Commonly referred to as air blast heat exchangers, this equipment uses either induced or forced draft air to cool media can be cost effective when cooling water is in short supply or the addition of piping to the area is cost prohibitive. They are commonly used as oil coolers or for keeping hydraulic fluid and fuel from reaching excess temperatures.
This design uses a very compact aluminium bar and plate design which achieves a very high level of performance and therefore an extremely compact footprint. Due to the construction it is only suitable for hydrocarbons like diesel fuel, oil and many hydraulic fluids.
The FanEX is built upon a more traditional finned tube design for heat transfer. The use of this technology makes more options for materials possible and nearly any fluid can be accommodated.
These coils are built with finned tubes and can be placed in any application where either natural convection is needed to dissipate heat or where cool fluids are used to cool hot gasses.
