The compressor is an essential component in the refrigeration cycle that uses mechanical energy to compress or squeeze gaseous refrigerant.  Leak tight joints are critical within a closed loop refigeration system.  Lucas Milhaupt braze alloy is utilized in making these leak tight joints.

Brazed parts include: attaching the muffler tube (steel) to the shock loop (stainless steel) and the shock loop to the discharge fitting on the exterior of the shell. A critical step is keeping flux and braze out of the internal tube.
