VIGA outlines the working principle of hot and cold water faucet for you.

The application of faucets can be described as a creation. Because of its invention and application, more people have experienced the fun and convenience of life. So what is the internal structure of the hot and cold faucet? When the hot and cold water faucet is working, which parts of it are working?

Working principle of cold and hot water faucet

The main hot and cold water faucet shall be composed of a handle, a valve core, a braided water inlet pipe and installation accessories. The working principle of ceramic valve core: under normal circumstances, the bottom of the ceramic valve core is composed of three holes, two of which are used to enter and exit cold water, the other is used to enter and exit hot water, and the remaining one is used to exit water inside the valve core. The faucet spool has sealing rings for both the cold and hot holes to ensure that it is sealed with the main body. After the cold and hot water inlet pipes are connected, ensure that the hot water pipe and cold water pipe correspond to the two holes of the spool. The spool mainly controls the opening and closing state of the two holes, and works by moving the two ceramic pieces.

The handle switch drives the valve stem to move, so that the ceramic piece moves, the left and right holes are sealed, and no water enters the valve core at this time. The spool’s point seal ring must allow the water flow to pass through the spool before entering the main body outlet channel, so that no water enters the spool, then no water flows out of the pipe. This is the closed state of the water pipe, the structure and working principle of the faucet.

The principle of hot and cold water faucet

What is the principle of hot and cold water faucet? In fact, the hot and cold water faucet is also called “mixed water faucet”, that is, a faucet that mixes cold water and hot water together and can adjust the water temperature. The principle is mainly to use a very high-precision ceramic sheet or a steel spool to control the water discharge inside the faucet. In this way, when the faucet is used, cold water and hot water appear in different directions.

When we twist the faucet to be in the state of water discharge, the ceramic piece is driven to move so that the upper hole is completely opened and the right hole is completely closed. In this way, cold water cannot enter the spool, hot water enters the spool, a small space in the six-way spool, as shown by the irregular recesses in the ceramic plate. After doing the following holes into the main body, this is the working principle of hot water in and out. Open the handle to the right is cold water, the middle hot and cold water pipe channels are opened at the same time, and the outflow is warm water.
