There are many different skills and techniques within the scope of hot working of metals in the field of joining metals. One of the skills and techniques is Brazing, using gas, usually Oxy/Acetylene, as the heat source to melt the Brazing materials to form the joint. This one day course seeks to give delegates the necessary training to ensure that they can operate safely and effectively in this particular technique.
During this course the delegates will carry out the following:
- Inspection procedures for gas controlled equipment – Code 7
- Daily check list for gas controlled equipment
- Maintenance inspection procedure for gas controlled equipment
- Gas cylinder recognition and identification
- Maintenance inspection procedure for pressure regulators
- Brazing materials, compounds and procedures
- Set up of equipment and brazing practice
Delegates do not require any previous experience of Brazing or Oxy/Acetylene equipment or any other form of welding technique or process.
Whilst there is no formal assessment on this course, delegates will need to demonstrate a basic working knowledge and understanding the Brazing process and the safe use of Oxy/Acetylene equipment. Observational feedback on delegates will be given by the instructor and, on successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.
This one day course is practical based and has been designed to teach delegates the principles, techniques and practices to enable them to safely and effectively operate Oxy/Acetylene equipment and the selection and use of the appropriate materials to Braze effectively.
