Hydrogen Brazing is a metal joining technique where the materials (typically ceramic, steel, stainless steel or oxygen-free copper) are joined together in a high temperature hydrogen environment. The braze filler material (braze alloy) is usually a combination of copper, nickel, and precious metals such as gold or silver.
as Metal Injection Moulding, the high temperatures sintering of refractory metals and ceramics, precision brazing, metallization and the ceramic to metal joining of components. Recent installations to date have centred around applications in Micro-MIM parts, silicon nitride components, high temperature sintering and hydrogen brazing.
Mar 01, 2014 · The throughput and process repeatability have made this furnace a successful tool for dependable production in applications such as precision brazing, metal injection molding (MIM) and high-temperature sintering of refractory metals and ceramics, as well as metallization and ceramic-to-metal joining of components.
Active Metal Element Brazing. For certain geometries and layouts of a ceramic and metal seal, IJ Research uses a braze that contains a small amount of highly reactive element to bond directly to the ceramic. In this process, the ceramic does not need to be metallized prior to brazing.
What is Brazing? Brazing joins metals by flowing a thin capillary thickness layer of non-ferrous filler metal into the space between them. Bonding results from the intimate contact produced by dissolution of a small amount of base metal into the molten filler metal, without fusion of the base metal.

SCT has many different controlled-atmosphere furnaces for ceramic to metal brazing. The vacuum brazing is performed in bell type furnaces. SCT has around ten furnaces for vacuum brazing and controlled-atmosphere brazing. The brazed assemblies can also be performed in bell type furnaces using hydrogen/nitrogen.
Our capabilities include vacuum, hydrogen, and torch brazing to produce metal-to-metal, ceramic-to-metal and ceramic-to-ceramic assemblies. Our atmosphere controlled, air, and vacuum furnaces can braze at temperatures ranging from 360° to 1100°C.
During the brazing procedure, (which must be carried out under vacuum or pure, ultra dry, argon or hydrogen), the activating element reacts with the ceramic substrate to form a series of highly complex inter-metallic metallurgical phases these being subsequently wet by the molten filler material.
The overall furnace construction is based on either batch type or continuous operation. Batch operation includes retort type furnaces used for hydrogen brazing and vacuum chambers for vacuum brazing. Vacuum furnaces are widely used, and often companies will utilise them for heat treatment as well as brazing.
Hydrogen furnace can be used for ceramic sintering or metallization, brazing, glass parts for sealing metal parts annealing and purification. It can also be used for sintering powder metallurgy and semiconductor alloy. In operation, pay attention to safety of air circuit, circuit and water system, especially to prevent leakage into the air, so as to avoid high temperature hydrogen spontaneous combustion explosion accident.
Dec 07, 2015 · By comparison, a continuous-belt furnace, as its name implies, is a furnace, open at both ends, in which a long, metallic-mesh belt is constantly moving through it in a continuous, endless loop. Parts to be brazed are loaded onto the belt at the front of the furnace, then proceed into a heating chamber (hot zone) on a steady, non-stop basis.
The Oxy-Gon FC Series General Purpose Ceramic Furnace The FC Series General Purpose Ceramic Furnaces are designed to provide years of continuous service while requiring a low investment cost. General Purpose Furnace Data Sheet. When you need a furnace for a wide variety of industrial applications, your goal is a high quality end product and
The system utilizes a ceramic tube with water-cooled, leak tight flanges at both ends. The tube furnace is able to provide heat treatment up to 1600 °C even in a pure Hydrogen atmosphere. The ceramic tube is automatically flooded with inert gas prior to the introduction of Hydrogen gas for safety.
acetylene, hydrogen or propane. A typical application is to braze a tube into a fitting using copper or silver brazing filler metals . Hot Load Load Vac pump Heat Sources for Brazing Vacuum furnace A furnace with electrically heated elements that surround the workload and heat the brazing filler metal to the liquidus
Figure 1. Controlled Atmosphere Brazing Furnace. Controlled atmosphere brazing furnaces of the continuous type are some of the most common furnaces used in brazing. The goal of a brazing furnace is to provide a time, temperature, atmosphere relationship that is accurate, repeatable and economical in meeting the requirements of the brazing process.
Through atmosphere or vacuum brazing, we join metal to metal and ceramic to metal in a controlled environment. These processes protect the assemblies from oxidation. Our active metal brazing process is suited for assembling metal substrates to ceramic parts without metallization and is normally very cost effective.
