Closely Monitor Copper Readings
Copper readings can be alarming when increases are in the hundreds of parts per million. However, huge increases are typically insignificant in terms of component wear. Ironically, small increases in copper are a greater concern and should be examined closely. Copper alloy component wear generally is accompanied by lock-step increases in alloy metals such as lead, tin, aluminum and zinc. While the amount of alloy metal present in brass/bronze components is only a small percentage of the total copper content, changes in these alloys should be taken seriously when present with copper increases.
