Title: Why brass preferred for industrial equipment?

Why Brass is preferred material for industrial
equipment

INFORMATION
  • Brass is a substitution alloy of copper and zinc
    that are mixed in desired proportions to get
    required mechanical and electrical properties. It
    can be used in places of low friction like locks,
    gears, doorknobs, and valves.
  • It is highly used in making various musical
    instruments as well. Brass turned parts have both
    applications in household materials as well as
    for industrial purposes.
  • Some of the major advantageous properties are
    mentioned below
  • MALLEABILITY
  • Brass has a relatively lower freezing point,
    around 900-940C due to which it is highly
    malleable than bronze or zinc.
  • It is easy to cast and it can be easily changed
    by changing the proportions of copper and zinc.

  • 2. RECYCLABLE
  • Brass can be easily recycled as it is not
    ferromagnetic and hence can be easily separated
    from ferrous scrap by passing the scrap near a
    powerful magnet.
  • 3. CORROSION RESISTANT
  • The CR or corrosion resistant brass are used in
    places of high corrosion risk where normal brass
    cannot meet the requirements due to high
    corrosion risks.
  • 4. GERMICIDAL ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES
  • Brass prevents befouling due to its germicidal
    properties.
  • It kills microorganisms within minutes or hours
    of contact.
  • 5. SPARK RESISTANT
  • The composition of brass helps in resisting
    sparks.
  • It does not affect the brass part and is hence
    used in parts where there is a high risk of being
    affected by sparks.

  • Brass has been quite popular since a long period
    of time and is used in making various products
    for households as well as for various industries.
  • Brass has a wide range of versatility and has its
    applications almost everywhere. Some of which
    include
  • AMMUNITION CASTING
  • Brass is known for its spark resistant, low
    friction, and corrosion resistant and none
    magnetic properties.
  • It can be easily rolled and turned to cartridge
    shells.
  • Its recycling properties help in ammo reloading.
  • 2. MARINE HARDWARE
  • Brass is hard and corrosion resistant even in
    presence of salt water.
  • It has been used for centuries as breathing on
    hulls of wooden naval ships, for navigational
    tools and for making engines and pumps.

  • 3. RADIATOR CORE,TUBES AND TANKS
  • Brass radiators for cars and trucks are cheaper
    than aluminum radiators.
  • They are easy to manufacture, has long lasting
    properties and are recyclable which turns out to
    be much more efficient.
  • Brass turned parts have a lower airside pressure
    drop than aluminum.
  • 4. ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS
  • Brass has properties of being malleable,
    non-magnetic, and its cost is less than gold and
    silver.
  • This makes it an excellent choice for making
    panel board switches, PCB plug pins, sockets, and
    terminal box.
  • 5. MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS
  • The durability, workability, and acoustic
    properties of brass makes it an excellent and an
    economic choice for making a wide range of
    musical instruments like trumpets, tubas,
    trombones, cymbals, gongs, etc.

  • 6. RV WATER PRESSURE ELBOW FITTING
  • It is much stronger and tougher than plastic.
  • Brass turned parts can stand up to high water
    pressure and reduce it to a manageable level for
    using in RVs.
  • 7. TECHNICAL INSTRUMENTS
  • Brass being nonmagnetic has a high application in
    making measuring instruments like compasses,
    astrolabes, barometers, chronometers, clocks, and
    watches.

  • Brass turned parts are used since prehistoric
    ages but its composition of being a copper-zinc
    alloy came to be known during the post-medieval
    period.
  • It is used for decoration due to its gold-like
    appearance.
  • It is used in applications to prevent any effect
    by sparks like in fittings and tools used in
    flammable or explosive materials.
  • This useful alloy of copper and zinc comes up
    with a huge range of beneficial properties and
    applications.
