Kinam Engineering Industries, a family-owned business established in 1981. They are the leading manufacturers for Corrugated Tube Heat Exchangers.
Corrugated Tube Heat Exchanger
Corrugations are produced by indenting the tube along the length in a helical pattern with the use of a special-purpose machine designed for corrugation of the tube without thinning of wall or development of stresses in the tube.
The helical pattern of the corrugations and the optimal depth of the indentation causes a two regime flow in the tube side fluid, spiral at core and eddies at the periphery creating turbulence even at a lower velocity of fluid resulting in a higher Heat Transfer Coefficient.
