Finned tubes are an integral part of heat exchangers and other thermal managment systems, are a kind of heat exchange element, which are aimed to improve the efficiency of heat transfer, usually through adding fins on the surface of bare tube to increase the external surface area or internal surface area of tubes, so as to achieve the purpose of improving the thermal efficiency of heat exchangers.
Commonly used materials are: Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Copper Alloy, Aluminum and Nickel Alloy etc.
Here provide a shore introduction to finned tubes, explaining their applications, advantages and limitations, design and manufacturing process.
