VAC AERO Brazes Aluminum for Airborne Electronics

The traditional approach to brazing aluminum is dip brazing, where the assembly is immersed in a bath of molten salt that acts as a flux to promote braze alloy flow. Because of its light weight and excellent thermal conductivity, aluminum often is the material of choice for assemblies that house or cool airborne electronics.

Hot Zone Repair, Re-build and Retrofit

Besides catastrophic damage due to mechanical abuse, eutectic melting or braze alloy spillage, vacuum furnace hot zones will deteriorate over time as a result of the repeated thermal cycling to which they are exposed. Graphite-based insulation construction, including the use of modern carbon composite materials, usually lasts longer than metal-based construction.
