A new AFS research project will investigate porosity in no-lead brass castings that contributes to high scrap rates. The AFS Research Board approved the project from the Copper Alloys Division, titled “Turbulent Gating Effect on C89833 Alloy,” in September.
The research will help determine the effect of different non-turbulent gating systems on pressure tightness and mechanical properties of C89833 material.
Three AFS Corporate Member foundries will help with pouring and testing procedures. The project is expected to be completed by January 2020.
