Pressure Brazing

TSASK regulates the brazing of boilers, pressure vessels, fittings and pressure piping systems in accordance with part 2(3) and parts 28 – 30 of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Regulations. TSASK registers brazing procedure specifications, administers brazing performance qualifications and issues pressure brazing licences.

Brazing Performance Qualification

TSASK offers a standard brazing performance qualification test, unless otherwise is requested:

  • A 1.0” diameter Type L copper pipe (pipe with coupling) coupon is brazed in the vertical and horizontal positions using AWS A5.8 BCuP-5 filler metal and 100% nitrogen purging gas.

If the client requires qualification in a brazing procedure that differs from the standard test, then the client shall supply all materials and consumables.

This standard brazing performance qualification test will qualify the brazer for a certain range of essential variables. If a different range of essential variables is needed, then the client should request an alternate test configuration that will achieve the desired qualification. TSASK will do its best to accommodate alternate configurations.
