UltraFlex demonstrates induction soldering of 4 different copper tube assemblies within 1 minute
The induction soldering process required no specific environment, and guaranteed high-quality result, with no dependency on the operator skills.
In this test application, performed for a manufacturer of water heaters, UltraFlex demonstrated the induction soldering process for 4 different sizes of copper pipes and fittings – with size ranging from 0.25'' OD to 2.5'' OD (6.35 mm to 63.5 mm).
An UltraFlex induction heater from the UltraHeat SM series had been used to accomplish the soldering. UltraHeat SM are compact 5kW induction heaters. Operating with either a water-cooled or air-cooled remote heat station, they feature adaptive digital phase control providing efficient operation in a wide frequency range.
The induction soldering process was performed using a custom induction soil, which delivered precise heat to the desired area. Preformed solder rings applied to the joints ensured consistent and repeatable soldering results.
Using the same induction heater for all pipe assemblies, it took only a minute to accomplish the soldering process for all 4 joints. The result was strong, reliable and consistent joints, done at a fraction of the time and costs required with traditional, flame-based soldering.
The soldering process required no specific environment, and guaranteed high-quality result, with no dependency on the operator skills. Finally, the induction soldering was a completely safe process, ensuring compliance with all company safety regulations - it was safe both for the operator and safe for the environment, due to the lack of open flame, noxious emissions and fumes.
