I need to add a few elbows, tees, and adapters to both my fuel tanks
and water tanks
, and want to confirm what material(s) are acceptable to use in each case. In both cases, my tanks are aluminum
, adn the existing shutoff valves are Parker (red brass I think) for fuel
, and Groco bronze for water
. There also is an adapter right at the tank which appears to be aluminum
or maybe stainless or some alloy. I don't know if it's there just to convert thread styles, or it it's there to address corrosion
between dissimilar metals. And the new fitting I need to add is stainless.
So to summarize, what fitting material should be used to get from an aluminum tank to a stainless fitting? Since there is no salt water
involved, does it even matter from a corrosion
perspective, and should I just select components that are fuel rated and water rated respectively?
