Certain metals such as white metal have a very low melting point and therefore require precision in terms of soldering so that other parts are not damaged. Aquaflame produces an extremely precise flame, especially with the no.24 tip allowing easy soldering of white metal parts.Speak to an expert
Aquaflame machines are widely used for soldering jewellery – they produce a clean, high temperature precision flame that can be used for a number of jewellery soldering / welding applications as follows:
Aquaflame machines are ideal for both jewellery manufacturing and jewellery repairs. They are widely used by independent jewellers, manufacturing jewellers and repair departments of retail jewellers. Aquaflame is a versatile and powerful machine that enables the operator to do all of the soldering jobs in the workshop. It can also be used for melting scrap for recycling and annealing. Additionally, Aquaflame is the perfect tool for soldering all types of precious metals.
Aquaflame machines are high performance oxyhydrogen gas-generating units producing a high temperature precision flame – in the range of 1200-3300°C * (2192-5972°F) used for soldering and welding items. Aquaflame is also referred to as a Water Torch, Microweld, Mini Welder, Micro Flame, Aqua torch, Hydroflame. Hydrogem, Jewel Flame, Klein Weld.
Using a standard electrical supply, hydrogen and oxygen are produced by the electrolysis of distilled water so that the hydrogen can be burnt in the oxygen. The oxyhydrogen gas is passed through an MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone) solution which reduces the temperature to about 1850°C and transforms the flame to a blueish yellow colour. The flame is a highly controllable and efficient high energy heat source. The only product of this process, other than energy, is water. The Aquaflame is safe as it only produces gas as required; it is also efficient, clean and environmentally friendly. Aquaflame is truly a remarkable soldering machine.
Aquaflame is powerful enough to solder platinum. Aquaflame generates a flame at 1850°C so is not hot enough to melt platinum. However, the oxyhydrogen flame will melt easily and medium platinum solder thus allowing the solder to flow into the joint.
White metal has a very low melting point and therefore requires precision in terms of soldering so that other parts are not damaged. Aquaflame produces an extremely precise flame, especially with the no.24 tip allowing easy soldering of white metal parts.
Due to Aqauflame machines being highly precise task such as soldering post to earrings is light work.
Using a no.18 tip it is possible to solder large bangle components. The Oxyhydrogen flame is clean and precise resulting in reduced oxidization and easier polishing. The only by-product of Aquaflame is water.
Aquaflame is powerful enough to solder heavyweight chain. The Model 800 is the bestselling machine for jewellery and will generate 120 litres of gas per hour. Using a no.18 tip it is possible to do large soldering work.
Aquaflame shows its versatility by easily soldering small lightweight chains. The precision tips allow access to delicate parts without causing damage to other areas. It is possible to change the tips so as to generate a tiny precision flame.
Aquaflame is ideal for soldering medical instruments due to its precision and clean flame.
Used in dental labs for the construction of dental appliances and also it's used for joining wires, bands springs, and dentures.
