The progress in modern pipeline technology has made it more reliable and versatile than ever before. Ceramic valve faucets are one of the latest products in the industry, providing real benefits for home and office use.
The frustrating rubber gasket found in old faucets is becoming a thing of the past. Ceramic valve faucets are more durable, better equipped to handle extreme temperatures, and can be used for years without maintenance or replacement.
You can recognize ceramic valve faucets at a glance. They use a lever at the top of their large cylindrical faucet body, which you only need to rotate a quarter turn to operate them. Rubber gaskets harden and degrade over time, which is partly why ceramic valve faucets have gained a foothold in the market. These faucets have a pair of slotted discs that stack on top of each other and are placed below the water supply pipe. The lower disc remains fixed, while the upper disc rotates above it to control the flow of water. When the discs are aligned, water is allowed to flow, and moving the discs out of alignment will stop the flow of water.
Traditional faucets use rubber or plastic gaskets to connect the various parts of these fixed devices and prevent water leakage. In contrast, ceramic valve faucets use durable ceramic discs to allow and stop the flow of water. These discs pair up and rotate to allow full flow, partial flow, or to shut down with greater precision, reducing the wear and tear on the entire pipeline system.
Ceramic discs have significant advantages over their rubber and plastic counterparts, including:
Ceramic is more durable than rubber or plastic and has a longer service life. It can also withstand extreme temperatures more effectively than other fixture options.
The structural components of these advanced faucets are designed to protect valves and reduce wear on this crucial component in kitchens or bathrooms.
The innovative design of ceramic valve faucets can be operated with just a gentle turn. This is in stark contrast to traditional faucets, which may require two or more turns to fully open.
The prices of models with ceramic valve faucets are roughly similar to those with rubber or plastic components. Replacement parts for these faucets are much cheaper than those for traditional faucets, making ceramic disc models a truly affordable choice for most homeowners and businesses. Your residential plumbing professional can also install accessories to ensure a safe temperature and limit the flow of faucets. These additional components can significantly improve the practicality and safety of kitchen or bathroom fixtures.
