For the Extruded fins; these are designed to provide you with complete protection, incorporating a robust design that’s made to last. The Extruded finned tubes are ideal for high-temperature applications, offering resistance up to 350°c.

Wrapped fins.

Finned tubes are used for applications of high conductivity, the Extruded fin is wrapped around the tube and secured at either end, providing surface protection.

If you’re looking for tubes that are suitable for moderate temperature cooling, you needn’t look any further than the Wrapped fins USEL Tubular Division supply!

Overlapped fins.

Like the wrapped fins, these are secured at both ends, however, the Overlapped fins include an overlapping foot. These heat exchanger tubes are less likely to withstand high temperatures like the extruded fins and the wrapped fins.

Embedded fins.

Knurled L fins.
