Glendale Heights machining company prepared for new lead standards
GLENDALE HEIGHTS – Glendale Heights company KKSP Precision Machining is fully prepared for the new Safe Drinking Water Act standards that will lower the allowable lead content of wetted surfaces in water pipes, fittings and plumbing fixtures starting Jan. 4, 2014, according to a Sept. 13 news release from KKSP.
Because low lead brass is difficult to manufacture, the company has added machines and prepared to expand production, the release said.
Currently brass that is up to eight percent lead is permitted for use in components of drinking water systems, according to the release. In January, that number will drop to .25 percent, the release said.
