The main components of the garment steamer are the inner core, the fuselage shell, the steam contact, the steam conduit, the bracket, and the accessories.

Inner core:

The heater is the "heart" of the hanging machine. According to the different materials of the heater, there are mainly aluminum alloy heaters, pure copper heaters, copper-plastic heaters, and zinc alloy heaters. Advantages of aluminum alloy heater: no crack in one molding, low thermal efficiency loss, good energy storage effect, fast heat conduction, uniform steam and long service life, which can reach more than 8 years. Moreover, the surface is not easy to accumulate scale, which can effectively prevent scale formation and low carbon environmental protection.

The advantages of pure copper heater: long service life, can reach more than 8 years, fast heat conduction, uniform steam. The disadvantage is that the processing process is complicated, the cost is high, and the price is high. The surface is not easy to clean scale. The advantages of copper-plastic heaters and zinc alloy heaters are low cost and low price. The disadvantages are short service life, slow heat conduction and uneven steam.

Body shell:

The outer casing mainly has an engineering plastic outer casing and polyphenylene. The engineering plastic shell has the advantages of good gloss, easy processing, corrosion resistance, high strength, light weight, no discoloration, and less deformation.

Polyphenylene shell has the advantages of light weight, good toughness, corrosion resistance and high temperature resistance.

Steam nozzle:

Hanging machine nozzles generally use engineering plastic structure with stainless steel panels, Teflon panels, ceramic panels, plastic panels and so on. The advantage of the stainless steel panel is that the panel is not easily deformed, durable and can achieve the best ironing effect. The bottom plate is smooth and wearable, and the ironing is smooth. The metal is bright, strong in texture and high in cost. Teflon panels and ceramic panels have the advantages of high temperature resistance, smoothness and non-stickiness. It is scratch-resistant, durable and effective in blocking steam and acid-base corrosion; easy to clean. Disadvantages: The process is relatively complicated and the cost is high. Plastic panels are the most practical and inexpensive.

Steam conduit:

Steam pipes mainly include fiber braided hoses and corrugated hoses. The fiber braided hose has the advantages of anti-scalding, high temperature resistance and uniform steam. Generally, the steaming machine with small steam pressure is made of fiber braided hose. Corrugated hose has the advantages of high temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, etc. Generally, the steaming machine with high steam pressure uses corrugated hose.

support:

The bracket is divided into a bimetallic rod, a single metal rod, and a non-retractable bracket. The double metal rod has the advantages of convenient storage, strong stereoscopic effect, good stability, no need for hangers, and the disadvantage is high cost. The single metal rod has the advantages of convenient storage and small volume. The disadvantage is poor stability and the need for additional hangers. The non-retractable bracket has the advantage of being cheap, but the assembly is troublesome, and the adjustment is difficult.

annex:

The main accessories of the hanging machine are trousers clips, ironing brushes, dusting brushes, etc. The options for the hanging machine are mainly storage accessory bag, anti-scalding gloves, watering cup, descaling agent, water softening device to prevent scale formation.
