Induction Brazing Aluminum Automotive

Induction Brazing Aluminum Automotive 

Objective: Heat aluminum for an automotive brazing application
Material: Aluminum tubing 0.50 (12.7mm) dia, an aluminum boss 1” (25.4mm) long, flux filled braze rings
Temperature: 1200 ºF (649 ºC)
Frequency: 370 kHz
Equipment • DW-UHF-10KW induction heating system, equipped with a remote workhead containing one 1.0μF capacitors for a total of 1.0 μF
• An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A multi turn pancake coil is used to heat the joint between the aluminum tubing and boss. The joint heats to temperature in 1.5 minutes and the braze ring melts forming a clean brazed
joint.
Results/Benefits Induction heating provides:
• Hands-free heating that involves minimal operator skill for manufacturing
• Flameless application
• Reliable, repeatable aesthetically pleasing braze joint
• Even distribution of heating

Brazing Brass to Aluminum with Induction

Brazing Brass to Aluminum with Induction

Objective: Copper ‘tees’ and ‘ells’ are to be brazed to the aluminum body of a refrigeration valve

Material customer’s valve copper fittings braze

Temperature 2550 ºF (1400°C)

Frequency 360 kHz

Equipment DW-UHF-10KW induction heating system including a workhead containing two 1.5μF capacitors (total 0.75μF) and a three-turn helical coil

Process The valve is placed inside the coil and RF power is applied until the part is heated to the required temperature and the braze is seen to flow into the joint. Two tube sizes were run using the same induction system settings with differing cycle times.

Results/Benefits • energy is applied only to the zone to be heated • heating of the joint/braze is uniform and repeatable
