Forging and Machining for Brass Valve, Pipe or Plumbing Fittings

Brass Valve, Pipe or Plumbing Fittings are just one of the many different types available on the market today. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. It has long been used in valve, pipe or plumbing works in homes and for industrial use. Brass valve, pipe or plumbing fittings have proved to be amongst the most effective available. Careful consideration should go into selecting the valve, pipe or plumbing fittings. A good choice will not only enhance the efficiency of your water delivery system, it also adds to home value. Perhaps you’re wondering about the suitability of brass for plumbing fittings. Below are 5 benefits of brass fittings you may want to consider.

1. Durable
Brass is a highly durable material. This makes it ideal for valve, pipe or plumbing fittings which require a resilient and long serving material. Once installed, brass fittings will retain their good condition for several years. They do not easily crack or disintegrate. When used for hot water distribution brass fittings last longer than other metals. The high resilience and durability of brass fittings also adds to home value.

2. Withstand High Temperatures
Of all metals, brass fittings are best suited for household hot water distribution. Brass fittings enjoy excellent conductivity which promotes the efficiency of water distribution system. They are well known for their remarkable ductility in high temperatures. Brass fittings are capable of withstanding extremely high temperatures. Brass fittings are fire resistant. Often times, they are one of the few items salvaged when a home is razed by fire.

3. Versatile
The high versatility of brass fittings gives brass an edge over other metal fittings. You can get brass fittings in all sizes, shapes and widths. The fittings can also be used to alter the size of pipes. This makes it easier to undertake plumbing installations according to precise specifications. It goes a long way in enhancing the efficiency of the water delivery system into the home. Brass fittings also come in various finishes. This is beneficial where plumbing fittings sometimes have to be exposed in the home. Various decorative finishes allow a pleasant display of plumbing fittings. You can get brass fittings in chrome plated, antique or nickel finish, lacquered or polished brass.

4. Malleability
Brass fittings are more malleable than steel or iron. It is easier to bend, shape or mold brass fittings than those made from most metals. This makes it easier to undertake plumbing works. Installations costs are kept low because of the ease involved. Maintenance work is also easier with brass fittings due to the flexibility of the material. The flexibility of brass doesn’t detract from the durable characteristic of fittings.

5. Corrosive Resistant
Amongst metal fittings, brass enjoys one of the highest resistances to corrosion. Those who live in areas that have water with high corrosive properties can enjoy the non-corrosive quality of brass fittings. Brass fittings do not rust. Since corrosion and rust are two main agents that cause wear and tear of metal fittings, brass fittings are ideal for beating corrosion.

Forging and Machining for Brass Valve, Pipe or Plumbing Fittings

Among all the metalworking processes, forging is the most ideal method to produce Brass Valve, Pipe or Plumbing Fittings. Several advantages are given with forging, for example, by forging, the brass material will be pressed and the grain struction will be improved, which will make the strength of Valve, Pipe or Plumbing Fittings much better. Besides, due to the large demands of Valve, Pipe or Plumbing Fittings, the order quantity is large. The production efficiency of forging is much higher than casting, which will shorten the lead time under the basis of high quality. Next, precision forging can give a close tolerance, which can reduce further machining and save cost. Lastly, the forging cost is also lower than casting in the long term. So, forging is always preferred by our customers.

However, forging is not omnipotent, it has limitation on the shape of Brass Valve, Pipe or Plumbing Fittings. And for some areas with close tolerances or threaded holes, extra machining is required. Machining is a processing process that will remove the excess brass materia of Brass Valve, Pipe or Plumbing Fittings. When there is a high requirement on surface finish (such as Ra3.2 or Ra1.6), or closer tolerance that far from general forging tolerance, or thread holes, we can only meet by machining. CFS Forge has full set of machining equipments in house. With skilled machining capacility, our customers can enjoy shorter lead time and less production cost. Of course, besides forging & machining, we can also supply various surface treatment requirements, such as shot blasting, sand blasting, electroplating, polishing, ect.

CFS Forge is widely recognized as one of the premier copper forging manufacturers in China that supplys the best quality brass valve, pipe or plumbing fittings at very competitive prices. We manufacture a very diversified range of brass fittings made to our customer's proprietary designs. These range in weight and size from a few ounces to 10 pounds each.
