Finned tubes

 

Optimized surfaces for a highly efficient heat transfer

 

Finned tubes made by Wieland Thermal Solutions are produced from plain tubes that have undergone a forming process. They serve as components in highly efficient, compact, yet extremely stable heat exchangers. Tube surfaces are optimized to the specific heat transfer requirement of the application. With a great variety of materials we ensure to use the material best suited to the specific needs, for example concerning durability and formability.

Low-finned tubes

For extreme efficiency in a variety of applications


Low-finned tubes are a reliable solution for controlling the temperature of gases and liquids, or for evaporating and condensing refrigerants. Thanks to their larger heat transfer surface area, they offer considerable potential to save in terms of materials and fill volumes. The wide range of dimensions offered by Wieland Thermal Solutions makes these products perfect for a broad scope of applications in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry, for oil/gas coolers in machinery and plant engineering, and for intermediate vapor superheaters in process engineering.

 

Your advantages at a glance

  • Proven solution in a wide range of applications
  • Increased heat transfer surface compared to plain tubes
  • Material savings due to reduced tube length
  • Filling quantity reduction due to higher efficiency

 

Product types

GEWA-K tubes offer a greater outer surface area compared to plain tubes. This is ideal for scenarios where the heat transfer surface coefficients vary significantly between the shell tube and the inner tube.

 

Our Materials

We offer you a broad portfolio of materials and can expand our offering at any time to meet your specific needs regarding thermal conductivity, mechanical properties, or corrosion resistance. Low-finned tubes made by Wieland Thermal Solutions are already available in copper, copper-nickel, brass, carbon steel, stainless steel, and titanium.
