SILVER AND COPPER ALLOY BRAZED JOINTS FOR AIRCRAFT POWERPLANTS
|Publication Date:||15 November 1960|
This recommended practice covers the design requirements necessary to attain silver and copper brazed joints for aircraft quality, as primarily applied to tube connections, for aircraft powerplants. The environmental conditions stated herein, and those given in the applicable specifications, provide the limitations of this ARP.
PURPOSE: This ARP is intended to contain all data known to be pertinent to good design for silver and copper alloy brazed joints, based on sound engineering principles currently used throughout the aircraft powerplant industry, and provides a recommended practice for appropriate design configurations, engine and propeller standard utility parts, as applicable, and other powerplant components.
It further establishes a common standard practice for swaged tubing and common standard for the inside diameter of the mating part of fittings for either silver or copper brazed joints. The purpose of establishing a common inside diameter for both brasing applications is facilitate manufacturing and to reduce the cost of related parts.
