UltraFlex demonstrates the usage of induction to braze various piping systems within seconds
This test setup allowed the customer to fully evaluate the heating parameters and induction heater needed to braze all 4 different piping assemblies.
4 samples were provided for brazing. An UltraFlex induction heater from the UltraFlex W series was considered most appropriate for these brazing scenarios. UltraHeat W are advanced, cost-effective 5-15 kW Induction Heaters utilizing the latest switching power supply technology. They feature adaptive digital phase control providing very efficient operation in a wide frequency range.
To perform the brazing for the first 3 samples, a UBraze HandHeld gun along with an open induction coil had been used. With power applied between 7.3 kW and 7.6 kW and target temperature of 700-750°C, it took mere 8 to 11 seconds to complete the brazing for each of those 3 different samples. The largest brass coupler had been brazed with a static induction coil, with power of 8.8 kW applied. It took 2 minutes to reach the target temperature of 629°C and successfully accomplish the brazing for that assembly.
This test setup allowed the customer to fully evaluate the heating parameters and induction heater needed to braze all 4 different piping assemblies. The total time to braze all 4 samples would be less than 5 minutes, which would allow the customer to substantially increase his productivity rates. The faster heat cycles would ensure a very energy-efficient and hence, cost-efficient process. The customer would also be able to achieve consistent and repeatable results that do not depend on the operator skills. Finally, he would be able to ensure a quality, safe working place due to the lack of open flame, smoke and noxious emissions.
