HVAC Joining Aluminum to Copper
As the HVAC industry uses more aluminum components, manufacturers need to join these parts—such as evaporator and condenser coils—to secondary copper lines or assemblies. In brazing or soldering, joint design and brazing/soldering consumables become key elements for joint integrity. Let’s head to the lab, as Lucas-Milhaupt tests the effect that different joint designs and brazing/soldering materials have on the quality of joints. Results will help you determine suitable means for joining your copper-to-aluminum components.
