This is the first edition of ASSE 1070/ASME A112.1070/CSA B125.70, Performance requirements for water temperature limiting devices. It
(a) supersedes ASSE 1070:2004, Performance requirements for water temperature limiting devices; and
(b) replaces the requirements for automatic temperature limiting devices in CSA B125.3, Plumbing fittings.
This Standard covers water temperature limiting devices intended to limit the hot or tempered water temperature supplied to fittings for fixtures such as sinks, bidets, lavatories, and bathtubs to reduce the risk of scalding. These devices are not designed to address thermal shock.
Note: Unless otherwise specified in this Standard, water temperature limiting devices are referred to as devices.
In this Standard, shall is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; should is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and may is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.
Notes accompanying sections do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a section is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.
Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.
Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
SI units are the units of record in Canada. In this Standard, the inch/pound units are shown in parentheses.
The values stated in each measurement system are equivalent in application; however, each system is to be used independently. Combining values from the two measurement systems can result in non-conformance with this Standard.
