Solar Atmospheres, Souderton, PA, has commissioned a 25,000-sq.-ft. brazing facility aimed at high-volume, high-quality braze production. The facility boasts six vacuum furnaces dedicated to brazing, including a unique all-metal hot-zone furnace designed for brazing stainless steel to copper with silver and gold-based filler metal. It also includes 4000 sq. ft. of climate-controlled workspace where technicians assemble and inspect parts, ranging from tiny capillary-tube manifolds to large land-based gas-turbine blades. The operation incorporates increased capacity for helium leak testing and pre-braze tack welding of braze assemblies.
