... of the tube, extending to a depth of about 0.25 mm (0.010 in.) into the metal, plug-type dezincification extending somewhat deeper into the metal. 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 is readily...

... Abstract Dezincification is a particular form of corrosive attack which may occur in a variety of environments and to which some brasses are susceptible. It is favored by waters having a high oxygen, carbon dioxide, or chloride content, and is accelerated by elevated temperatures and low water...

... used for bronze welding. Failure resulted from dezincification of the joint material from the internal side of the tube. Also, a selective attack on the beta phase had occurred. It was evident that the loss in mechanical strength arising from the corrosion had resulted in the development of cracking...

Where the dezincification had progressed through the tube wall, the chromium plate had...

..., 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 to use...

... of components by the hot stamping process. Microscopic examination indicated failure from dezincification. The fact that the screwed end was not affected indicated that the trouble was not caused by the condensate, which flowed through the elbow, but originated from the water heated in the vessel. The helical...

... of the valves failed by dezincification. The porous copper matrix could not sustain the clamping loads imposed by tightening the pressure relief fitting. The second valve failed by shear overload of the pressure relief fitting. Overload was facilitated by a reduction of cross-sectional area caused...

Results showed that the failure was due to dezincification. Replacement of the tubes with new tubes fabricated from...
