Bensham shower cartridge identification

I recently had plumbing job in Bristol that required the replacement of a shower cartridge, but I had problems with identifying a cartridge for a Bensham shower. I thought I would share my findings in case it helps anyone else.

How to identify Bensham shower cartridge

The shower was a Bensham Edwardian exposed thermostatic shower, and the cartridge is manufactured by Valquest, model DC70.

DC70 comes in two versions: SDC70-T32 and SDC70-T20. You can tell which version you have by counting the number of brass teeth, so T32 = 32 teeth and T20 = 20 teeth.
