New NITC HVACR Braze Certification

NITC announces a new braze certification for the HVACR Industry. Beginning March 1, 2019, NITC offers a new braze certification, developed for the HVACR sector. The NITC ASME IX R78 Braze Certification will qualify individuals for brazing on 1/8” through 1 1/8” ACR Tubing. 

With today’s new alternative refrigerants operating at higher pressures; it is essential to ensure a leak-free system by installing properly prepared, quality, sound joints.

This Braze was designed and intended to serve as a baseline of a Brazer’s ability to produce sound joints.  

NITC’s ASME IX R78 Braze was qualified for compliance with the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code Section IX and the ASME B31.5 Standard for Refrigeration Piping and Components.
