In the past ten years, brazing technology has undergone sweeping changes.
Yet because there are so few practitioners who understand the finer points of the technology, many of the companies that use brazing as their preferred metal-joining procedure are failing to use it to best effect.
Fully updated to reflect the latest practices, this second edition of Industrial Brazing Practice helps you develop the most effective brazing procedure for your particular needs.
It reveals the six simple rules of brazing and explains how they impact essential brazing procedures.
These rules effectively form the bedrock of problem-solving procedures in this field. Written by an expert with more than 50 years of experience, the book combines fundamental principles with practical, hands-on advice.
The author highlights the intrinsic versatility of the brazing process and covers a wide range of conditions and technical possibilities.
He walks you through the nine stages of the process audit, from identifying service conditions, to selecting materials and design, to assessing process complexity.
A chapter answers frequently asked questions such as "is it possible to braze ceramics" and "what is MIG brazing?"New in This EditionInformation on new ISO specifications for brazing filler materialsNew alloy and flux codesNew production developments in available fuel-gases for brazing, such as SafeFlameNew sections on carbon potential of furnace atmosphere and quality control parameters for vacuum brazingNew production methods in aluminum brazingExpanded coverage of interfacial corrosion in stainless steelsMore case studiesThis comprehensive book contains the information needed to enable you to develop best-practice solutions to the daily brazing problems you may encounter in the production shop.
Packed with flowcharts, illustrations, and case studies, it is an invaluable reference for anyone involved in industrial brazing.
