Overview - Weld & Braze
Weld & Braze Adapters join tubing or pipe to the adapter by butting the material to the fitting or by inserting the tubing or pipe into a socket in the fitting. uses special reduced carbon content TSS 316 material for all stainless Weld & Braze Adapters. When
proper welding and brazing procedures are used, this material prevents the possibility of intergranular corrosion caused by carbide precipitation during assembly. can provide additional information on this subject.
Suggested Applications
Weld & Braze Adapters are designed for joining tubing or pipe to other components carrying pressurized fluid or gas. They are not designed for mechanically joining components. The weld connection should not be subject to these weight loading
stresses. Because of the permanent nature of the seal, weld& braze adapters are frequently used in hydraulic systems with extremely high operating pressures and/or vibration.
