Research Confirms Advantages of CuproBraze Technology
Several technical papers about the underlying materials science governing the properties and use of CuproBraze alloys have been published. This research corroborates, clarifies and amplifies more than a decade of intense research, which began in the early nineties and led to the introduction of a new class of copper and brass materials for heat exchanger applications.
Factors to consider when selecting a suitable furnace are production volume, part size, available floor space, capital expense and operating cost.
Picking the Right Brazing Furnace
A CuproBraze heat exchanger is a marvel of design and manufacturing. In the manufacturing process, coils of copper strip and coils of brass strip are transformed into the most efficient air-to-air and liquid-to-air heat exchangers that are available today for the automotive and truck industries.
Special Machinery Boosts Production
Furnace Configurations Available for Every Production Objective
CuproBraze Proves Flexible in the Manufacture of Heat Exchangers
A wide range of heat exchanger cores of different sizes and designs can be processed on the same production line. Various furnace types are available depending on the objectives of the heat exchanger manufacturer and the mix of products. Moreover, the technology can be adapted to suit the local labor markets. These options are not just hypothetical but are in production. CuproBraze is used to manufacture heat exchangers of every size, from small space-heaters to huge radiators for locomotive diesel engines and stationary power plants.
Overview of CuproBraze Technology
“CuproBraze heat exchangers are made using special anneal-resistant alloys of copper and brass. Tubes are fabricated from brass strip and coated with a brazing filler material. The copper fins, coated tubes, headers and side supports made of brass are fitted together into a core assembly, which is then brazed in a furnace.
Many small, mid-size and high-volume production facilities are making CuproBraze heat exchangers for OEMs and the aftermarket since year 2000. So called one-shot brazing entered production scale in 2008. CuproBraze technology is flexible and scalable.
The International Copper Association licenses CuproBraze technology free of charge to heat exchanger manufacturers. Technical experts of the member companies of CuproBraze Alliance will assist you in transferring the technology to your production line anywhere in the world.” More
