Our tube-fin heat exchangers consist of copper or stainless-steel tubes expanded into copper or aluminum fin. Tube-fin heat exchangers are cost effective, offer good heat removal and are used in many industries including military and aerospace, medical equipment, lasers, analytical instrumentation, power electronics, semiconductor equipment, machine tools, telecommunications, and more.
Fin heat exchangers provide a significantly increased surface area due to numerous thin fins situated in the thermal path. They are very suitable for dissipating excess heat in liquids to the ambient air or a second cooling circuit. In compressor cooling systems, fin heat exchangers are, alongside the compressor itself, an essential and indispensable element for efficient heat dissipation. Cabinet coolers also usually work with fin heat exchangers to keep the air in the cabinet at the desired temperature.
With copper, stainless steel or aluminium as wetted surfaces, our fin heat exchangers are compatible with water, glycol-water, corrosive fluids such as de-ionised water, oil, dielectric fluids and polyalphaolefin.
Copper and stainless-steel tube heat exchangers consist of copper or stainless-steel tubes expanded into copper or aluminium fins. Due to this construction, tube-fin heat exchangers are cost-effective and remove heat reliably out of many applications such as lasers, electronics, compressor cooling, solder reflow machines or in semiconductor manufacturing.
Aluminium heat exchangers with flat tubes are designed to offer excellent performance with poor heat transfer fluids such as ethylene glycol/water solutions (EGW) or oils, but are not compatible with untreated water. For a stable yet lightweight construction, the aluminium flat tube fluid channels in these flat tube oil coolers are vacuum-brazed with aluminium fins and provided with a frame. Such oil coolers are very suitable for liquid cooling of hydraulic oil, high-speed spindles, aircraft engines, X-ray tubes and many other applications.
Custom heat exchanger coils
A wide range of standard products is available for various heat load to initial temperature difference ratios. If you can’t find a standard project covering your project’s requirements, our thermal experts can specify and design a customized heat exchanger solution tailored specifically to your needs. Our customizable heat exchanger coils are available in virtually any size from 5 cm x 5 cm to 2 m x 5 m. Its tube-fin constructions can be equipped with tubes from copper, aluminium or stainless steel in many different tube patterns and tube diameters in 5 mm, 7 mm, 3/8” or ½”. Special options include nano-coating that prevents dust accumulation, a cost effective aluminium tube construction suitable for ultra clean water or highest grade stainless steel tubes suitable for sea water among others.
