What materials are the faucets made of?
- Iron faucet
Iron faucets are easy to rust and difficult to replace and disassemble, just like magnets. Generally, they are some small faucets, the surface is more difficult to handle, and the appearance is relatively rough. Large hot and cold faucets use less iron, which is more difficult to process.
- Zinc alloy faucet
The zinc alloy faucet is harmful to the human body. The shell is easily corroded and broken after being impacted by water, and the surface is white after grinding. At present, it is generally made of sand casting process and machine die casting, and the interior is smooth and flat.
- Copper faucet
The inside of copper is relatively rough. You can observe the inside of the faucet. You can see the brass color in an inconspicuous place. There is no problem. At present, copper is the most suitable material for faucets.
- Ceramic faucet
Compared with other materials, the faucet made of ceramic has the advantages of no rust, no oxidation, and no easy wear. The appearance is generous, which brings out the high-end atmosphere of the whole space.
- Stainless steel faucet
Stainless steel faucet is lead-free, acid and alkali resistant, not easy to corrode, and its hardness and toughness are more than twice that of copper faucets, but the hardness, toughness and cutting are more difficult and costly than copper faucets.
In addition to the above material faucets, there are also all-plastic faucets.
What is the principle of the faucet？
The kitchen faucet is mainly composed of a spiral valve core, which mainly depends on the rotation of the valve stem, and is displaced by the thread to achieve the effect of opening and closing the water inlet.
When we rotate the valve stem, the threads are engaged, so that the sealing end of the valve core moves forward and backward. When we twist the valve core in, the water inlet is sealed, and the position of the water outlet is sealed at the same time, and the water outlet is sealed by the sealing end of the valve core. To achieve the alternation of cold and hot water.
The hot and cold water faucet is also called "mixing faucet", which is a faucet that mixes cold water and hot water and can adjust the water temperature. The principle is mainly to use a very high-precision ceramic sheet or a steel valve core inside the faucet to control the water outlet, so that when the faucet is used in different directions, there will be a distinction between cold water and hot water.
It can be seen that the faucet relies on the rotation of the valve stem and is displaced by the thread to achieve the effect of opening and closing the water inlet. faucet material
