brass forging for ball valve body
Brass ball valve bodies are created using a forging method that involves shaping metals and alloys while they’re in their solid form. Heat and industrial-size tools deliver compressive forces to bend the metals and alloys, and dies are used to cut and shape the materials to create specific valves. Forging can be performed in most temperatures depending on the brass used. Forging ball valve bodies presents many benefits for industrial companies. For example, companies don’t have to worry about wasted materials. Since forged ball valve bodies are shaped into one solid piece, little effort is needed to rework the material to achieve the proper shape and size. Forged ball valve bodies have a reputation for being strong, which make them ideal for handling high-pressure and high-temperature systems. During the brass forging process, the metal’s grain structure becomes more refined. This leads to an increase in impact and overall strength. Also, forging boosts its resistance to common issues such as cracks, shrinkage, and porosity.

On top of that, brass forging can create ball valve bodies with less wall thickness. This helps to reduce the likelihood of thermal fatigue during valve operation. This also means that forged brass ball valve bodies can be heated and cooled more quickly, which allows them to adequately handle the stresses of systems that continuously cycle through start-up and phase-down processes.

C37700 Brass is an alloy mainly consisting of copper and zinc. This type of brass can be easily forged and are available in various shapes. Brass has high thermal conductivity. UNS C37700 forging brass alloys have good forgeability. C37700 brass forgings are produced from different specifications of brass rods.

CFS Forge are acknowledged as the distinguished manufacturer, exporter and supplier of brass forgings.  In China, the alternative brass grade of C37700 is HPb59-1, this types of brass forgings are widely used in automobile, marine, construction and other allied industries for various purposes. The provided brass is manufactured by our trained professionals with the help of modern machinery using copper and zinc as per the set international standards. The offered C37700 Forging Brass is easy to fabricate and is made available with us in different sizes, thickness and finishes at market leading price.
C11000 Copper, also known as Electrolytic Tough Pitch, is 99.90% pure copper. C11000 is one of the most commonly used commercially pure coppers and is available in a variety of shapes, including plate, sheet, coil, bar, rod, wire and extruded profiles. C11000 copper has high electrical conductivity, in excess of 100% IACS, and good corrosion resistance. C11000 copper has a wide range of uses, including applications inarchitectural, industrial, electrical, automotive and construction industries. Some common products produced out of C11000 ETP copper include roofing, gutters, radiators, switches, fasteners, conductors, cookware and heat exchangers. 

In China, if forging, it is difficult to order C11000 copper bars directly from domestic material factory, so we normally use T2 material instead. Surface finish of C11000/T2 copper forgings available in CFS Forge can be shot blasting, silver plating, nickel plating, ect. Besides, we can also provide value added machining service to deliver finished machined products. Contact us now if you require C11000 copper forgings or forgings in other copper alloys.

Forging is the metal processing process that puts pressure on metal billets, which will occur plastic deformation to achieve a certain mechanical properties and desired shape by the use of forging press machinery. Brass is the most common material in copper forging.

Brass Forging is usually operated under high temperature, we call this hot forging. Brass can have good plasticity both under room temperature and high temperature, but it has better mobility, which will reduce metal deformation resistance. This will not only increase the forgability of brass, but also make brass easy to flow and form.

Although brass has good plasticity at room temperature and high temperature, there is a medium temperature brittleness zone, so the forging temperature range is narrow. Temperature control is of vital importance. Taking HPb59-1 for example, the proper forging temperature should be at 680-750℃。
