At the heart of most Thermofin heat exchanger’s technology lies Thermofin’s aluminum extruded finned tubes, the lead actors on which rests the efficiency and longevity of our units. Their particular design, mono or bimetal, provides great resistance (fin stiffness) as well as exceptional heat transfer characteristics (longevity, temperature, range, etc.). The mechanical bond joining liner tubes and aluminum wall offers superior durability and insures no corrosion occurs between the fins and the tubes, a key factor in permitting the delivery of the specified duty by your heat exchanger. Extend the lifetime of your exchangers and improve their efficiency and reliability by combining them with the best technology, the POWERFIN extruded finned tubes.
Allowing access to the tubes internal surfaces, the ELECTRA exchangers are ideal for use with corrosive fluids or heavy fouling process. The tubes interior may then be cleaned periodically; insuring improved efficiency and longevity for your exchanger. In addition with the use of water boxes as inlet and outlet collectors, numerous thermal configurations are possible in order to always better optimize the heat exchange between the two fluids.
The bearing oil coolers allow cooling of the oil used in the guide and thrust bearings of the turbine and generator; oil which heats up due to the friction of the various moving parts. Thermofin has been able to establish itself as a market leader in the design and manufacture of bearing coolers. Whether the heat exchange needs to be forced or in natural convection, Thermofin holds profound understanding of the heat transfer mechanisms insuring adequate sizing and efficient cooling. The Thermofin team can also refurbish your bearing oil cooler for easy maintenance by changing the configuration (number of sections) of your cooler.
Critical part of electrical substations, the transformer oil cooler insures the integrity and increases the efficiency of the transformer unit. To meet these requirements, Thermofin starts by doing a highly specialized thermal design optimizing transformer oil cooling. Our reliable and heavy duty construction guarantees an extended lifetime and limits maintenance and shut down requirements. Lastly, Thermofin makes sure its transformer oil coolers have an irreproachable cleanliness, to insure the integrity of the transformer is never at risk of being compromised.
Gasketed plate and frame heat exchangers have the advantage of offering a small footprint and a flexible design, while still being very efficient in heat transfers. These advantages make the plate heat exchangers a perfect choice for a wide range of applications. Thanks to their excellent heat-transfer coefficients and their slim design, Thermofin’s gasketed plate heat exchangers have established themselves as an alternative to shell and tube heat exchangers in many fields. Thermofin reasserts its expertise as a manufacturer with the ITEX range, the result of long years of technical and thermal development during which nothing was left at random.
Thermofin’s range of industrial air cooled heat exchangers is meant to address the particular needs of applications featuring necessary atmospheric discharges. It is perfectly adapted to cooling industrial processes as varied as those of the energy sector, petrochemical plants, the environment industry, metal mills, pulp and paper industry, plastics plants, the agrobusiness and others. Its custom design is optimized to respond to the particular needs of your application.
The physico-chemical properties, the phases (liquid, gaseous or solid) and the corrosivity of the fluids involved in industrial processes are extremely varied. The heating or cooling of such fluids requires a flexible and efficient exchanger technology. The standardized exchangers cannot meet all the constraints present in these very particular processes. The Thermofin shell & tube heat exchangers are custom-made, thus integrating many specific features to perfectly meet your needs.
The ISTEAM exchanger was the first heat exchanger product designed by Thermofin. Over the years, its evolving design has benefited from Thermofin’s significant experience with thousands of installed units. The ISTEAM coil’s purpose is to transfer heat from steam. Steam, sometimes referred to as a “wild beast” by experienced boiler operators, can be unpredictable if all aspects of the heat exchanger, either thermal or mechanical, are not controlled properly. Accordingly, Thermofin is pleased to offer a wide range of specially designed steam heat exchangers, custom made to meet the exacting needs of your process.
ICOIL industrial heating or cooling coils are custom-made to meet your needs. Whether for new applications or replacement of existing heat exchangers, our team of designers will analyse your needs and will be able to offer you the best solution for your cooling or heating process.
At a time when we talk more and more about the environment and rationalization of energy use, thermal energy storage represents a technical solution adapted to industrial cooling and air conditioning systems. Office building cooling loads often peak at a level two or more times higher than the daily 24-h average load. Some industrial processes also have load peaks or “spikes”; that rise much higher than the average load. In addition, many electric utilities impose demand charges based on the customer’s highest power demand during on-peak hours and/or during the entire billing cycle. The STL is an ideal and efficient solution for these applications.
