TIG welding in manufacturing: advantages and tradeoffs

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.

I'm sick of replacing corroded coils. Should I consider all stainless?

Posted by Louis Rogerson on Jun 8, 2020 11:33:29 AM

Oftentimes, using stainless steel components seems like a simple solution to corrosion on coils. You may see fins or tubes or other parts of the system show signs of corrosion, and it seems that the best option is to change the coil to stainless steel, solving the corrosion problem permanently. While this seems like a simple solution to a significant problem in the HVAC, industrial, and commercial systems where coils are found, the answer to the question “should I make an all-stainless coil?” is far more complex.

Fin enhancements for plate fin heat exchangers: purposes and tradeoffs

Posted by Super Radiator Coils on Jun 8, 2020 11:11:15 AM

In plate fin heat exchangers, the fins themselves play a critical role. They provide the extended surface area needed to achieve effective heat transfer between a gas on the finside and a fluid on the tubeside.
