HCX Washdown Station


Combining simplicity and cost effectiveness, the HCX (Hot and Cold Water Mixing) washdown station utilizes individual globe valves to mix hot and cold water to the desired proportion while clearly displaying the output temperature through an integrated temperature gauge.

The HCX station is available in stainless steel or brass/bronze construction and can be ordered with our exclusive SmartFlow feature. This thermostatically controlled in-line safety shutoff valve will reduce flow should the outlet temperature exceed the factory set point and shut down 10°F above that with a minimal amount of leakage. Available set-point temperatures are 125°F, 135°F, 150°F.

This unit is not designed for steam service. Please refer to our STVM® Washdown Station product sheet for steam and water mixing applications.

Typical Applications

The HCX hot and cold water washdown station is used for cleaning processing tanks and equipment in food processing, dairy, breweries, wineries, and other facilities where high-temperature washdown is required. The HCX should be applied in facilities that do not have an available steam supply.
