To ensure the quality of food and consumable products made available to the public, authoritative agencies such as FDA have outlined sanitation requirements that production facilities must adhere to or risk being fined.
Cleaning food processing machinery or chemical tanks and equipment is not always an easy task. Conventional industrial hose stations, using old pressure-balancing technology that relies on multiple moving parts, are prone to premature failure due to mineral deposits and scaling. The regular maintenance of these units, necessary to keep them running safely, is very time-consuming and costly.
ThermOmegaTech®’s innovative washdown systems include a variety of high-temperature sanitation and maintenance equipment necessary for industrial facilities. This includes steam and water washdown stations, hot water mixing stations, washdown guns, washdown hoses, and to guarantee organization and security of equipment – washdown enclosures.
Washdown stations are used to ensure cleanliness in food processing, dairy, breweries, wineries, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and any other industrial facilities where a high temperature wash down is required.
Washdown Station Options:
ThermOmegaTech® offers three different stations to satisfy almost any facility’s sanitary washdown needs as well as compatibility with their existing steam and/or water supplies.

STVM® Steam & Water Washdown Station
The STVM® Washdown Station provides an effective high-temperature wash in an easy-to-maintain package. Utilizing our patented Silent Venturi Mixing Valve (STVM®) technology, this washdown station mixes steam and water to produce a high-powered wash at a user-defined temperature. Designed to be self-scouring, the mixing valve prevents mineral buildup in tight spaces, decreasing maintenance frequency. To further reduce time spent on regular maintenance, the unit is in-line serviceable. The user simply switches out the STVM® cartridge with a replacement and the unit is back up and running in minutes.
Safety is our priority, so every STVM® Washdown Station has two built-in safety features – interlocking ball valves to prevent steam-only operation, and an automatic shut-off when output is 15°F over the unit’s temperature set-point (either 150°F or 185°F) or when cold water flow is interrupted.

HCX Washdown Station
For facilities without an available steam supply, the HCX Washdown Station is an ideal solution. This unit utilizes individual globe valves to mix hot and cold water to a user-defined temperature, clearly displayed on the integrated temperature gauge.
To prevent accidental scalding, the unit is offered with our unique SmartFlow feature. This over-temperature safety valve automatically stops flow should the unit’s output exceed the factory set-point.

HCS Washdown Station
The HCS Washdown Station simplifies washdown applications even further, providing a high-powered single stream of either cold water or pre-heated hot water at the turn of a ball valve. The unit employs an integrated temperature gauge to confirm output temperature.

By eliminating the conventional method of using fixed flow balancing valves and installing CircuitSolver®s instead we were able to resolve our lack of hot water in some sectors of the hospital issue instantly.
