At present, the commonly used water meter shell materials on the market mainly include: cast iron, copper and engineering plastics. The traditional cast iron water meter has low pressure resistance, poor toughness, corrosion resistance, easy to rust, causing secondary pollution of water quality and affecting the safety of drinking water. The cost of copper watch case is high, the weight is higher than that of plastic products, the production process is complex, the production cycle is long, there are hidden dangers of theft in outdoor use, and the smelting of copper consumes a lot of energy, which is inconsistent with the policy of energy conservation and emission reduction. As the shell of intelligent water meter made of engineering plastic particles, one-time processing, sanitary and environmental protection, not easy to scale, light weight and easy to install, has become the focus of development direction now and in the future.
Intelligent water meter has become the market trend. If a water meter has no intelligent function, it will be behind the times. Intelligent water meter has added many new functions. From the perspective of shell, what material is the shell of water meter?
Special for intelligent water meter shell -- glass fiber reinforced nylon plastic particles (various colors can be customized)
In engineering plastics, the water meter shell made of glass fiber reinforced nylon is the preferred material for intelligent water meter shell in recent years.
This material makes up for the poor performance and unstable quality of ordinary engineering plastics. Compared with other types of reinforced materials, it has high mechanical properties in high and low temperature and high frequency alternating environment, high resilience, anti-aging, hydrolysis resistance, impact resistance, creep resistance, high stability, high temperature resistance, and even frost resistance, which can be used normally in different environments. It has long service life and can avoid blockage and macula after scaling.
At the same time, the material has excellent appearance and color coating, without floating fiber and other appearance defects. This material does not contain environmental chemical harmful components, environmental protection, water meter market at home and abroad is welcomed by customers.
Injection molded intelligent water meter shell
Glass fiber reinforced nylon water meter is a landmark product in plastic water meter, which represents the development trend of water meter industry. Strict environmental protection policy is not only a challenge for the existing water meter shell casting enterprises, but also a development opportunity for us to face the future.
