    I am looking for a 28mm radiator valve which is non-electric (bi-metalic or such like) which will open above a given temperature say at 80 degrees.

    I have a hot water store which is connected to a wood stove in parallel with a massive burn off radiator. What I am finding is the the temperature seems to self limit at about 60 odd degrees due the radiator. I really would like to stick extra temperature into the store to burn off first thing in the morning.

    I have had a good look on the interweb and cannot find any such valve. Any suggestions?

    Have a look at a company called ACASO (Swedish i think - also try Termoventiler) they do loading valves for solid fuelled boilers to control the temperature into accumulator stores. They have mechanical valve similatrto a car thermostat which only open at set temperatures. I'm sure there are others as there are plently of these installatuions in Europe.
