How much do you know about bimetallic barrels?

Sep 04,2018

The bimetallic barrels are produced following the highest quality standards. We offer the most innovative wear resistant packages to optimize processes, performance and quality. Long operating life thanks to the selection of the best alloys for the specific requirements of resistance to wear and abrasion. Increase of productivity and quality of the product through a precision fit between the screw and barrel to achieve a longer period of time.

The bimetallic barrel is made of high purity aluminium with conductivity equal to or greater than 55% IACS, the material of the stem or pin is solid copper, which provides a high degree of conductivity. Inside the barrel contains compound to inhibit corrosion and is sealed by a plug.
