silver solder melt temp?

Wha temperature does silver brazing alloy melt at and can I use it to solder a broken stainless tubing fitting? This thing could see up to 900 degree service. It would sure be easier than welding it up.

Your basic silver solder has a melt temp of no more than 750 degrees or so.

http://www.jwharris.com/jwprod/hisilverbrazealloys/ has a product called Safety-Silv 56 with a 1200 degree melt temp. The description sounds exactly like the right thing for your application.

Thank you very much Arthur and Rick. Steered me right where to go and figured some of you soldered a lot. I just happened to have some Harris safety silv 45 right here and it looks to be even better than the 56. Made it worth the wait till morning to find out for sure. Thanks again.
