Tube Finning Capabilities

The finning of the heat transfer tubes is a proprietary process that was developed by IST. This unique method, of brazing fins to the tubes, promotes effective heat transfer and reduces corrosion effects. The current capabilities of our finning process are as follows:

Outside Tube Diameter: 0.75″ to 1.50″

Tube Thickness: Our current minimum thickness is 0.049 ” MW

Tube Length: Up to 675″ long

Finished fin height: 0.250″ to 0.775″

Welded Finning of pipe is also available in 1” to 4” dia, sch 40 to 120
