Solitaire Overseas manufactures, supplies, stock’s and exports all kinds of Finned Tubes, new and spare, to clients located all over the globe. Our tubes can be procured in any shape, no matter what kind of brand the installed base might be. We are one of the leading fin tubes manufacturers in India and these tubes of ours are used whenever there is a critical heat transfer coefficient disparity, between the fluid circulating outside of the tubes and the fluid present within the tubes.
Spiral wound finned tubes are in big demand all over the world today. And the reason for this is that these welded fin tubes are in big demand for the production of furnaces, condensers, coolers and heat exchangers. Another reason is because when these tubes are used, the thermal efficiency greatly increases and as such there is a great savings made by way of costs. Also, when finned aluminum tubing is used, the heat transfer surface increases and because of this, a lesser number of tubes are needed, as compared to that of exchangers with bare tubes.
The use of these tubes is done in applications that involve heat transfer taking place through a tube wall, from a hot fluid to a fluid that is colder. The concept behind the use of tubes such as spiral fin tube or similar other kinds of tubes such as micro fin tube, is to increase the tube’s outer surface area.
Embedded fin tube and various similar kinds of tubes such as the likes of extruded aluminum fin tube, are used in various applications and industries such as the likes of:
- Vertical Vaporizers
- Waste heat recovery boilers
- Suction Heaters
- Air Coolers
- Hairpin Heat Exchangers
- Tank Heaters
- Air Heaters
- Economizers, etc.
When the outer surface area of aluminium finned tubes, is increased, the heat transfer rate is thus increased overall. Due to this, the total number of tubes that is required for a given application or process, is reduced. And because of this, the overall size of the equipment, as well as the overall cost of the project, is greatly reduced. In many cases, by using just a singular finned tube, six or even more bare tubes can be replaced, at less than 1/4th the volume and 1/3rd the cost.
Finned tube bundle are used a lot in air-cooled exchangers, as this kind of tubing is great in compensating for low air-side heat-transfer coefficient. Almost all of the applications that are used in the oil and gas industry, call for heat transfer taking place from hot fluid to cold fluid and this calls for a relevant medium to be used. And this is where Longitudinal Finned Tubes come in, as these types of tubes are used for the transfer of heat.
Integral Finned Tubes are also used for various other kinds of applications such as printing machines, food industry, chemical industry, textile production, cooling of turbine air intakes, coils for hybrid cooling towers, tanneries, solvent recovery, plastic molding industry, wood industry, anti-freeze coils for process air, production of surface coatings, greenhouses and breeding, paper works, etc.
There are various benefits to using helical finned tube and these are:
- Improving the heat transfer coefficient: Longitudinal Finned Tubes help greatly in increasing the outer surface area, which is larger than the inner surface area.
- Cost saving: Using High & Low finned tubes saves money.
- Lessens workload: When such Aluminium Finned Tubing is used, the workload is vastly reduced.
- Reduces number of tubes required: When Carbon Steel Finned Tubing is used, the number of tubes required for the project are lowered.
Reduction in the size of equipment: As a result of the use of Internally Finned Tubes, in the long run, the overall size of the equipment is reduced.
At Solitaire Overseas, we run our Finned Tubing through the most rigid quality tests, this is to ensure that these tubes meet international and national quality standards and specifications. It is only after these tubes have passed these stringent tests, that we deliver them to our clients. Some of these quality tests are: Intergranular Corrosion Test, Spectro Analysis, Micro and MacroTest, Hardness Test, Flaring Test, PMI Testing, Pitting Resistance Test, Flattening Test, etc.
We provide our clients with Material Test Certificates (MTC) as per EN 10204 3.1 and EN 10204 3.2, as well as Test Certificates certifying NACE MR0103 and NACE MR0175. We also supply our clients with standard documentation such as: Heat Treatment Charts, Raw Material Test Reports, Guarantee Letter, Commercial Invoice (inclusive of HS Code), Fumigation Certificates, Quality Assurance Plan, Certificate of Origin, Material Traceability Records, Packing List (inclusive of number of boxes, numbers and marks, gross weight, net weight, etc).
