Steam Component General Configuration

The steam control valve maintains accurate water temperature in a steam fired water heater by regulating the flow of steam through the heating coil.

There are four types of steam control valves available for use on a steam fired storage water heater.

Model ST How It Works
  • Self Operating

    The valve design includes a bulb and capillary assembly charged with a thermally responsive vapor. The expansion/contraction of the vapor acts upon the valve bellows in order to control the flow of steam throught the valve. No external power source is required for operation.
  • Pneumatically Operated

    In this configuration the building air supply feeds a factory installed temperature controller which operates the steam control valve. The temperature controller sends a precise air signal to the steam control valve which adjusts the flow of steam into the heating coil. The temperature controller is fully adjustable from 50-250°F and requires 20 psi air at a maximum consumption of 0.5 SCFM.
  • Pilot Operated

    A pilot operated control valve is the most widely used type of valve for standard water heating applications. In this type of valve, a temperature pilot device utilizes steam to operate the main valve. No external power source is required other than steam. This is a highly dependable temperature control system which is suitable for most commercial and industrial applications. As an option, this valve may include a pressure reducing pilot which limits the steam pressure to a predetermined maximum.
  • Electronic Operated

    This control valve is similar to a pneumatically operated system, except in this case the temperature controller is a PID digital display electronic temperature controller which outputs a 4-20mA signal to a compact motor mounted on the steam control valve in order to proportionally control the flow of steam to the heating coil. The temperature controller displays set point as well as actual water temperature and is available with an RS486 communications port for remote control.

Model ST Specific Questions

What temperature should I set my water heater?

For typical domestic potable hot water service the temperature of your water heater at 125°F is sufficient. This prevents wasted energy (which means cost savings for you) and also decreases the possibility of scalding water burns. If you run out of hot water on this setting, increase the temperature by five degrees incrementally until your hot water needs are met. The goal is to have the temperature set just high enough to meet your needs but within safe operating parameters. Please note that a water heater in and of itself should not be relied upon as the ultimate temperature controlling source for the hot water delivered to your fixtures. Please consult local and state codes for installation of the proper and code approved (ASSE 1016, 1070, 1017) mixing devices to achieve the safe delivery of hot water to the fixtures. For a more complete information please download the whitepaper PDF titled "Understanding Potential Water Heater Scald Hazards" developed by ASSE at the following link ASSE Whitepaper

Is it OK to use softened water with my cement lined tank?

Yes it is OK. A water softener system will not affect the longevity or operation of a Hubbell cement lined water heater tank. A water softener is typically installed when a potable water system has hard water resulting in the need to soften the water. Unfortunately, the salt used in a water softener corrodes the anode rod and exposed steel surfaces of the water heater tank, rapidly causing a glass lined water heater to corrode and leak within a few years. This is an issue for a glass lined water heater due to its reliance on a sacrificial anode, however because a cement lined tank does not use a sacrificial anode softened water is of no concern to the Hubbell cement lined tank.

What is a sacrificial anode and does a cement lined tank need one?

All water heaters constructed using a steel tank requires a lining to protect the internal steel surfaces from corrosion. Certain linings (i.e. glass and epoxy), due to their nature, have unavoidable holes and imperfections resulting in exposure of the steel tank. As a result of this deficiency, the manufacturer will install an anode rod(s) in an attempt to delay corrosion of the steel tank. An anode rod is typically made of aluminum, magnesium or zinc, is a maintenance item that requires periodic inspection and replacement, and is often times the cause of a “rotten egg” odor to your hot water. Often referred to as a sacrificial anode rod because, over time, it slowly dissolves, sacrificing itself as it is attacked by aggressive substances in the water which would otherwise attack the steel tank through the pinholes and imperfections of the glass or epoxy lining. A cement lined steel tank on the other hand does not require an anode because of the thickness and guaranteed 100% coverage of the cement lining over all internal surfaces of the steel tank. This eliminates the need for an anode rod in a cement lined water heater, resulting in a significantly longer life compared to a glass or epoxy lined water heater. For a further discussion please click on the following link Cement Lining

What is the max water temperature setting?

The Hubbell cement lined tank is suitable for storing water up to 194°F. However, it should be noted that your water heater will likely require optional control accessories to achieve this temperature, but there is no concern regarding the ability of the lining to withstand this temperature. Additionally, there are numerous safety concerns that must be considered when storing water at elevated temperature, please consult factory.

What is the delivery time?

In most cases the delivery time for a Hubbell water heater is approximately 10 weeks after release for production, but can be 16 weeks or more depending upon the particular requirements of your application. However, there are various sizes and configurations which Hubbell has in stock for “Quick Ship” (as early as next day t to 2 weeks) to accommodate situations that require shorter delivery. Please consult with your Hubbell Sales Engineer to discuss delivery times for your application.

What should I know about Legionella disease?

Legionella is the bacteria responsible for Legionnaire’s Disease, an acute bacterial infection of the lower respiratory tract. This bacterium was first identified in 1977 by the Centers for Disease Control as the cause of an outbreak of pneumonia that caused 34 deaths at a 1976 American Legion Convention in Philadelphia. Pontiac Fever is a less severe, non-pneumonia, flu-like disease that is associated with and likely caused by Legionella bacteria. Legionella is a fairly common water bacterium and has been found to exist widely in many surface water sources including lakes, rivers, streams and ponds. It can also be found in ground water sources and some soils. At the levels found in these naturally occurring sources it typically does not pose a threat to public health. When the bacterium enters a domestic water system it can find an ideal host environment of warm water temperatures (105-115°F), stagnant water areas (isolated storage tanks and dead-end piping legs) and ample food sources (sediment, scale, deposits and biofilm). Under these conditions Legionella can rapidly colonize, forming higher concentrations that can pose the public health threat of Legionnaire’s Disease. There are many methods of controlling colonization of Legionella bacteria. However, a widely accepted and preferred method is to maintain the hot water system storage temperature continually at or above 140°F. Unfortunately, the elevated temperature necessary to minimize the growth of and kill Legionella bacteria has the potential to cause serious thermal shock and scalding injuries. As such, many plumbing engineers will specify that the water heater be set to maintain water temperatures at 140°F or higher to reduce the risk of Legionella, but then specify the appropriate mixing valve to ensure safe delivery of hot water to the fixtures. For a more thorough discussion of Legionella please go to here and the following link to the US Department of Labor OSHA information regarding Legionnaires’ Disease OSHA here
