Spindle Parts

A spindle functions as the link between the handle of a faucet or valve and the internal mechanisms controlling water flow. When the handle is turned, the spindle rotates, enabling the opening or closing of the valve or faucet. Spindles vary in size and configuration based on their intended use. Designed meticulously, parts of a spindle ensure smooth operation of valves and faucets through their intricate collaboration. The spindle assembly comprises essential elements, such as the spindle body at its core, which rotates upon turning the handle. Typically crafted from durable materials like brass or stainless steel, the spindle body is corrosion-resistant. Other integral spindle parts encompass the packing nut, creating a secure seal around the spindle body to prevent leaks, and the handle adapter, linking the handle to the spindle body. Beyond these primary components, a spindle assembly may incorporate additional parts like washers, o-rings, and springs. These components work in harmony to establish a water-tight seal, guaranteeing the seamless functioning of the valve or faucet.
