it seems that propane is the gas of choice when sweating copper? i am curious as to why. unless i am mapp gas burns hotter which allows the joint to accept solder more quickly? that is what i used to think and as such have been using MAPP gas instead of propane. My last product had me running out of MAPP a few joints away from being complete and instead of running to the store i grabbed my left over propane tank to finish the job. the propane flame seemed to work more quickly than the mapp gas. i was curious as to if anyone knows why?
No announcement yet.
