Galvin Engineering recently collaborated with John Ford, Maintenance Officer at Biosciences Precinct at the University of QLD, to produce custom made lever action  tapware solutions that would last more than 12 months and minimise the amount of times ceramic cartridges would have to be replaced.

Galvin Engineering presented the following options:

  • Beef up the ceramic cartridges
  • Insert stainless steel pins in handles to stop over rotation
  • Replace with jumper valve cartridges 
  • Shorten levers to reduce the pressure when opening and closing

After investigating the solutions, the University of QLD decided to replace the existing tapware with Galvin Engineering's lever action basin sets with jumper valves.

More information on lever action tapware is available from Galvin Engineering.
