How Much Do You Know About the Ceramic Valve Cartridge?

Understand ceramic valve cartridge for faucets

We are all familiar with faucets, which are the most common devices in our homes. They are usually installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and balconies, and can be seen wherever there is a water outlet. Faucets mainly provide us with daily life and industrial water, allowing us to maintain a clean and tidy state at all times. The commonly-used materials for faucets on the market are plastic, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, aluminum-magnesium alloy, and space aluminum, etc. However, for faucet valve cartridges, many people may not know much about them. Wanhai, one of the professional ceramic cartridge manufacturers, will take you on a quick journey into the world of ceramic cartridge.

Advantages of ceramic valve cartridge for faucets

  • The ceramic valve cartridge has high-end performance comparable to that of diamonds and has a long service life. The ceramic valve cartridge is made of new ceramic structural material using high-tech technology, which has diamond-like hardness. Ceramic materials have a small deformation amount and higher bonding strength compared to metals. Generally, the crystal ion radius that makes up ceramic materials is small, and the ion electric charge is high, the coordination number is large, and these properties determine that the ceramic materials have very high tensile strength, compressive strength, elastic modulus, and hardness. The ceramic valve cartridge has high quality and comfortable feel. Relevant studies have shown that the ceramic valve cartridge can still operate smoothly after more than 500,000 switching operations and can be durable.

  • The ceramic valve cartridge is aging-resistant, wear-resistant, and does not require maintenance, ensuring the stability of operation and saving maintenance costs and labor intensity, etc. At the same time, the aging-resistant and wear-resistant properties of ceramic valve cartridges also make their service life much longer than that of other valve cartridges.

  • The superior sealing performance of the ceramic valve cartridge ensures that there is no dripping. The high-performance ceramic lubrication and sealing material has high-temperature resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and high mechanical strength and good lubrication performance, which are widely used in aerospace, atomic energy, microelectronics, and other fields.

  • The wear-resistant, anti-corrosion, and stable characteristics of the ceramic valve cartridge greatly extend the service life of the faucet, and the highly sealed ceramic valve cartridge is highly praised by all sectors of society.

Speaking of faucet valve cartridges, in addition to ceramic valve cartridges, there are also axis-rolling valve cartridges and stainless steel valve cartridges. Although it has so many advantages, when choosing, you should pay attention to the after-sales service, which is also your guarantee without worries. At least 5 years of service life is required for general faucets, so you need to check this as well.
