Brazing with Inferno by Harris image

Learn about brazing and soldering from George Benyak, INFERNO® product development team member and industry veteran. The INFERNO in use with Bridgit lead-free solder. Bridgit is widely used in plumbing applications where lead-bearing solders are prohibited. Bridgit contains nickel, making joints tremendously strong. A wide plastic range makes Bridgit and excellent alloy for large diameter fittings and ill-fitted on non-concentric pipes.



Brazing Copper to Steel with Harris Safety-Silv® 56 and the Inferno® by Harris

Brazing with Inferno by Harris image

Learn about brazing and soldering from George Benyak, INFERNO® product development team member and industry veteran. The INFERNO and Safety-Silv 56, a brazing filler metal, are used by George in this demonstration. Harris Safety-Silv 56 offers good joint strength and ductility on nickel alloys, which will avoid the possibility of stress corrosion cracking. Safety-Silv 56 is a good color match on stainless steel and it has excellent fluidity that promotes penetration for good strength and elongation.



Brazing Copper to Copper with Harris Dynaflow® and the Inferno® by Harris
