Services: Milder services such as air coolers and enclosure heaters.  We recommend an operating temperatures limit of 250F (121C).

Production: Fin strip is continuously uncoiled and wrapped tightly around the tube as shown in cross section above. High tension during the wrapping process seats the fin base securely, providing excellent metal to metal contact for efficient heat transmission. Machinery is high speed and fully automated for maximum economy.

Advantages: The primary advantages of this fin type are various dissimilar metals can be combined, low cost, and rapid delivery.
