Metals Alloyed In-House using a SPECTROLAB Metal Analyzer

Erie Bronze utilizes a SPECTROLAB Metal Analyzer to confirm that all alloys we pour are produced to your exact specifications. By smelting our alloys in-house, we avoid costly delays that can arise when sourcing castings that do not meet chemical requirements. Smelting our own alloys also allows us to utilize various different raw materials and remain competitive in today’s market.  

Common Applications for ASTM B148-18 Aluminum Bronze Castings

When contract manufacturing customers require aluminum bronze castings meeting the ASTM B148-18 specification, they need a highly corrosion resistant alloy that lends the ability to withstand harsh environments. This alloy is resistant to tarnishing from sea water, which makes it an ideal solution for various marine applications including valves and general mechanical parts as well as a popular solution for sleeve bearings. If your current job’s drawings call for the ASTM B148 specification, we invite you to contact our team to discuss your needs.
