The filler metal has a much lower melting temperature than the parts being joined. A flux is used to help the molten filler metal to flow and “wet” the space between the two parts. The parts are then allowed to cool which joins the work pieces together.
Because of the lower temperatures, this process is used when parts being joined are adversely affected by high temperatures such as those used in arc welding.
|Some of the advantages of Silver Brazing include:|
|Can be used to join dissimilar materials|
|Can be used to join materials of different hardness and strength|
|Ideal for thin wall tubes and smaller components|
|Brazing of hard carbide gripper tips in jaws|
|Joining and sealing of hydraulic fittings|
|Joining of tubes and pipe|
