Synopses & Reviews
It begins by explaining the history behind the development of the brazing before moving on to discuss the important parameters and elements of the process itself. Chapter 3 discusses the fundamental importance of the base metal and its associated characteristics and Chapter 4 explains how to select the most appropriate base before moving on to discuss filler metal. A detailed description of all the important fiber materials is given as is the family groups of the base metals. Flux and atmospheres are then outlined followed by a discussion of joint design, tooling, surface preparation, inspection and safety. Applications are considered in chapter 7 before finally looking to the future of brazing.
Set against other texts dedicated to brazing the book comes out well. The author has avoided the temptation to adopt a theoretical approach and offers much by way of guidance and instruction. On balance, it is well worth the money - Insight; Easy to find specific, practical information on any metal, filler or flux - Choice
This text provides a comprehensive overview of the technology surrounding the brazing process to allow the inexperienced engineer, student or professional, to utilize fully this technology.
