Finned tubes with gaps.

Gapped and integral fin 009

Creating gaps in a finned tube is a common request from our customers and we are more than happy to oblige. Here we have small gaps on a “L” finned tube. This enables long tubes to be supported with no damage to the fin. The fins have been folded and stapled in order to stop them unravelling.

Gapped and integral fin 005

This picture shows a much larger gap on a “G” finned tube. This enables the customer to get the tube bent after finning.The gaps are left ungrooved so the tube can be bent with no risk to the tube integrity.

We can gap tubes of all fin types and materials so if you are in need of gapped tubes please contact us with your requirements and we will produce them to your exact specification.
