Different metal joining processes each have advantages and applications for which they are best suited. An often overlooked capability of vacuum brazing is the simultaneous combining of three metal treatments in one process: bonding, cleaning and heat treating.
William R. Jones, David Rinz and Real Fradette, Vacuum Furnace Systems Corporation, August 1994 - Four vacuum furnaces, specially designed by engineers of Vacuum Furnace Systems Corp, Souderton PA to braze electric power interrupter assemblies of the vacuum arc suppression type are described.
Five large heat exchanger segments for an experimental power reactor (Tokamak) for Princeton Plasma Physics have been successfully vacuum furnace brazed. Each segment was brazed, one at a time, in a vacuum furnace (Model HL66) at Solar Atmospheres, Inc.
