In water supply systems with high levels of O2 and CO2, a corrosive process called dezincification leaves forged brass ball valves at risk to leakage due to a chemical interaction that selectively removes the zinc found in most brass alloys. The T-100NGDZ offers the traditional benefits of forged brass without dezincification compromising the body of the valve over time. Jomar Valve.
