GB 18145 Ceramic Cartridge Faucets
CJ/T 194 Non-contact Water Supply Device
QB 1334 General Technical Specification for Faucets
3 Terms and Definitions
The following terms and definitions are applicable to this Standard.
3.1 Difference among Flow Rates
Difference among flow rates refers to the difference of faucets (with accessories) between the highest average flow and the lowest average flow under different dynamic pressures.
3.2 Minimum Allowable Values of Water Efficiency for Faucets
Minimum allowable values of water efficiency for faucets refers to the maximum flow of faucets under the test conditions stipulated in this Standard, and under the circumstance of complying with the requirements of processing assembly quality, appearance quality and functional performance.
3.3 Water Efficiency Grades for Faucets
Under the test conditions stipulated in this Standard, and under the circumstance of complying with the requirements of processing assembly quality, appearance quality and functional performance, faucets are divided into three grades in accordance with the difference among flow rates and the flow rate value. Grade-1 signifies the highest water efficiency; Grade-3 signifies the minimum allowable values of water efficiency. 3.4 Rated Water Efficiency Grade
Rated water efficiency grade refers to the water efficiency grade for faucets specified by the manufacturer in accordance with the stipulations in this Standard when faucets are exiting factory.
4 Technical Requirements
4.1 Basic Requirements
Under the test conditions stipulated in this Standard, ceramic cartridge faucets shall comply with the performance requirements stipulated in GB 18145. General faucets shall comply with the performance requirements stipulated in QB 1334. Non-contact faucets shall comply with corresponding performance requirements stipulated in CJ/T 194.
4.2 Difference among Flow Rates (???F)
Difference among flow rates shall be not more than 0.1 L/s.
4.3 Water Efficiency Grades for Faucets
Under the dynamic pressure of (0.10 ?? 0.01) MPa, in accordance with the flow of faucets (with accessories) in Table 1, determine faucets?€? water efficiency grade. The water efficiency grade shall be not lower than the rated water efficiency grade. In terms of double-gear faucet, the water efficiency grade of the large gear shall be not lower than Grade-3. The water efficiency grade that the small gear actually reaches shall be considered as the water efficiency grade of double-gear faucet.
Table 1 -- Faucet Water Efficiency Grade Index
4.4 Minimum Allowable Values of Water Efficiency for Faucets
The minimum allowable values of water efficiency for faucets shall be Grade-3 of water efficiency.
4.5 Faucet Water Conservation Evaluation Value
Faucet?€?s water conservation evaluation value shall be Grade-2 of water efficiency. 5 Test Methods
Difference among flow rates (???F) shall be tested respectively for 3 times under the dynamic pressures of (0.10 ?? 0.01) MPa, (0.20 ?? 0.01) MPa and (0.30 ?? 0.01) MPa. Respectively calculate the average value; calculate the difference between the highest average flow and the lowest average flow.
In the 3 times of test, at (0.10 ?? 0.01) MPa, the flow is respectively f11, f12 and f13. The average value is F1 = (f11 + f12 + f13)/3.
In the 3 times of test, at (0.20 ?? 0.01) MPa, the flow is respectively f21, f22 and f23. The average value is F2 = (f21 + f22 + f23)/3.
In the 3 times of test, at (0.30 ?? 0.01) MPa, the flow is respectively f31, f32 and f33. The average value is F3 = (f31 + f32 + f33)/3.
The maximum average value is F3 (the actual maximum value); the minimum average value is F1 (the actual minimum value).
Difference among flow rates ???F = F3 (the actual maximum value) ?€? F1 (the actual minimum value).
The difference among flow rates of faucets and flow test device shall satisfy the stipulations in Figure 1.
Faucets shall be connected to the test device in accordance with Figure 1. Switch on the handle to the maximum position; import the stipulated pressure value to the water inlet.
In the flow test of single-handle double-controlled faucet, on the cold-water end, switch on the handle to the maximum position. Then, through the cold-water end, rotate the Grade-1 Grade-2 Grade-3 Water Efficiency Grade
Flow /(L/s)
handle to the maximum position on the hot-water end; take the maximum value of the flow.
In the flow test of double-handle double-controlled faucet, respectively switch on the handle to the maximum position on the cold-water end and the hot-water end; take the maximum value of the two flows.
In the flow test of single-handle single-controlled faucet, switch on the handle to the maximum position; take the flow value.
