What is a Brazed Joint?

   Posted by: Chad   in Brazed Joint, Plumbing Definitions

A Brazed Joint is any joint obtained by joining of metal parts with alloys which melts at temperatures at higher than 840 degrees Farenheight, but lower than the melting temperatures of the parts to be joined.
This application would be used for different applications due to environmental situations. Example:
If you need to join to pipe together using fittings and or expansion techniques underground you would not use soft soldering to do this. It would be required to utilize the brazing technique. The seal floss joint would be just as strong or stronger than the pipe itself. the pipe is also somewhat malleable to under take settling and movement near the joint connection.
