BRAZING

Brazing is a metal-joining process whereby a filler metal is heated above melting point and distributed between two or more close-fitting parts by capillary action. The filler metal is brought slightly above its melting (liquid) temperature while protected by a suitable atmosphere, usually a flux. It then flows over the base metal (known as wetting) and is then cooled to join the work pieces together. It is similar to soldering, except the temperatures used to melt the filler metal are higher for brazing.

Course Outline

  • Introduction to brazing

A basic overview of brazing, providing personnel a better understanding of the joining method they are employing.

  • Selecting, assembling and conducting pre-operational checks of brazing equipment.
  • Preparing work pieces prior to Brazing.
  • The Six Fundamental steps of Brazing 

The six steps in brazing that if followed correctly will produce consistent high quality braze joints. Discussion will cover proper heating, alloy application and procedures for torch brazing

  • Base Metals – Base metals commonly used in the HVAC/R industry
  • Choosing the Appropriate Filler Metal and Flux – Suggested braze alloys and fluxes for different base metal combinations
  • Torch Safety 

Safe brazing practices and proper handling of brazing equipment

  • Torch Brazing Demonstration and Training 

Demonstration of brazing methods will be shown at the end of the training session along with time for attendees to practice proper brazing procedures

  • Inspecting brazed work pieces
  • Health and Safety Standards.

Purpose of the course

To equip the student with the skills of joining metals using brazing whereby a filler metal is heated above melting point and distributed between two or more close-fitting parts by action. The course will address all persons in the manufacturing industry to achieve skills in oxy-fuel brazing. The successful participant will be able to solve brazing tasks within a metal work or construction environment in order to improve productivity and quality within the workplace or improve his own employability.

Duration

2 Weeks

Materials

Stainless steel; Carbon Steel; Mild steel; Duplex; Titanium; Aluminium

Career Benefits

-The learner will achieve a level of skills which enhances his status in a company or will lead to a formal employment. At the completion of the course each student will receive a certificate of completion, recognized and certified by the relevant local and international stakeholders.

-The successful participant will be able to produce high quality welds, brazing, cuts, and pierces and to solve more advanced welding tasks in all positions within a metal work environment in order to improve productivity and quality within the workplace and improve his won employability in the sectors of building ships, models, bridges, and autos, and building construction.

Assessment Method

Throughout the training, continuous assessments are carried out by the way of written tests and practical assignments in order to monitor progress of the trainee and effectiveness of learning.
