Brazing stainless steel to copper

Objective

Braze stainless steel tubes to copper tubes. Objective is to evaluate induction brazing solution. Customer is looking to reduce defects and for a cleaner brazing environment.

Due to different pipe size and lower volume – evaluation is performed with a UBraze system.

Test1

Equipment
