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.
There are copper fittings that will connect to galvanized.
Yes. Use a threaded fitting, male or female as needed on the copper and screw the galvanized into it.You must use a dielectric fitting to connect copper to galvanized pipe. If you don't, a galvanic reaction will occur and the piping will corrode and leak. You can use a Dielectric Union or a Threaded Brass fitting to join the two types of piping together.UNIONS can leak the best answer would have been a dielectric nipple
Not with out an dielectric fitting to prevent electrolytic action from taking place or dezincification of the brass if it is yellow brass ( 60% copper 40% zinc ) Red Brass 85 % copper /15% Zinc will corrode the galvanized piping
usually copper corrodes from a chemical process known as "galvanic reaction". This is caused when copper is touching dissimilar metal such as steel or galvanized. a di-electric union is used to prevent this. further questions Jeff at email@example.com
Addition of copper sulfate will poison your algae. It will also corrode any brass or zinc (galvanized) that it comes in contact with.
Galvanized piping should NEVER be installed under ground UNLESS well insualted
Electrolytic action and if the galvanized is connected to Yellow Brass as opposed to Red Brass you have dezincification
There is no chemical reaction that will happen if galvanized pipes are connected to copper pipes via a brass intermediary. The reason is that brass does not react to either copper or zinc, the mineral used to galvanize metal pipes.
yes. Copper to Galvanized must have a dielectric fitting to avoid a galvanic reaction causing corrosion and eventual leaks.
yes a copper penny can corrode but it takes a long time for it to do so
A threaded copper fitting on the copper side, male or female, and the galvanized is screwed into it.
Heat speeds up chemical reactions. As corrosion is a chemical reaction, copper pipes at a higher temperature will corrode faster
Because you will then get a 'galvanic reaction'.
Steel will corrode as the iron in it is more reactive than copper.
Concentrated sulfuric acid might, but dilute sulfuric acid does not corrode copper.
Yes! The best copper-to-galvanized connection is made using a brass nipple in between the two dissimilar metals. The nipple should be a minimum of 2 1/2" long (preferably six inches long). Bronze is an alloy (copper + tin). Brass is an alloy (copper + zinc).
"Rust" is the result of a reaction between iron and oxygen. Copper has no iron in it, so does not rust. It can corrode, though, and yield a bright whitish-blue material.
No its not.. this is a cheap way of doing it... You'll need to watch the galvanized pipe as it'll begin to rust and eventually leak due to the heat... The best is to use copper...
elements and compound
Copper will slowly corrode in sea water.
If you had been advised why ask again?
