ELFIN finned tubes, named after its ‘L’ profile, are manufactured using precise pre-programmed machines that automatically and mechanically bond just about any type of fin material onto just about any type of tube material by providing an interference fit that results in a product with far greater life cycle and performance than alternative methods. The ELFIN system, while allowing for variable fin spacing, does not compromise tube thickness and works with most materials.
Fluid Dynamics has manufactured and supplied many ELFIN tube heat exchangers particularly to Power Stations and the Marine industry who demand the highest quality units built to last decades.
Variable Fin spacing is accurately achieved by a CNC operated system down to micron tolerances and provides the best solution to account for the condition of the air passing over. The rigidity of the ELFIN finned tube also means it can be robustly cleaned without suffering damage.
