Factors to Consider When Choosing a Brazing Alloy
Brazing requires that the filler metal flow into a capillary between the two closely aligned base metals to be joined. In the case of copper-phosphorus braze alloys - these base metals are usually copper or brass, and joint integrity is dependent on a number of factors in addition to the choice of filler metal.

Making the Switch to Alternate Fuel: Changing Just the Tip is Not Enough
If you are using an alternate fuel with equipment specifically designed for acetylene, you may not be realizing all the benefits of an alternate fuel. It often takes more than just changing the tip.
Silver's Role in Phos-Copper Brazing Filler Metals
Probably the most widely used brazing filler metal is an alloy of copper and phosphorus, often with silver added as a third element. The role of silver in these alloys is often misunderstood.
Turn up the Brazing Heat
When brazing and soldering, most HVACR technicians routinely use manual torches as their heat source. For brazing there are generally two equipment options to choose from: oxygen/acetylene or air/acetylene. While alternate fuel gases are available, most contractors still use acetylene. The equipment features and benefits of each type will be the focus in this article.
