C44300 Admiralty Brass

Admiralty brass is composed of zinc, copper and tin. Copper provides the increased heat transfer which zinc provides the corrosion resistance. In applications such as condensers and heat exchangers cooled with fresh, salt, or brackish water, these tubes are very useful. You will find them in oil refineries, power plants, and other industrial applications.

Pump Barrels or Sucker Rod Pumps, used in oil drilling also use admiralty brass due to its corrosion resistance. Even though the pumps typically last between 6 months and 1 year, admiralty brass is a preferred material for improved longevity over carbon steel and below the price of materials such as monel 400.

One of the most commonly used heat exchange alloys, its usage goes back for over 70 years.  Successfully built and maintained C44300 admiralty brass heat exchangers and power plant condensers have been in service for over fifty years.  Ameritube has been manufacturing, distributing, testing, and supplying this alloy for over 12 years.

 Combining copper, zinc and tin, C44300 admiralty brass is a low-cost alloy with good heat transfer and high corrosion resistance.  Ameritube has to be your choice in admiralty brass both for heat transfer and pump barrel applications.  Let us put our deep experience in manufacturing this alloy into your next application.
