Brazing/Welding a Steel Hydraulic Line with a Steel Fitting

John at MHSS (a hydraulic hose repair shop) saves a $300 hydraulic hose using SSF-6 silver solder.  John charged $70 for the repair, saving his customer $230 and the downtime that would have been necessary waiting for a new part.

 

TIPS:

  • When working your way around the tube, it is not always necessary to add more flux to flow–simply add a little heat to pull the material around the tube.
  • Make sure the metal is clean before soldering.
  • Allow the flux work for momentarily before adding the rod.
