Aluminium Bronze High Pressure Impeller Casting - AB2

Aluminium Bronze Castings – The Perfect Solution

Aluminum Bronze Castings AB2/C95800 – ASTM B148

Aluminium Bronze is an alloy that has numerous uses. It has become an increasing utilised material due to its corrosion resistance and high physical strength. It finds many different applications in numerous industries such as fluid handling (Valves, Pumps, Filtration etc), shipping (propellers etc) and other varied applications. It’s use in the oil and gas section has become extremely prevalent not least due to its non-sparking properties.

Aluminium bronze is also recognised for its corrosion resistance which makes it especially suitable for certain environments such as in the chemical industry. The aluminium component of the alloy reacts with oxygen in the environment to form a layer of aluminium oxide which resists attack and forms a skin which prevents the metal being attacked. This propensity makes aluminium bronze particularly difficult to cast as this reaction has to be be prevented as the hot metal is introduced to the mould.

Typical pouring temperatures for AB2/C95800 are between 1180 and 1240 depending on wall thickness and intricacy of the part. Draycast uses both green sand moulding and resin moulding systems to produce aluminium bronze castings in our foundry in Chesham UK.

Here at Draycast we have extensive experience of supplying many tonnes of aluminium bronze casting per month and this demand is increasing year on year as we have demonstrated our technical abilities to existing and potential customers. This backed up by our approvals from both Lloyds Register and Bureau Veritas for the manufacture of bronze casting.

Draycast New Website

Draycast has today started moving to a new web provider. In the coming months the main website at www.draycast.co.uk will transition to this new site and eventually all traffic will point here.

The site is very much work in progress at the moment so new content will appear as we work on the site.

We welcome comments good and bad and suggestions of what would be useful to add to the site. We will add content to the site over time so that it becomes a resource for people interested in castings so that we can pass on some of the skills and technology to others who wish to learn about aluminium castings or bronze castings. Here at Draycast we feel it is beneficial to all to pass on information which will allow our customers and the general public to be better informed of the processes needed for sand castings. Our UK sand foundry is equipped with state of the art equipment allowing us to produce efficiently and produce a quality of product that is second to none.
