Brass Compression Fittings
Brass Compression Fittings are better suited to some applications than the standard stainless steel fitting. For example, brass and stainless steel both resist corrosion, but they react differently to various corrosive agents. Brass compression fittings also offer much better thermal conductivity and will retain positional accuracy when cooling unlike stainless steel wich can “lock” a compression fitting into place. Brass fittings are excellent for hot and cold water industrial and residential systems and are suitable for use in some marine environments as it develops a protective green patina. Brass can resist corrosion in nonoxidizing acids but oxidising acids should be avoided and it also provided excellent corrosion resistance to petroleum products.
