Mueller Brass Co.’s EcoStream family of products balances the lead-free compliance strategies with the necessity of maintaining the productivity of its customers. In lieu of simply replacing lead with constituents that could re-emerge as contaminants, EcoStream products are selected and developed with the sustainability of the scrap stream.

Whether the form is bar, rod or hot forging, the scrap generated from all EcoStream alloys can be integrated with that of conventional brass alloys. Consequently, the need for costly scrap segregation systems and contamination losses are mitigated, while post-production issues associated with other alternatives such as thread rolling and brazing are avoided.

The end result is a family of products that are compliant, compatible and cost effective, the company says.
