Think of an edgewound as a washer, with two distinct advantages
- Not all brazing alloys are available in strip. Consequently, a conventional stamped brazing washer is not always an option. Because edgewounds originate as brazing wire, there is a greater selection of brazing alloys to choose from;
- Since an edgewound is a brazing wire product, there is no scrap. This makes it possible to get the geometry of a brazing washer at a much lower price.
Keep in mind that there are some physical limitations to edgewounds, so consult a Bellman-Melcor representative to learn more.
