Calculating Ring Volume

To produce a proper braze joint, the volume of alloy used must match or exceed the volume of the joint to be brazed. The use of excess alloy adds cost and may require an additional post-machining operation. To ensure consistency in brazing, Lucas-Milhaupt has developed rings of pre-measured braze alloys for each specific application. These products ensure proper ring volume for the tube-and-fitting application, but first, the volume of the joint clearance must be properly calculated. Let’s walk through the process.

Alloy Consumption Savings with Handy One

Alloy Consumption Savings When operators manually braze components with a torch, solid wire, and a separate brazing flux, there is a variance in the amount of brazing alloy among joints. This can result in excess alloy being consumed. Excess alloy means wasted materials, inconsistent brazing, and higher costs. Read on for a better alternative!
