Lesson: Oxy-Acetylene Brazing

Standard B7.5 - Know basic repair skills using a variety of techniques, such as brazing or hard surfacing

brazing
Is classified by the American Welding Society (AWS) as a liquid – solid phase bonding process.

Liquid- Filler metal is melted (Brass Rod).

Solid- Base metals are not melted (heated only).

Phase- The temperature at which bonding takes place between the solid base metal and liquid filler metal

Bonding- To secure or hold together.

Brazing
brazing1
A form of welding characterized by the use of base metal temperatures above 700 degrees but below the melting point of the base metal.

Brazing Temperature- Occurs around 840+ degrees

Most metals can be joined by brazing but the proper filler rod and flux must be used.

Flux is required to prepare the metals for joining and the filler rod bonds the base metals together.

CAUTION: All brazing processes should be preformed in a well-ventilated area. Toxic fumes may be generated by the brazing process.

Brazing
advantages of brazing
Low Temperature- since the base metal does not have to melt, a low temperature heat source can be used.

May be permanently or temporarily joined- since the base metal is not damaged, parts may be disassembled at a later time by simply reapplying heat.

Advantages of Brazing
advantages of brazing cont
Dissimilar metals can be joined- brazing can join dissimilar metals, such as copper to steel, aluminum to brass, and cast iron to stainless steel.

Metals of various thickness can be joined- very thin metal can be joined to thick metal without burning, warping, and overheating them.

Advantages of Brazing Cont.
fluxes involved in brazing three major functions
To remove any oxides that form as a result of heating the metal.

To promote wetting.

Aid in capillary action.

Wetting is the phenomenon whereby a liquid filler metal or flux spreads and adheres in a thin, continuous layer on a solid base metal.

Capillary action is the force that pulls filler metal (brass) through the joint.

FLUXES INVOLVED IN BRAZING Three major functions
preparing the metals to be brazed
All paint, rust, grease, dirt must be removed from the surface area prior to beginning to braze.

The successful brazing operation depends on close joint tolerances, meaning no major gaps.

Preparing the Metals to be Brazed
brazing sheet metal
The following brazing techniques can be utilized in all brazing applications. This example uses strips of 14 gauge sheet steel in the Flat T position.Brazing Sheet Metal
brazing sheet metal1
Select the proper welding nozzle, brass rod size and flux.

Follow safety and operating procedures for setting up cylinders and regulators.

Acetylene = 5 psi

Oxygen = 5 – 8 psi.

3. Obtain a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame on torch.

4. Preheat metal only to a dull red color. If the base metal is heated to a higher temperature a porous deposit will result.

Brazing Sheet Metal Cont.

Touch fluxed rod to heated portion and allow some flux to melt and react with the base metal.

The melted flux reacts to chemically clean the base metal.

6. Melt off small amounts of fluxed rod and if it flows freely and “tins” (adheres to the heated base metal), the correct temperature has been reached. Maintain this temperature by continually moving the flame over the metal.Brazing Sheet Metal Cont.

7. Continue to dip rod into the molten puddle and add sufficient amount of brass to the base metal to build up the bead.Brazing Sheet Metal Cont.

Continue to tin and build a bead until the desired section has been covered.

With a chipping hammer, remove the flux covering (slag) on the bead.
