Brass fittings have been in use since ancient times. Their versatility, durability, and good plating properties make them an extremely useful and popular choice in a wide range of applications. Brass is a non-magnetic metal and because of this, it can be used in a huge variety of industries. Here we will take a look at some of the industries where brass is used in today's production environment.
One industry where brass is really seeing the time and effort being made for it is in the plumbing. Plumbing in the home and within the bathroom is normally done with plastic pipe fittings. Plastic pipe is susceptible to corrosion and its internal surface has been known to deteriorate over time. However, by using brass faucets and other brass fittings, you can greatly reduce the amount of corrosion that occurs.
Brass tubing is also widely used in the automotive and motorcycle industry. This is mainly because it is an inexpensive option. Zinc-copper alloy is known for being highly resistant to corrosion and it is also very pliable. Therefore, brass fittings can be very useful in the automotive and motorcycle industry in terms of corrosion prevention. Zinc-copper alloy tubing is also very tough and durable, which means that it will last much longer than plastic tube fittings.
Another industry where brass is really seeing a lot of attention is the hot water distribution industry. There are a number of reasons why high temperatures are needed in hot water treatment plants. Firstly, the hot water has to travel very long distances to get to the end user and this is where the high temperatures come into play. Secondly, the high temperatures also help to kill bacteria and germs that can cause major problems in hospitals and other public institutions that have a large number of patients.
Brass is a very effective metal fitting that is able to provide both corrosion resistance and corrosion resistance with a high tolerance of heat. This allows it to be used on a variety of different applications that require extremely high temperatures including in the aerospace and automotive industry. In addition, zinc-coated materials are able to provide a very good corrosion resistance feature and are capable of resisting acids, alkalis, and most corrosive chemicals as well. Additionally, they have high electrical and thermal conductivity and will therefore be able to keep the heat that is generated in the hot water plant or industrial oven under control.
Finally, brass glass fittings can be used for a variety of applications including natural gas pipelines. Piping in this case will generally have a lower temperature and corrosive resistant pipe will be needed. The higher the temperature of the natural gas pipeline, the more corrosive elements that will be present in the pipe and will need to be properly protected. Brass has excellent thermal conductivity that will help protect against corrosive reactions as well as helping to maintain the proper temperature range within the piping system itself.
