Blending Valve Adjustment Procedure

IMPORTANT NOTES:
•TypicalTDS(TotalDissolvedSolids)valuesforcoffeeare80-200ppmandoccasionallylowerforespresso,dependingupontaste 

preference. 

 The blending valve should be set at start-up and checked periodically, for example when changing filter cartridges. The valve is a 

precision metering valve, that may be locked by tightening lock nut.

•Inordertosettheblendingvalve,bypassvalvemustbeclosed.ThesystemTDSoutputcanbemeasuredviatheTDSmeterposition

“out”. The system TDS input can be measured via the TDS meter position “in”.

 

  1. Close the outlet shut-off valve to downstream equipment and the tank shut-off valve and open the RO sample valve at the tank.

 

  3. To adjust blending, rotate the blending valve to the left (counterclockwise) to increase the product water TDS and to the right  

 

 

  (clockwise) to decrease the product water TDS. The valve should be opened intermittently at 1.0 to 1.5 turns at a time. Check the  

 

  

TDS after each incremental adjustment and again two (2) minutes after the desired TDS value is reached. Re-adjust and check, as needed. 

 

  4.  Lock the blending valve using the lock nut.

  

IMPORTANT NOTE: The TDS Meter is push-button operated and requires two (2) 357A batteries. (included in TDS meter)

To Attach Tubing

To Release Tubing

Push tubing straight in as far as it 
will go

Tubing is secured in.

Push in collet to release tubing.

Pull tubing straight out.

This product is outfitted with a user friendly ‘Push In’ connector at the vent valve. Proper use of the connectors is shown in the figure below. It is most 
important that the tubing selected for use with these connectors be of high quality, exact size and roundness, and with no surface nicks or scratches.  
If it is necessary to cut the tubing, use a plastic tubing cutter or sharp razor knife. Make a clean square cut. Should a leak occur at a “Push-In” 
connector, the cause is usually a problem with the tubing.
  To Fix: 

 

   

1. Relieve pressure  

2. Release tubing    

3. Cut off at least 1/4” from end   

 

4. Reattach tubing   

5. Confirm connection is leak free
