Finned & Studded Tubes

Fin tubes are used wherever electric power is generated or raw materials are refined and where efficient cooling is required. Fin tubes are needed in a constantly increasing quantity for the production of heatexchangers, condensers, coolers and furnaces. The great increase of thermal efficiency when applying fin tubes allows substantial reduction in costs of cooling equipment. The surface of such tubes is substantially increased and as a result, less tubes are required compared with exchangers with plain tubes.

Description of available types of TECHNIFIN® Tubes

TECHNIFIN® Type ``G``

The fin strip is wound into a mechanically produced groove and tightened by backfilling of the base material under pressure. Groove depth 0.4 mm.
Advantages
High fin stability, excellent heat transfer, high operating temperature.

TECHNIFIN® Type ``L, KL, DL``

The fin strip is shaped into a „L“ and wound onto the tube surface under tension.
Advantages
Core tube extensively protected against corrosion by the fin foot, finning of very thin-walled tubes possible.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``HY``

A smooth core tube is inserted into an aluminum tube.
Advantages
Bond of outer and inner tube removes the risk of loss of contact due to thermal stress, fins are more rigid.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``HYS``

As type “HY“, but fins are serrated.
Advantages
Higher heat transfer coefficient, for same pressure drop compared with „HY“ fin.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``I``

The fin strip is wound onto the base tube. Typical fin material is steel.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``N``

The fins are rolled out of the wall of the plain tube. Tube and fin are consisting of one piece.
Advantages
Excellent heattransfer, good bending properties, wide range of material can be used.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``M``

Manufacturing and advantages as described for type „N“ bit with higher fins.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``WO``

The fin strip is wound spirally onto the tube and welded continuously to the tube along the spiral root.
Advantages
Strong connection between fin and base tube, prevents loosening of fin because of heat stress, oxidization, corrosion etc., use at very high temperatures possible.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``WOS``

As per type „WO“ but fins are serrated.
Advantages
Higher heat coefficient. For the same pressure drop compared with „WO“ fin.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``LFS``

Extruded or drawn fin tube, seamless with two longitudinal opposite fins. Used in boiler wall constructions.
Advantages
Strong connection between fin and base tube, prevents loosening of fin because of heat stress, oxidization, corrosion etc., use at very high temperatures possible.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``LFW``

I/L or U fins welded longitudinally onto the base tube.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``S``

Square fins are welded onto a round base tube.

TECHNIFIN® TYPE ``DOUBLE S``

Square fins are welded onto two round base tubes.

TECHNISTUD® TYPE ``S``

Steel studs are welded by a special process onto the base tube.
