Extruded Aluminum Finned Tubes, also known as “Integral Finned Tubes”. Integral finned tubes are manufactured by rolling process on tubes. During finning operation, the inside diameter of the tubes is reduced and helical fins are rolled on the tube wall. The tubes material can be Copper AlloyBrass AlloysCopper Nickel AlloyTitanium Alloy, Stainless Steel, Duplex Stainless Steel etc. The pressure required to extrude fins from the aluminum sleeve creates an excellent “pressure bond” between the two materials.

  • Low Finned Tubes Coils
    • Manufactured by coiling the integral finned tube.
    • Improved heat transfer area therefore compact size of heat exchangers.
    • Available in Copper, in coil diameters as per user’s requirement (Min Coil ID 50 mm).
  • High Finned Tubes
    • High Finned Tubes have extruded fin heights up to 0.625″ (16mm). Single metal and bi-metallic finned tubes are available. Bi-metal finned tubes have a separate alloy liner tube inside the extruded fins. The mono-metal finned tubes have no liner tube with the fins integral with the tube.
  • Corrugated Tubes
    • Manufactured by corrugation process of indenting plain tube with smooth and uniform spiral projections, which generate turbulence in both outside and inside media.
    • Higher turbulence ensures uniform temperature distribution.
    • No thinning of tube wall during process of corrugation.

Extruded Aluminum Finned Tubes Characteristics

  • Heat transfer per meter of tube on the outside is equal to the heat transfer per meter on the inside.
  • The intermediate un-finned section and un-finned sections at both ends help to slip the integral finned tubes in to the tube-sheets of shell and tube heat exchanger in a manner similar to plain tubes.

Extruded Aluminum Finned Tubes Benefits

  • Combination of lower fin height and more fins per meter maintains the general ratio of 1:1 fin height to fin spacing.
  • Doesn’t require higher tube pitch therefore, doesn’t require shell size higher than shell of bare tube heat exchanger.
  • Improved heat transfer coefficient and rate of heat transfer as compared to conventional finned tube designs.
  • Compact design of heat exchanger having lesser weight and size.
  • Improved tube life.
