In this article we’ll look at what brazing is, the processes involved, where it’s used, and which industries utilize brazing. Brazing is the process of melting and pouring a filler metal into the joint, which has a lower melting point than the adjacent metal. Two or more metal objects are able to be linked together through brazing. Brazing is preferred over other metal-joining strategies because it allows a tighter control over tolerances and results in a clean joint that doesn’t need to be retouched. Overall brazing produces less thermal distortion than welding from uniform heating of material. Multi part units can be brazed cost effectively in comparison
Brazing is the process of joining metals, which can be used on a variety of materials including ceramics, stainless steel, brass, copper, aluminum, and more. Typically you’ll see brazing used for pressure vessels, pipelines, connectors, and valves that need to be leak-tight; pressure vessels that need to be pressure resistance and leak-tight; and parts that need to be corrosion- and heat-resistant. Brazing is commonly used where materials that need to fused are less likely to burn through or warp any parts.
When Should Brazing Be used?
Brazing is typically being used on materials that are less likely to burn through or warp any thin sections. Brazing is used whenever two or more metals need to be joined. Brazing is useful for joining metals that aren’t the same. Usually brazing is used for joining metals that are not the same, at a relatively low temperature. Brazing forms powerful bonds without disrupting the original proper
Products that typically involve or require brazing include HVAC, refrigeration, electronics, aerospace, automotive, construction and more. Brazing is most commonly used with brass, copper, stainless steel, aluminum, zinc-coated steel ceramics and more.
Which Industries Use Brazing?
Industries that use brazing include HVAC (HVAC Coils), refrigeration, electronics, aerospace, automotive, construction and more.
