Matki SB1401 Thermostatic Cartridge General Information

The Matki SB1401 is a TMV compliant WRAS accredited thermostatic cartridge for the Makti Elixir EX5 and Absolute 2115. When hot or cold water supply fails, this cartridge – being thermally protected – will shut down in 1.5 seconds. When water pressure swings, this SB1401 shower cartridge can control the temperature at about 1°.

It is manufactured using high-grade engineered polymer. This patented shower cartridge is resistant to hard water build-up.

The Matki SB1401 thermostatic cartridge is for shower valves that have separate controls for flow and temperature. It is the apt replacement cartridge for dual and triple control shower valves.

This cartridge can take hot water temperature ranging from 55℃ (131℉) to 65℃ (149℉). The cold water supply temperature is around 25℃ (77℉). It is suitable for low pressure and high pressure systems with 0.1 bar dynamic as the minimum working pressure and 10 bar static as the maximum working pressure.

This Matki thermostatic cartridge for shower Elixir EX5 is reversible, meaning in case the hot and cold supplies are installed wrong, the hot and cold in the cartridge can be interchanged.

Frequently Asked Questions: Matki SB1401 Thermostatic Shower Cartridge

Do you have questions about the Matki SB1401 or finding the spare part needed for shower repair? Please drop us a message through our Find a Part service. We will be more than happy to offer you assistance. (Please note: Weekend messages will be responded to first on Monday.)

Question: Can you help me identify shower problems and which corresponding cartridge needs a replacement?
Answer: Shower problems can occur due to several issues. And solutions can range from adjusting water pressure to replacing the cartridge. Here are some likely shower issues and how to tell if cartridge replacement is a must:

– A less than adequate water flow rate, or leaks, can be an indication of a need for a new flow cartridge or Matki SB1401 thermostatic cartridge.
– The inability to set shower water temperature while showing could mean the thermostatic cartridge has gone bust. And you need a replacement Matki thermostatic cartridge.
– The diverter cartridge might be the suspect when water is dripping from the bath tap while using the showerhead.

Question: Spline count?
Answer: This shower spare has a spline count of 20. Count the splines of your old cartridge by marking the starting point with a marker. There is a 32 teeth variation.
