What is «sea brass»
All brass alloys resist corrosion, including in water containing a high content of water-soluble salts. However, there is a group of brass, the operational properties of which are particularly in demand precisely in the marine business. This is the so-called marine brass. They differ in the following properties:
- In the composition of these alloys, antimony and arsenic are necessarily present in small amounts;
- Marine brasses have an elevated content of lead and tin;
- Unlike copper, the anticorrosive properties of marine brasses persist even with noticeable movement of seawater around the parts.
- Brass products also have good anti-corrosion resistance in the humid atmosphere of ports and port facilities, therefore they are used as elements for covering hangars and workshops.
Supplier Evek GmbH offers to buy brass rolled products of domestic and foreign production at an affordable price in a wide range. We will ensure the delivery of products to any point of the continent. The price is optimal.
Brass in marine transport
In many cases, marine propellers are made of high-strength marine brass. At the same time, their quality is used, as higher parameters of cathodic protection of the vessel in a medium of weak electrolyte, such as sea water. Unlike siliceous bronzes, marine brass does not lose zinc when operating propellers, which has a positive effect on the longevity of parts.
For manufacturing, a brass alloy is used which contains up to 2% tin. This alloy is depleted in zinc, and is enriched in lead. The resulting alloy is called Admiralty brass. As a result, the resistance to pitting and marine corrosion increases, which is especially pronounced in the case of high water turbulence that occurs during the operation of propellers. During the docking of vessels, the surfaces of the propellers are deaerated, thereby eliminating surface deposits from salts insoluble in sea water.
