- - soldering capacity of at least two hundred watts;
- - tin;
- - acid;
- - rubber stoppers on the number of holes of the radiator;
- - brush with metal bristles.
Remove the radiator stove.Close all holes with rubber plugs.Be careful when selecting and installing the plugs, to avoid problems with their later retrieval.Dip the heater radiator in a water bath and find a place visually leaking of exhaust air bubbles (just as we seek to flow into the cell cycle).Please rate the degree of damage to the radiator.If leaks are few or one big, it makes sense to think about buying a new radiator.Since the reliability of the repaired is a big question.
Remove the radiator from the bath and wipe it dry with a cloth.Mel or stud mark places from which air
escapes.Be careful not to apply too much pressure, making a mark with a nail.Provaltsuyte place for future soldering pliers, if possible.This will improve the future integrity and increase the reliability of the connection.
Strip cooked brush marked space next soldering.Also for cleaning surfaces, you can use sandpaper or a drill with a special nozzle.Be careful when using it in order not to damage the small parts on the radiator.Treat the bare surface of the acid, to degrease them and improve the quality of soldering.
Solder indicated and degreased place preheat the soldering iron.Solder does not regret, but do not overdo it with the quantity.With an excess of solder can crack and fall off.Also in the alternative solder can be used so-called "cold welding".When used correctly it is possible to achieve good results.
Immerse again radiator stove in the bath for the detection of defective soldering.Before re-soldering the radiator dry thoroughly and then treat it with acid.Then repair the stove can be considered complete.
Helpful Hint Before using a soldering iron is required to ask his power.In this case, the power - an important factor for the quality of soldering.
