Franke Water Systems launch first ceramic self-closing cartridge

Franke Water Systems launch first ceramic self-closing cartridge

Franke Sissons have launched their innovative ‘Franke Modular Innovation Cartridge (FRAMIC).’

It is the first of its kind in tap disc technology and enables a stagnation-free, hydraulic control of water flow ensuring perfect water hygiene.

The operation of the cartridge is flow pressure-independent meaning drinking water is kept completely separate to the functional elements of the tap.

The F5 FRAMIC cartridge provides maximum cleanliness and hygiene with F5 self-closing taps that have low water consumption running at 4.8 litres per minute at 3 bar.



How does it work?

The patented FRAMIC cartridge is made up of four main components; 1. Hydraulic control, 2. Ceramic valve, 3. Water conduction and, 4. Ceramic mixing unit.

1. The hydraulic control element enables complete shut off of the self-closing valve once the set time has been reached. The flow duration can be easily adjusted for optimum washing convenience. The self-closing actuator is filled with specialised fluid and does not come into contact with drinking water. This ensures that the tap conforms to maximum hygienic standards and that water stagnation is kept to a complete minimum.

2. The ceramic valve unit is designed to control the water flow through the tap. The ceramic material is robust and durable unlike many traditional style taps which aren't manufactured with ceramic and are therefore subject to greater wear and tear.

3. The water distributor forms an interface with the tap housing and connects the hydraulic control unit with the ceramic valve and mixing unit, guaranteeing perfect water intake and delivery.

4. The ceramic mixing component blends hot and cold water through a rotatable disc, allowing temperature control settings to be adjusted accordingly.
