German Innovation Award 2018 for “Regudrain Duo” flushing station and “Tri-CTR” three-way diverting and mixing valve

Awarded for innovation: “Regudrain Duo” and “Tri-CTR” win the „German Innovation Award 2018“

Oventrop demonstrates innovative strength with the “Regudrain Duo” in the field of “potable water” and with the “Tri-CTR” in the field of “hydronic balancing”. Both products were honoured as “winner” in the “German Innovation Award 2018”.
The flushing station convinced the expert jury in the category “Building & Elements”. The station is a suitable product solution to fulfil the complex demands on the hygiene of potable water. The hygiene in potable water installations is reliably supported by targeted flushing intervals.
The universal three-way valve received the award in the category “Heating and Bathroom”. With only one valve, the “Tri-CTR” fulfils both functions, diverting and mixing, in heating and cooling systems. Both products are based on a forward-looking and solution-oriented concept. The assessment criteria were, amongst others “user benefit, innovation strategy, longevity, quality, technological progress and sustainability”.


The “German Innovation Award” honouring the innovative capabilities of products was brought to life by the German Design Council. Only products, which were selected by a panel of experts in a challenging nomination procedure were admitted to the competition which took place for the first time in 2018.
