Hello.

I'm intending on replacing my 20 year old Hansgrohe Shower Mixer.

As seen in the photos, the inlet nuts are concealed beneath the cups that screw onto the pipes. Most modern mixers have the nuts visible and in between the mixer bar and the cups.

Will I be able to replace the mixer with a modern type?

Any thoughts welcome.

What’s behind the silicone? If it’s copper then you should be able to get a replacement. As @Harvest Fields said maybe send photo to hansgrohe or any other manufacturer that you intend on replacing with.

Make sure the centres of the feed pipes are 150mm if you're not going with a like for like replacement, they look to be less to me.
150mm is the most common width needed for exposed showers.

Some do come with an option to suit different centres. ;)
