Finned heaters are constructed using tubular element as the basis of construction. Fin material is continuously spiral wound tightly onto the element surface to increase the convective surface area for air and non-corrosive gas heating. Fin spacing and size have been tested and selected to optimize performance. Steel finned units are then furnace brazed, bonding the fins to the sheath to increase conductive efficiency. This allows higher wattage levels to be achieved in the same flow area and produces lower sheath temperatures prolonging heater life.
Features of finned tubular heater:
Brazed, crimped or welded to the element’s cold section.
Used as a tight joint to the heater, which is fixed in open tanks or vessels.
Supplied in brass, steel, or stainless steel.
Available in nickel-plated brass for field installation on elements of 0.375”, 0.430”,
0.475” elements diameter.
Easy to install
Configurable to virtually any shape
Precise and easy control of heat output
Easy to maintain
Easy to replace thus eliminating long shut-down periods
