Can you connect brass directly to copper?
As long as it is a sweat fitting. The term for soldering copper is to sweat it. Don't ask me why.

Is it okay to connect copper pipe to brass to galvanized to brass and back to copper or will it cause a reaction that will corrode the pipes?
Answer . If you do connect copper pipe to galvanized pipe, you will need a dielectric coupling or else the galvanized pipe will corrode. Same with connecting galvanized pipe to brass fittings. Brass is an alloy that contains copper and therefore the same electrolytic properties will exist unless …a dielectric coupling is used. Hope that helps you out. (MORE)
Answer . Zinc is combined with copper to form the brass alloy. The ratio varies, and sometimes other materials are added to create an alloy with different (or application-specific) properties.. A link is provided to the Wikipedia article on brass.
Copper is an element, and a metal. Brass is an alloy of the metallic elements copper and zinc. A link is provided below.
Answer . none whatsoever, the metals are related. just do not use black metal pipe
Answer: . Copper is an element. Brass is an alloy (meaning it is two or more metal elements chemically combined) of copper and zinc.
When connecting brass or copper pipes for diesel fuel system should a pipe tape be used and if so which type?
What are pipe lines to be used to transfer diesel in Engine test bed applications
Brass is a metal made of copper and zinc. One advantage of brassover copper is because brass is it enables for smooth fine detail.Copper is also more expensive than brass.
You don't glue it, you sweat them. That is the term used for soldering them together.
The brass has much lighter color (yellowish to light reddish), then the copper (reddish brown). The brass is copper mixed with zinc. The more copper in the mix, the darker the color.
\nNo, copper has better electrical conductivity than brass. The Zinc content in brass helps to improve corrosion resistance but lowers the electrical conductivity.
There is no chemical reaction that will happen if galvanized pipesare connected to copper pipes via a brass intermediary. The reasonis that brass does not react to either copper or zinc, the mineralused to galvanize metal pipes.
Absolutely, positively, YES as both are non ferrous metals and there is no possibility of galvanic corrosion or electrolytic action taking place.. Presuming your taking about RED BRASS as opposed to Yellow
In order to connect a chromed steel pipe to a copper pipe, you will need a brass fitting. These two pipes will not fit into each other otherwise.
Copper / Zinc and depending on the mixture if it is RED Brass or Yellow
density of copper = 8930 kg/m^3 & density of brass = 8700 kg/m^3. copper is heavier
Brass is golden / yellow in colour, copper is red / orange. Brass will tarnish more rapidly with dilute acid, as the Zinc in the alloy reacts. Copper is a little more "gummy" if touched with a file, where as Brass gives clean hard shavings.
Depends on what the usage is do you want YELLOW Brass 60% Copper 40% Zinc Or do you want RED BRASS? 85% Copper 15% Zinc
Although US one-cent coins (pennies) were once mostly copper, today they are 97.5% zinc with a copper plating. Copper nails are rare due to the metal's malleable nature, but zinc nails can be plated with copper as are pennies. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, and is widely used.
Gold, definitely. How about fixing this question as to what type of "brass" There is Yellow brass 60% Copper 40% Zinc and the more common red brass 85% copper and 15% Zinc then there is Muntz metal and Bronze thus BRASS = COPPER as there is NO gold content in "Brass"
It is NOT Better as RED Brass is 85% copper 15% Zinc and Yellow brass is 60% copper and 40% Zinc and over time the yellow brass becomes brittle because of dezincification. A piping system is only as strong as its weakest joint and BRASS is normally threaded thus the wall thickness is severly reduce…d, copper tubing Type K, L soldered or brazed are much stronger then threaded brass and Brazed brass piping is stronger but normally cost prohibitive to the average building owner. For more information type Tieger plumbing on any search engine (MORE)
Any piping is only as strong as the joints....... Brass there are two main types used in plumbing. 1- Yellow Brass 60 % copper 40% zinc. 2- Red Brass 85% copper 15% Zinc. Copper is softer then brass and the wall thickness is thinner as it is tubing as compared to schedule 40 pipe BUT there use to… be TP copper that was very capable of handling high pressures but the skill level to brase was lacking thus the codes had to dummy down the profession as a lot of folks were morons being passed through the school systems for the "feel good programs" by the Pelosi mentality left coast wackos (MORE)
NO . Yellow brass 60% COPPER 40% Zinc . RED Brass 85% Copper 15 % Zinc . Notice no ferrous metals used
Came across this question trying to find out where lead is in a monitor, I believe that a deflection yoke is made from neither, its an electro magnet, the wiring around it is copper though.
Copper is easily scratched with a pocket knife. Brass is much harder and cannot be scratched easily. Also if the item has a powdery green patina then it is copper, Brass will not oxidize easily (Unless an electric current is applied in a moist enviroment). Brass is also usally lighter in color than …copper. The tones of brass vary, but copper is fairly dark depending on its purity. Destinguishing bronz from copper can be a bit trickier. If you have a torch handy though it's easy when heated copper melts before brass or copper and emits a very distinct (and toxic) odor along with bright green light. (MORE)
The "hot" usually black wire is connected to the brass coloured screw. The white wire is connected to the silver coloured screw and the bare ground wire is connected to the green screw of the receptacle.
Yes: Brass is a homogeneous mixture (metal alloy) of at least . 56% Copper (Cu) and . 5% up to 41.5% Zinc (Zn) and with . smaller amounts of Tin (Sn), Lead (Pb), Ni(ckle), Iron (Fe) or Al(uminum)
because brass is generally tarnish resisant so it does not discolours easily and also because brass is not such expensive as copper The pins are make of brass because it is a harder metal than copper and will wear better through use over its lifetime.
