4 Kinds of Tube-Side Coil Fouling & How to Prevent Them

Posted by Super Radiator Coils on Dec 9, 2020 9:51:22 AM

When designing a heat exchanger, an engineer should not only consider thermal performance, but also external influences that can negatively impact thermal performance, such as fouling.

Uses for Spiral-Wrapped vs. Industrial Plate Fin Heat Exchangers

Posted by Super Radiator Coils on Dec 1, 2020 8:24:42 AM

In the heat transfer universe, the term ‘coil’ is typically used to describe lighter duty heat exchangers used for various HVAC-R functions across a slew of industries. However, when the pressures, temperatures, and all-around harshness of an application and installation environment are ratcheted up, this equipment commonly falls under the ‘industrial heat exchanger’ umbrella.

3 Advantages of TIG Welding in Manufacturing

Posted by Ben Smith, CWI on Nov 11, 2020 9:36:34 AM

Gas-tungsten arc welding (GTAW), or more commonly, Tungsten Inert Gas welding (TIG), is a method of arc welding named for the non-consumable tungsten electrode used during the process. TIG welding isn’t the best option in some industries, but as coil manufacturers, it makes sense for us.

Factors That Limit a Coil's Thermal Capacity

Posted by Brian Elliott, P.E. on Oct 27, 2020 11:48:48 AM

My parents were fond of saying, “There is only so much meat on the bone.” No matter how hungry we children were, there was a limit as to what meat we could get from gnawing a bone. The same is true for coils. No matter how hard we wish for more, a coil can only transfer a limited amount of heat. Why is that?

In What Situations Would I Even Consider Retrofitting an R-22 System for R-410A?

Posted by Al Nord on Oct 12, 2020 12:00:14 PM

Today, most new air conditioning system components that would have used R-22 prior to its regulation are now designed to operate with R-410A. However, R-22 systems, such as commercial split systems for example, still exist. This means that when a coil reaches the end of its service life, the system engineer has a decision to make: replace the system or convert the existing equipment to operate on R-410A.

What is a Refrigerant Distributor and What Does it Do?

Posted by Ken Allen on Oct 5, 2020 12:17:44 PM

In a refrigeration circuit, the evaporator coil plays a critical role. Part of its responsibility is creating the controlled pressure drop necessary for the refrigerant to change phase, the bulk of which occurs via the system’s metering device, such as a thermostatic expansion valve (TXV).

Ethylene Glycol vs. Propylene Glycol: Differences & Uses

Posted by Will Klick, P.E. on Sep 28, 2020 3:35:57 PM

This article has been updated. It is accurate as of Feb. 8, 2022

For low-temperature hydronic systems, systems in which chillers and AHUs are located outdoors, or other equipment used in low-temperature processes, some form of glycol is a critical ingredient. It works to lower the fluid’s freezing temperature, enabling lower-temperature operation and preventing freezing.
