Overhead Gas Air Fin Coolers
10 bundles with 492 carbon steel finned tubes each
1” O.D. x 16 BWG (0.065” Avg. wall) x 60’ long
400 new carbon steel finned tubes had frozen and split soon after the construction of the plant.
The installation of 400 thin-walled (0.028”) CTI Full Length Tube Liners™ constructed from 304 Stainless Steel allowed them to reclaim lost efficiency. Retubing only the leaking tubes was not an option due to the randomness of their locations. The 62 foot long Liners were installed in 5 days working through the header box plug holes.
