold water in order to achieve the desired temperature. The shut-off/check valve has two connections with female thread M ½” for fitting of a safety relief valve, vacuum breaker or filling valve.
Arrows on the valve body indicate the direction of the flow.
KV = incoming cold water
VV = incoming hot water
BV = outgoing warm water
Female thread connections are designed for the LK Armatur O-ring seal system. Other components are fitted in the usual way. When fitting to a male thread connection, adapter LK 373 is used – see under Accessories.
When fitted on top of boiler/storage tanks with built-in water heaters the valve combination should be installed with some space between boiler/storage tank and valve combination so as not to let the function of the valve combination be affected by heat radiation.
The valve knob is used to set the desired warm water tempe-rature within the range of 38 °C to 65 °C. The maximum temperature can be calibrated as follows:
Increasing the maximum temperature:
Turn the knob anticlockwise to (+). Loosen the screw and move the knob out to the side. Then turn the knob clockwise to (-) without it being engaged. Adjustments are carried out in small steps. A ¼ turn corresponds to approximately 7 °C. Reinstall the knob and check that it engages with the teeth. Tighten the screw and then turn the knob to max (+). Max calibration for increasing the temperature is a ½ turn.
Reducing the maximum temperature:
Do the procedure in reverse. Turn the knob clockwise to (-) and the disengaged knob anticlockwise to (+).
