I want to make some rocket parts from 316 stainless by diffusion brazing
smaller parts into a larger assembly.
The assembly has to have both the cryogenic and high temperature strengths
of 316, so using 316L is not an option.
The long heat-treatment cycle used for the diffusion brazing (includes 1 hr
at 1065 C) will cause carbide? (I am not a metallurgist) growth problems.
Is there a way to treat the assembly after brazing to reverse that growth
process - or do you have any other suggestions?
Accurate temperature cycling in controlled atmospheres is conveniently
