Bethlehem Area School District Digital Water Mixing
What the Client Needed
Bethlehem Area School District replaced their outdated mechanical mixing valves that were deteriorated and leaking, causing hot water loss with a new digital solution. “At the beginning of the week, we’d walk into the mechanical room, check the systems and temps that had [assuredly] drifted,” said Scott Yandrasitz, BASD master plumber. “We wanted a solution that would be something similar to what we already had, but we needed a precise, reliable replacement that would eliminate the need for [frequent] maintenance.”
Warminster, PA based Vernon Bitzer Associates recommended Powers™ IntelliStation® Jr. digital water mixing valve. The successful installation of the IntelliStation Jr. eliminated the issues of hot water loss in the schools. Additional IntelliStation Jr. digital mixing valves have been installed in additional schools in the district.
