Delfin Tubes, S.A. supplies the highest quality welded finned tubes to any part of the world. The newly designed manufacturing facility, with our state-of-the-art high frequency resistance welding machines, enable us to perform large scale projects in reduced times.
The steel fin, that may be solid or serrated, is helically wound and continuously welded to the tube by high frequency electric resistance welding. This produces an homogeneous, clean and continuous fin-totube bond with no additional weld material, for a very efficient heat flow and resistance to corrosion.
There are some applications for which one or the other high frequency finned tube type is preferred. While in some cases fouling and cleaning considerations will favour solid fins, serrated fins are superior with respect to weight, compactness and price.
The use of high-frequency current results in very localised heating of the tube surface and the edge of the fin. This skin effect produces higher weld speeds, hence post-weld heat treatment is not considered necessary because of the superficial nature of the changes in the microstructure.
Our finning machines are equipped with online single or duplex cold bending equipment that can manipulate both ends of tubes in a single operation, thus ensuring exact alignment of the ends. Our bending machines are capable of bending both bare or finned tubes with diameters from 31 mm to 76 mm.
If required, the external surfaces of finned tubes can be treated with a protective coating. Our engineers are always ready to assist you with design considerations to meet your specific product needs.
Uses of finned tubes
The main uses for high frequency welded finned tubes are in the heat recovery associated with boilers for power generation and in furnace applications for the petrochemical industry.
Sizes and materials
Our high frequency welding finning machines are capable of handling tube diameters from 21 mm o/d to 273 mm o/d and tube lengths of up to 26 meters. Fin sizes range from 6 mm to 38 mm high and from 0.8 mm to 3 mm thick.
Dimensional Data Sheet
Any combination of the following materials may be used for fin and tube: carbon, alloy, stainless steels and high nickel alloys.
How are finned tubes made?
It is formed by screwing fin strips made of copper or aluminum into machined grooves and backfilling to secure the lock. Fill the base tube material. Compared with other finned tubes, G type fin tubes are firmer. Therefore, it is widely used in places where high-temperature heat transfer is required.
High Frequency Finned Tubes
High frequency welding spiral fin tube is a new kind of heat transfer material which has the feature of wearing resistance and high efficient. And it is a kind of high efficiency and energy saving heat transfer element.
It adopts high frequency welding spiral technology, the national patent technology with high frequency power supplies as the heat source to heat the steel strip, steel pipe at the same time, yo make its welded together as a whole. This technology has the characteristics as high in thermal efficiency, large heat dissipation area, long service life, range adaptation temperature, high pressure, etc.
Widely used in waste heat recovery, petrochemical industry, power plant boiler, economizer, coaches, civil building heating, refrigerating, drying, medicine of wood drying, food drying system and other industries.