Certainly look up Flagg Flow T.P Fittings T.P thread-less copper fittings will FIT on schedule 40/80 /120 Brass pipe Ideally it should be brazed but soldering will hold domestic water pressures Also many solder fittings ARE CAST BRASS rather then wrought copper
Copper is a much better conductor than brass. Copper is a pure element. Brass is an alloy. Alloys are almost always poor conductors. There is an exception when it comes to superconductors.
You need 2 mechanical fittings with compatible threads. One is PVC to glue to the PVC and one is brass to solder to the brass. Then they screw together.
Yes, either by sweating it or with the right fitting on the copper for the brass to screw on. Yes by soldering , brazing, adapters such as Flagg flow TP fittings , Flaire, screwed , Mechanicl joints
usually it is 67% copper and 33% zinc it can range from 55% to 95%
Copper is more ductile than brass as it is a pure element. The metal ions are exactly the same size, so perfect (or almost perfect) layers are formed in the structure. Those layers are therefore able to slip over each other easily because their edges are smooth. When a metal is drawn out into a wir…e, the layers are pulled over each other, so when the layers can slip over each other more easily the material is more ductile. Brass is less ductile as it is formed of two elements, whose ions are different sizes, so the layers are rough and less regular and cannot slide over each other as easily. (MORE)
copper expands first bcause it is a metal n d metal has the ability to expand..
because metals that are magnetic are ferromagnetic materials. they contain lots of little tiny magnets scattered every which way. aluminum, brass, or copper don't contain the little magnets, so no other magnets cannot stick to it. each of these tiny magnets are atoms. they spin, and then gain thei…r own tiny magnetic field. but to be magnetic, they all have to be spinning in one direction. but in aluminum, brass, or copper, half the atoms are spinning in one direction, and the other half is spinning in the other direction, which makes it non magnetic. theres also a whole thing with quantum mecanics, but that gets confusing and that's not what we are looking for here.

Brass IS an alloy of copper and zinc Copper and zinc are pure metals (elements)
Teflon tape, Hercules Pro dope, pipe joint compound and quick wick , Pipe joint compound without quick quick wick , Blue block ,Teflon paste
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and the same soldering procedure can be used to solder each. As long as the base metal is cleaned of oxide and properly fluxed there should be no problem soldering
Copper is a metal and is not combined with any other metal.brass is a combination of copper and zinc alloys.
Of course BUT if your dealing with Yellow brass instead of red brass it just takes a little more effort
Can you do it - yes. SHOULD you do it - NO. Because brass and galvanized conduit have different electrochemical potentials (go talk to a chemistry teacher if you need an explanation of electrochemical potential) if you place them in direct contact with each other, you will set up a galvanic differen…tial and promote corrosion. If you must connect brass and galvanized conduit, you should use a connector between the two that will isolate them electrically from each other. In essence, you are "insulating" them from each other so that you don't get an electric current between them to promote corrosion. There are special fittings, I believe they are referred to as "dielectric fittings" that are designed to provide this insulation and avoid the problem of galvanic corrosion. The more corrosive the liquid you have in the pipes, the more important it is to use these special fittings. Hard or salty water can particularly problematic. (MORE)
Yes but only the pedals that brass painted plate in the back is cast iron and it is only about 160lbs in the small I'd say double in the upright 320lbs idk about baby grands or grands I just scrapped one hopping it was brass so
Most places, a dielectric union will prevent the dissimilar metals from corroding. Some places, the water is so hard that even a dielectric union won't help. If I wanted to transition from steel to copper or brass, I would use PVC. Modern formulations of PVC are less likely to pose the hazards that …the older formulation caused. There are some plumbers who have not kept current with latest industry standards, insult people and use bold font to try to make their point. They will be alarmists against using PVC because their information is based on older, outdated information. Please consult the attached link or search on the topic, yourself. . Today, plastic plumbing products designed for potable water applications are usually designated with either "NSF-PW" or "NSF-61" to indicate that the product complies with the health effects requirements of NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for materials designed for contact with potable water.. There are dielectric nipples rather then a union as unions can leak over time. Brass (Red ) is 85 % copper and 15% Zinc Yellow Brass is 60% copper 40% Zinc either one can be connected to copper BUT the coefficient of expansion per degree factor that has to be considered on hot water piping Galvanized can be safely connected to a brass valve with no problems such as Gas lines (Natural ) run out doors where rusting is encountered. PVC is carcinogenic , not recommended for hot water or high pressure, needs more supports and cannot come into contact with direct sun light thus You should seriously consider the source before you take any information of a site or the very least find out the actual qualifications of the person giving advice as your life may depend on it y (MORE)
Copper has a red color and brass has a yellowish color. By the Zinc content
Take either an SOS pad or a wire brush and rough up both the inside of the brass fitting and outside of copper pipe, put the copper pipe into the fitting and solder around it.
i need to answer this --> Properties of alloy that are different to and more useful than the main metal... i think this means what do they do?
Brass because it looks better, but be warned they will patinate.Even then it will have a nice vintage look.
It's ok as long as none touch each other. Use a coupling with plastic or rubber centre.
Brass as it is made from 2 diffrent elements, including copper. thefirst metal tools were made out of copper, then bronze, bronze isstronger then iron, but since iron is much more abundant, the brozeage gave way to the iron age, some where between the iron andbronze age, using brass for ornamentry o…bjects became popular. (Allthis happened hundreds, if not thoulsands of years ago. (MORE)
Yes, brass is an alloy made of copper and zinc ; theproportions of copper and zinc can be varied in the alloy to createa range of brasses with different properties (e.g. hardness,corrosion resistance) that are needed for different applications.
