With the rapid development of social and economic level, faucets are also being updated, and the faucets on the market are also dazzling. Do you know what types of faucets are there? Let's find out with me.
By Material：Faucets can be divided into SUS304 Stainless Steel Faucets, Cast Iron Faucets, All-plastic Faucets, Brass Faucets, Zinc Alloy Faucets, Polymer Composite Faucets and other categories.
- The plastic faucet has the characteristics of corrosion resistance, non-toxic, odorless, light weight and high pressure resistance. It is a new type of green environmental protection product, which meets the national drinking water and civil drinking water standards. This green and environmentally friendly product will be one in the faucet industry. This kind of momentum should be vigorously promoted.
- Stainless steel faucets do not contain lead and are internationally recognized as a healthy material that can be implanted into the human body. Therefore, kitchen and bathroom products made of stainless steel have gradually become popular in European and American countries, but the price of real 304 stainless steel faucets will be higher than that of copper materials.
- Zinc alloy faucets have white oxidized powder on the surface. The strength is much worse than copper, and the lead content is higher. At present, zinc alloy is mainly used to make the handle of the faucet. It is made of zinc alloy die-casting, and then chrome-plated. There are many faucethandles are all zinc alloy.
Faucets can be divided into Basin Faucets, Bathtub Faucets, Shower Faucets, Kitchen Sink Faucets and electric hot water faucets (porcelain energy electric hot water faucets). It is expected to become a new protagonist leading the faucet revolution.
Faucets can be divided into single, double and triple faucets. In addition, there are single handle and double handle points. The single type can be connected to a cold water pipe or a hot water pipe; the double type can be connected to two hot and cold pipes at the same time, which is mostly used in the faucet of the bathroom vanity and the kitchen sink with hot water supply; the triple type can be connected to two hot and cold pipes. In addition to the pipe, it can also be connected to the shower head, which is mainly used for the faucet of the bathtub. The single handle faucet can adjust the temperature of cold and hot water with one handle, while the double handle needs to adjust the cold water pipe and the hot water pipe respectively to adjust the water temperature.
By Opening Method:
It can be divided into screw type, wrench type, lift type and induction type. When the screw-type handle is opened, it needs to be rotated many times; the wrench-type handle generally only needs to be rotated 90 degrees; the lift-type handle only needs to be lifted up to discharge water; the sensor-type faucet will automatically discharge water as long as the hand is placed under the faucet. In addition, there is a time-delayed faucet. After the switch is turned off, the water will continue to flow for a few seconds before it stops, so that the dirty things on your hands can be rinsed off when the faucet is turned off.
By Valve Core:
It can be divided into rubber core (slow opening valve core), ceramic valve core (quick opening valve core) and stainless steel valve core. The most critical factor affecting the quality of the faucet is the valve core. The faucets with rubber cores are mostly cast iron faucets with screw opening, which have been basically eliminated; ceramic valve core faucets have appeared in recent years, with better quality and more common; stainless steel valve cores are more suitable for areas with poor water quality.
