A finned tube heat exchangers is a kind of heat exchanger design with the intention of uses plates and finned chambers to transfer heat between fluids. It is repeatedly categorized as a compact heat exchanger to emphasize its relatively high heat transfer surface area to volume ratio. Theplate-fin heat exchanger is widely used in many industries, including the aerospace industry for its compact size and lightweight properties, as well as in cryogenics where its ability to facilitate heat transfer with small temperature differences is utilized.

Application :

Originally conceived by an Italian mechanic, Paolo Fruncillo, a plate-fin heat exchanger is finished of layers of grooved sheets separated by flat metal plates, typically aluminum, to create a series of finned chambers. Separate hot and cold fluid streams flow through alternating layers of the heat exchanger and are enclosed at the edges by sidebars. Heat is transferred from one stream through the fin interface to the separator plate and through the next set of fins into the adjacent fluid. The fins also serve to increase the structural reliability of the heat exchanger and allow it to withstand high pressures while providing an extended surface area for heat transfer. A high degree of flexibility is present in plate-fin heat exchanger design as they can operate with any combination of gas, liquid, and two-phase fluids. Heat transfer between multiple process streams is also accommodated.

The cost of Finned tube heat exchangers is generally higher than conventional heat exchangers due to a higher level of detail required during manufacture. However, these costs can often be out weighed by the cost saving produced by the added heat transfer. Fin heat exchangers are generally applied in industries where the fluids have little chances of fouling. The delicate design as well as the thin channels in the fin heat exchanger make cleaning difficult or impossible.

Advantages :

  • High heat transfer efficiency especially in gas treatment
  • Larger heat transfer area
  • Approximately 5 times lighter in weight than that of shell and tube heat exchanger.
  • Able to withstand high pressure
