Can you mix copper and brass fittings?
Subsequently, one may also ask, is Brass compatible with copper?
Since brass doesn't react with either the copper or the zinc, one method is to make sure you have a threaded female end on both the copper and the steel pipes, and then connect the two by simply inserting a short threaded brass nipple between them.
Similarly, can you mix nickel and copper water cooling? Mixing copper and nickel in a liquid cooling loop with aluminum parts will induce galvanic corrosion and the more active aluminum will get damaged. This can also lead to the damage to the nickel plating since it is a thin coating. Corrosion happens regardless in all systems whether they have mixed metals or not.
Beside above, can you mix brass and steel fittings?
Connecting stainless steel plumbing pipes to brass fittings and pipes is risky. Unless you know the specific types of stainless steel and brass, it should be avoided. This is because only certain types of stainless steel and brass can be used together. For reference, metals should have no more than a .
What is brass and copper?
