Al-Bronze Valve

Aluminium bronze is a type of bronze in which aluminium is the main alloying metal added to copper . A variety of aluminium bronzes of differing compositions have found industrial use, with most ranging from 5% to 11% aluminium by weight, the remaining mass being copper; other alloying agents such as iron, nickel, manganese, and silicon are also sometimes added to aluminium bronzes.

Aluminium bronze valves are highly suitable for corrosive, saline environments. The common specification is ASTM B148 C95800 although the AB2 specification is also use. These are similar to C95500 and C95400 specifications, and offer good castability, reasonable bearing material, easy machining and high tensile strength.
