How does a thermostatic bath faucet work? The thermal element in the valve adjusts the ratio of cold and hot water inlet through the principle of thermal expansion and contraction, so that the outlet water temperature remains at the set temperature value, and is not affected by changes in hot water temperature, increase or decrease in water consumption or changes in water pressure.
Compared with ordinary faucets, what is the difference between the two?
One is the constant temperature effect is different. During the peak period of water consumption, when the water pressure and water temperature change, the thermostatic faucet will automatically adjust the mixing ratio of cold and hot water in a very short period of time, so that the outlet water temperature is stable at the preset temperature. Prevent the temperature from being too high or too low, causing discomfort; maintaining a constant temperature can greatly improve the safety and comfort of the shower.
The second is in terms of safety. Ordinary showers adjust the water temperature by swinging the handle to the left or right, in case the speed is too large, the temperature is too high, or too low. The constant temperature shower is equipped with a safety protection button on the adjustment handwheel, which avoids the possibility of unsafe factors. At the same time, the thermostatic mixing valve has anti-scalding and anti-cold water functions: if the cold water is suddenly interrupted during bathing, the thermostatic mixing valve can automatically turn off the hot water within a few seconds to prevent scalding; The thermostatic mixing valve can automatically shut off the cold water within a few seconds to prevent freezing.
