Bronze is an excellent alloy for precision parts casting. Its composition typically includes copper, tin, zinc, phosphorus and in some
When using castings for pumps and valves, it is crucial to ensure that all quality standards and specifications are met to avoid leaks. Pumps and valves are far more sensitive to minor discrepancies than many applications because they involve liquid and gasses under high pressure in many situations. A very small variation from specs that would not be a problem in other applications could cause a disastrous leak. A high level of quality assurance is essential.
