Soldering/brazing is a joining process that involves using a filler material with a lower melting temperature than the components being joined. The molten filler material wets the surfaces of the heated components and is drawn into the narrow gap between them. The filler material always has a different chemical composition to that of the components being joined.
A joining process is referred to as soldering if the filler material melts at 450°C or less. By contrast, the term brazing is used for melting temperatures above 450°C.
Soldering/brazing allows operators to join similar and or different materials which would be difficult to bond with MIG welding. In addition, thin and heat-sensitive components can be joined.
An oxyfuel flame is used to heat components. Using acetylene as the fuel gas greatly enhances the productivity of brazing/soldering, particularly when applied with best-in-class equipment. We offer a range of LINDOFLAMM® burners to optimise your soldering/brazing operations. They are designed to easily adapt to the heating power you require for the job. We support these burners with a range of complementary services, including advice and help on how to design and set up your gas supply system.
