Brazing, a strong know-how
The process of brazing - and the quality of the brazed matrix - is a key phase in the manufacturing cycle of the heat exchanger. Fives’ Cryogenics | Energy business line fully masters and controls this operation and has done so for over 50 years (since 1959). The vacuum brazing furnaces are fitted with a special regulating system in order to achieve real-time predictive control of the brazing thermal cycle, under stress. This is done by mapping the actual temperature of the heat exchangers at every moment of the brazing operation. The process has been fully optimized by developing a 3D software that simulates the brazing thermal cycle in advance.
By integrating all the predictive regulating logic and all the equipment's design data, this package optimizes all parameters, and is used as soon as during the design phase.
