Brass foot valve has the following characteristics
1. Manufacturing process is simple. As a general valve casting raw material, brass has low hardness. The operation steps for manufacturing brass valves are simpler than other types of valves such as stainless steel valves and bronze valves.
2. Low price, good mechanical properties, and brass is cheaper compared to other materials such as stainless steel, and because of the good sealing effect, it has been loved by people
3. The use pressure range is wide. The brass valve is the most widely used valve, not only suitable for medium and low pressure but also suitable for high pressure.
4. Excellent wearability
