  • Can be used with single or tow handle mixing valve assemblies
  • Holds a selected water temperature to within +- 3ยบ F degree regardless of pressure change 
  • Fully ported valve with minimal pressure drop 
  • Safe and positive because it is a pressure balancing valve, not a thermostatic mixing valve

Dornbracht: Convenience Through High-Tech

The first electronic product solution for the kitchen from Dornbracht: the different functions of eUnit Kitchen help you with your everyday work in the kitchen. The control elements give you accurate control of water temperature and volume and the foot sensor takes the place of a ”missing“ free hand, allowing water to flow without you having to lift a finger.

Added to this are the electronic strainer waste and a water dispensing function that allows water to be dispensed in precise amounts of 1 litre and 0.1 litre steps. Thanks to its compact construction, the eUnit Kitchen can be situated in 'plug-'n'-play' fashion beneath the sink without taking up too much space.
