It’s same in industrial production, radiator temperature control valves, thermostatic control valves, cannot be ignored. Let's get to know more about the Brass valves.

Brass valves are produced with the production of fluid pipes; the use of brass valves has been nearly 4,000 years of history. China in ancient times from salt wells in the absorption of brine salt, had used in the bamboo pipe in the plug valve.
