In House Heat Treater in the UK To Add More Brazing Capacity

“The latest system from SECO/WARWICK will be used for controlled atmosphere aluminum brazing at a manufacturer of heat exchangers in the UK. This addition will allow the customer to expand its range of sizes and dimensions of aluminum heat exchangers that can be brazed using the CAB technology. The Active Only line offers the greatest flexibility within the CAB furnace range while maintaining the same optimum performance as larger continuous lines.

SECO/WARWICK’s controlled atmosphere brazing (CAB) line featuring the Active OnlyR furnace will consist of a degreaser with afterburner and integrated energy recovery system, a spray fluxer, and an Active Only semi-continuous furnace. The system is comprised of a dryer, a purging chamber, a convection-heated brazing furnace, a protective atmosphere cooling chamber, and a final cooling chamber. This will be complemented by an integrated system for loading, sequencing, stacking, transferring, and unloading the work in progress.

This is not the first collaboration between the British manufacturer of industrial heat exchangers and SECO/WARWICK. “We delivered our first furnace to this company 17 years ago, in 2004. It was a furnace designed for the cutting-edge copper brazing technology of that time,” says Piotr Skarbiński, Vice President of the Aluminum & CAB Products Segment at the SECO/WARWICK Group.” The customer ordering the furnace has a very wide portfolio including heat exchangers for various industries. For this reason, the customer has chosen a solution which, in semi-continuous operation, offers the greatest flexibility with optimum performance.”
