Description / Abstract:

These recommended practices encompass those procedures that should be followed in the design, manufacture, and examination of brazed joints for critical components in order to assure their reliability in service.

The procedures recommended represent the best current practice and are necessary to the control of brazed joint quality. These practices are applicable to all products and brazing processes. Whenever any or some of these practices are omitted when producing critical components, the omission should be the result of a rational decision, not the result of a lack of knowledge of the best practice.

This document is divided into clauses addressing materials, design, manufacturing, and examination. These clauses are followed by Annex A, which presents a list of informative references; Annex B, which presents sample specifications that are intended as guides for the preparation of the user’s documents; Annex C, which presents a discussion of brazing risk management; Annex D, which presents a table relating to the quantification of the scope and magnitude of braze-induced discontinuities; Annex E, which presents systematic criteria for design of brazed components; and Annex F, which presents guidelines for the requesting of an official interpretation of an AWS standard.
