How Twisted Tape Turbulators Work

Twisted Tape Turbulators are an economical means of enhancing heat transfer in new and existing equipment. It is common knowledge that enhancement is achieved by inducing a swirling and mixing action of tubeside fluid causing higher near wall velocities which eliminates thermal boundary layer and the corresponding insulating effect. Using state of the art, high speed equipment our seasoned staff fabricate to your specification.

Function: Improve heat transfer efficiency in tubular heat exchange equipment

Materials: Typically Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel or Copper. If we can source the alloy, we can fabricate it.

Maximum Temperature:  Dependent upon material choice

Width: .150” – 4” – For larger tubes, multiple band options available

Length: Limited ONLY by shipping feasibility

Additional Services: JIT (Just In Time) Delivery; Fuel Efficiency will manufacture and warehouse for next day shipment

Typical Lead Time: 2-3 Weeks, depending upon material availability and production schedule
