Brazing Ring Preforms
A wide range of wire diameters are available as small as .012″ up to .187″. The inner diameter of a brazing ring can range from .012″ to beyond 16″. There are three typical types of brazing rings:
- I.D. Rings – A full turn of wire generally sized to the O.D. of a tube.
- Gap Ring – Usually designed to hold in place inside a hole, also called O.D. rings, these are made slightly oversize with a defined gap. To avoid tangling, this type of brazing ring is supplied on a cardboard tube.
- Segment Rings – This type of brazing ring is used when the components to be brazed are already assembled. A 210° segment ring can be “snapped” into the desired location. The wire diameter is adjusted to provide adequate volume for the entire braze joint.
