Brazing test of copper pipes with Ultraflex induction systems

BoxIT EAD is an information technology company manufacturing its own cooling systems and a part of the process requires brazing of copper pipes. They are searching for a high-quality and controllable brazing technology to incorporate into their manufacturing process.

They tested brazing with a flame torch, a Brown’s gas torch, and induction brazing with the Ultraflex UltraHeat SM (5kW). They determined that induction brazing significantly outperformed the other methods. The Ultraflex equipment provided a perfect braze, producing clean and professional joints.

Brazing test of copper pipes with Ultraflex induction systems

The induction brazing tests successfully brought the BoxIT copper pipe samples to 750C in under a minute with a variety of brazing alloys, using a power of 5.0kW with a custom heating profile.

The results of the BoxIT heating technologies tests for their copper pipe brazing application.

Ultraflex Induction Brazing

• Great, “perfect” quality samples. Clean and professional joints

• Hardness of pipes unaffected

• Highly controllable braze

• Can program up to 9-step heating profile to ensure consistent results

Flame Torch Brazing

• Emits fumes while heating

• Oxidizes the pipes

• Unclean, discolored copper

• Slow process

• Inconsistent brazing that depends on the operator

Brown’s Gas Torch Brazing

• Very expensive technology

• The flame and heating are concentrated in only one location

• Process is difficult to control and may melt pipes

• Inconsistent brazing that depends on the operator
