The Numbering System

Moen Valve Key Image

An intuitive valve and trim numbering system make ordering M-CORE universal valves an easy process.

Trim:
M-CORE 2-Series SKU numbers are copies of the corresponding Posi-Temp SKU numbers with the addition of a “U” prefix.

Example: Align® Posi-Temp® Valve-Only Trim: T2191 = Align M-CORE 2-Series Valve-Only Trim: UT2191

M-CORE 3-Series trim SKU numbers are copies of the corresponding Moentrol® SKU numbers with the addition of a “U” prefix.

Example: Align® Moentrol Valve-Only Trim: T3291 = Align M-CORE 3-Series Valve-Only Trim: UT3291

Valves:
Each character in an M-CORE valve SKU number reflects the features and benefits of that valve.

Examples: Number of ports, number of functions, number of handles, connection type, and with or without stops

Cartridge:
To tie to the trim functionality and naming convention, the 2-Series Cartridge will be SKU# 1212, and the 3-Series Cartridge will be SKU# 1213.
