Application story: UltraFlex's Time-Efficient Induction Brazing for Stainless Steel Tubes
UltraFlex's advanced induction heaters are an ideal solution for time-efficient induction brazing of stainless steel assembly, ensuring precision, uniformity, and environmental safety.
In this customer scenario, a manufacturer from the automotive industry was looking to replace their existing induction heating equipment with UltraFlex one and needed to evaluate the heating parameters for a major induction brazing process. The parts to be brazed in the process were a tube with 0.78" (1.98 cm) outside diameter and 0.07" (0.18 cm) wall and fitting with 0.78" (1.98 cm) internal diameter.
UltraFlex engineers recommended the usage of an induction heater from the UltraFlex SOLO series as most appropriate for this customer heating scenario. The UltraFlex SOLO Systems are a breakthrough innovation in induction heating technology, featuring a unique Direct Digital Step™ control algorithm.
To ensure optimal results in this customer scenario, UltraFlex tested the performance of two types of induction coils - a helical induction coil with 2 turns and a C-shape induction coil with 3 turns. At power supply of 5 kW, using the helical coil, it took 13 seconds to reach the brazing temperature and complete the brazing process. At power of 13 kW and using a C-shape induction coil, the heating cycle time achieved was the same.
The test application performed by UltraFlex confirmed the high energy efficiency of UltraFlex induction brazing for the specific customer case and helped identify the most efficient induction heating setup. In addition, the digital control of the UltraFlex induction heating solutions ensures precision and uniformity of the brazing results, with no risk for errors or dependency on the operator skills. Going for an UltraFlex induction heater also ensures an environmentally safe and clean process, thanks to the lack of open flame and noxious emissions.
In summary, UltraFlex's advanced induction heaters are an ideal solution for time-efficient induction brazing of stainless steel assembly, ensuring precision, uniformity, and environmental safety.
