Poker, Full, and Sensor: radiator valves and thermostatic heads

Radiator valves and lockshields control the flow of water in radiators and fancoils that are connected to hot or cold water distribution systems. The Monoblocco Emmeti unique fittings can link radiator valves and lockshields to steel, copper, and PeX/Al/PeX multilayer pipes.

The manual valve can be replaced with a thermostatic valve, and the shutter with a thermostatic shutter. This process is simple to do, and draining the system is unnecessary.

What is the difference between manual, thermostatic, and thermostatizable radiator valves?

Thermostatic radiator valves are designed to be used only with the thermostatic head, so they cannot operate without it and only come with a protection cap.
In addition, the thermostatizable radiator valves can be used with the manual handle or by removing the manual handle and installing a thermostatic head.
Finally, manual radiator valves can only be used with the manual handle and cannot work with a thermostatic head.

How can I set the thermostatic head to have a room temperature of 20 °C?

The room temperature of 20 °C is reached when the thermostatic head is in position 3. However, the result depends on how the air moves in the room; curtains, radiator guards, or wrong installations can cause a variation in the needed temperature.

Once the thermostatic head is installed, the valve does not completely close the radiator. Why?

It could be due to improper installation, or the thermostatic head might have been partially fixed on the valve. It is important to check whether or not the red and blue stoppers are installed. If they are installed, they limit the open and closed positions.

Is it necessary to remove the brass plug to set a lockshield?

It is not necessary. There is a white plastic plug on the side of the lockshield, which can be removed to reach the setting screw quickly.
