Sil-Fos 15 Rings designed for brazing copper tubular components for HVAC/R installation applications. The Sil-Fos rings use a calculated alloy volume for use with standard size copper tube from 1/4 inch to 1-1/8 inch. The advantage of using these rings is consistent and repeatable joint quality while controlling alloy usage. Braze rings are easy to use, minimize waste, and provide visual verification of a complete, sound braze joint.
There are a few easy steps to this application: Clean the areas to be brazed; insert the ring into the fitting, the tube is inserted to seat the ring at the bottom; uniformly apply heat, and upon melting, the filler metal is drawn through the joint via capillary to the exterior surface. A witness line of alloy at the exterior joint assures that complete alloy penetration has been successfully completed. To view this step-by-step, visit our video page at: www.silfos.com/videos
