The Principles of Brazing for Pipe Installation

Brazing is a thermal, material binding, joining process for metallic materials. Brazing permanently joins two or more workpieces together with brazing alloy and flux using heat. This white paper explains the principles of brazing for pipe installation and presents the characteristics of brazing alloys such as melting point, melting range, and working temperature. Comparison brazing with soldering, the document provides a list of materials that can be brazed. Paper describes the capillary effect, soft solder paste, requirements for professional brazing, and various brazing devices and presents a step by step explanation of procedure for soldering and brazing. It also evaluates the amount of strain a solid brazed joint can handle, provides a list of appropriate brazing techniques for individual installation areas, and concludes by listing benefits of brazing.
