PhoenixTM supplied a hot-box brazing system to a supplier of aluminum radiators, condensers and evaporators to the automotive industry. The system will be used in the company’s CAB (controlled atmosphere brazing) furnaces, where temperature profiling is carried out on a daily basis to ensure consistently high product quality. Temperature monitoring in CAB furnaces is an application where the profiling system is more frequently used than in any other heat-treatment process.
In the past, the atmosphere within the furnace has caused profiling systems to rapidly deteriorate due to acid attack from the brazing flux chemicals. However, the design of PhoenixTM’s system prevents any corrosion of the thermal barrier, which was the main reason it was selected.
