Oxy-fuel Equipment Safety Guidelines
Safety is a full-time responsibility. Accidents don't need to happen. Always follow these basic safety rules when working with oxy-fuel equipment:
Tensile Strength of Brazed Joints
Brazing joint strength depends on several factors: clearance between parts, base metal composition, service temperature and joint quality (low voids, good penetration). Joint design will also affect strength.

This video tech tip demonstrates some of the benefits of switching to alternate fuel for metal cutting.
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.
