Brass is an alloy made using zinc and copper. Copper and zinc is added in varying quantities to make different grades of brass. The mechanical properties of Brass Forged Fittings are alterable with changing amounts of alloying elements. Its gold-like appearance makes it an ideal choice for decorative applications. The machinability of brass increases with increase in the lead amount.
Door Knobs, Locks, Gears, Ammunition Casings and locks are some low-friction applications that make use of brass. Brass Forged fittings are known for their malleability. Melting point is brass fittings is also low. Brass Fittings come in two sub-types under which all forged fitting product are developed. Socket-Weld and Threaded Fittings are the two types in which all Forged Fitting products are divided. Varieties like Unions, Bushings, Elbows, Couplings and Stub-ends are a few types developed under Forged Fittings Group. ASME B16.11 and ASME B1.20.1 standards maintain the quality control measures of these forged fittings. DZR is a highly corrosion resistant type of the Brass alloy. It is used for applications where high work-ability is required. Applications like Water-Boiler systems make extensive usage of Brass Fittings, owing to their durability. Brass Fittings do not undergo Bio-Fouling.
