Choosing an Intellifaucet, a
control valve or a
The Intellifaucet E Series is our general purpose mixing valve. It includes 13 preset temperature settings from 55 to 115 °F, plus All Cold and All Hot. Our Intellifaucet D Series was developed specifically for photolabs. It comes with 15 presets selected by professional photolabs for color and black & white processing. The Intellifaucet K Series offers more flexibility and control, offering 0.1 degree temperature settings from 40 to 140 °F. Please use the guide below to aid in your selection.
1. Determine the flow rate required. (1-2 GPM is typical for home darkrooms)
Use our interactive Valve Sizing Calculator to determine the size valve you need. Select a material that is appropriate for your application. Choose an EPV if you don't need a watertight electrical enclosure or an ECV if you do need a NEMA 4X watertight enclosure.
If you need to control both batch and temperature, then consider the Intellifaucet Batch and Temperature Control System. If you need just a batching system with one inlet pipe and one outlet, then select a batching system using a controller, a solenoid valve and a check valve. We do not make or sell batch-only systems.
To select the proper Intellifaucet Batch System, determine 1. How much water you need per batch, and 2. How much time is allowed for the water to fill the container. Each Intellifaucet is rated in gallons per minute, so you simply divide the total gallons needed per batch by the time allowed per batch to get your required flow rate. Then select the Intellifaucet that has the capacity to deliver that flow rate.
Example: You need 85 pounds of water per batch and you have 2 minutes for the water fill. Divide 85 by 8.5 gallons per pound to get gallons. Divide 10 gallons by 2 minutes to get 5 GPM. Select the Intellifaucet BC375, which is rated for 12 GPM at 50 psi pressure drop.
