Copper-Phosphorous Alloys for Copper Brazing
Copper-phosphorous brazing alloys are used extensively for joining copper. These alloys are useful in HVAC/R applications involving copper tubing and in industries using electrical conductors. Today, we are exploring the effects of phosphorous when alloyed with copper, and we are also discussing what happens when silver is added to the alloy.

Materials Calculators Blog
When ordering alloys, you may have the dimensions or length of a braze joint, but many products are sold by weight. How much should you order? Or, conversely, you may know the mass/weight, but need the length. Introducing: the new Lucas-Milhaupt materials calculators.

Torch Brazing Stainless Steel
Brazing stainless steels requires adequate planning, as the alloys used to form joints must have properties compatible with the base metal. However, a key advantage is that many dissimilar metals can be joined to stainless steels by brazing. The brazing process can yield strong joints that are ductile, clean and smooth. Tune in for today’s tips on torch brazing stainless steel.

Inspecting Brazed Joints
You have designed your braze joint, selected the appropriate braze materials, factored in fixturing, planned the brazing process and considered cleaning needs. However, have you built into the process how you will inspect the finished brazed joints? Let’s investigate this vital step in ensuring the quality and performance of your finished product.
