Diesel Aluminum Hydraulic Oil Tank Repair

Testimonials

Mike,

These pics come from a new aerospace test facility that they are constructing at the University of Notre Dame. The SSF-6 is working great.

 

aluminum welding and metal repair

I am attempting to make all of these fittings air tight as they are used for pressure measurements. We can¹t have any leaks. I had very little warpage of my base metal and I think this is really going to work out very well.

This diesel tow truck jack-knived and ripped a cut into this aluminum hydraulic oil tank, and couldn't wait two weeks for a replacement tank on order.

 

 

They drained the oil below the damaged area and made the repair with Super Alloy 5 and an oxy-acetylene torch. Removing the part was unnecessary.

 

 

End result? A $400.00 aluminum tank repaired in seconds with 50 cents worth of Super Alloy 5--and thousands of dollars saved in lost downtime.

 

TIPS:

 

Thick aluminum requires oxyacetylene, oxypropane, oxynatural gas, or oxyMapp gas to heat the base metal to the required 600 degrees. If your flux is not liquifying, it is because your base metal is not hot enough.

 

 

Heat the base metal first, then the base metal and the rod.

 

 

Aluminum dissipates heat quickly, so its important to keep the flame broadly moving to ensure your base metal stays above 600 degrees. Always keep your flux bottle as close as possible to the repair area, because every time you move your torch away, the aluminum drops approximately 100 degrees per second.
