We use different types of metal as "coupons" for testing impacts of contaminants in steam flow paths. Typically we use mild carbon steel, aluminum, and brass. I realize that these are vague terms for the materials. We typically use Brinell hardness as a desciption for hardness.

Does anybody know if there is a chart that shows the different hardness of these metals, particularly around 700 F?
