.... In addition, the color near the key changed from yellow to red-brown. The gate was made from leaded red brass (85-5-5-5) while the spindle was made from silicon brass. It was concluded that the valves failed by dezincification resulting from bimetallic galvanic corrosion. It is common in the valve industry...

It was evident that the loss in mechanical strength arising from the corrosion had resulted in the development...

This supported the conclusion that failure of the tubes was the result of the use of an uninhibited brass that has a high zinc content and therefore...

The second valve failed by shear overload of the pressure relief fitting. Overload was facilitated by a reduction of cross-sectional area...

This process of removal of Zn and the retention of Cu began in the high Zn beta phase, but eventually both phases were attacked. The depth...

An energy-dispersive electron microprobe analysis was carried out to evaluate the zinc distribution. Results showed that the failure was due to dezincification. Replacement of the tubes with new tubes fabricated from...
