Brass Ball Profile
These balls are used in electrical devices, petrochemical industry operations, and consumer products such as appliances. Small-diameter balls are often used in valves. Electrical conductivity makes brass balls a good option for electronics applications. Also, they have low friction properties.
These precision balls exhibit very good resistance to water, gas and oil, and chemicals including benzene, butane, methyl acetone, and ethyl chloride. Typical applications include gasoline rollover valves, fire equipment hose couplings, and electrical contacts.
Rockwell B75-87 measured on parallel flats.
Balls are manufactured in 1/16″ to 1″ in grades 100 through 1000
