As we all know, the faucet is a frequent water heating hardware in the daily life of thousands of families. Its quality directly affects the convenience of life.
cartridge is the core part of the faucet, equivalent to the "heart" of the faucet.
Now the common cartridge is divided into three kinds: ceramic disc cartridge, steel ball valve core and roll type cartridge.
1. Ceramic cartridge:
This is a popular kind of faucet cartridge, relative to the cartridge of other materials, high quality ceramic cartridge ceramic sheet with dry powder stamping forming, continuous fire through the computer controlled temperature tunnel furnace, and then use double plate double-sided automatic grinding polishing, cleaning, so high strength, wear resistance, such high finish, ultra-fine grinding of high aluminum ceramic sheet as the main seal, long service life. However, ceramic cartridge also has shortcomings, higher requirements for water quality, water with more impurities will affect its service life.
Generally speaking, ceramic cartridge by body shell can be divided into stainless steel ceramic cartridge, copper ceramic cartridge and resin ceramic cartridge.
2, stainless steel ball valve core: stainless steel ball valve core is a new type of cartridge material, its production of raw material quality requirements are relatively high. The use of environmental requirements are not high, generally will not be eroded by impurities, not to worry about the impact of life. So the water quality of the home is not good in the area recommended to use this type of cartridge faucet. In addition, this kind of product disassembly and installation are very convenient, but the price is a little expensive, a lot of 201 as 304 material.
Generally in home decoration, the common ball valve core products for gas ball valve, will also be used at home with water and heating pipe road. The general family used more is through type and tee type.
3, shaft roller cartridge: simple operation, feel comfortable, the whole valve shaft is integrated, easy to install, repair and replace. Its main characteristics are wear resistance, aging resistance. But the shaft roll type cartridge is the old-fashioned type, currently has been slowly unable to meet people's pursuit of the cartridge, so the scope of application is also reduced a lot.
There is also a now rare rubber cartridge called the slow opening cartridge, used in the spiral opening of cast iron faucets, which is now largely obsolete.
