Finned Tube Heat Exchanger Market: Overview
A heat exchanger is an instrument used to transfer heat between two or more mediums. Heat exchanger with fins and tubes is known as finned tube heat exchanger. It is used to transfer heat between air, gas, and liquid or steam. The finned tube heat exchanger consists of tube with extended surface area or fins to improve heat transfer rate from the additional area of fins.

The heat transfer coefficient of viscous fluid or gas cannot be enhanced much, the only substitute is to increase the area available for heat transfer on a specific side so that resistance to heat transfer can be reduced. Moreover, to conserve space and reduce cost of equipment, a type of heat exchanging surface known as extended surfaces have been established in which outside area of tube is increased by fins and other appendages.
The outside of fined tube heat exchanger consists of two sections: the area of bare tube, which is not covered by base of fins, and the area of fins. The area of fins is not as efficient as the bare tube area, due to the added resistance to heat flow by conduction through the fins at base.
The finned tube heat exchanger generally has set of fins attached to the tubes main body. The liquid flows through the tube and air or gas is passed outside the tube and the additional heat transfer surface area because of finned tube, increases the rate of heat transfer. Finned tube heat exchangers are used in power plants as an exhaust gas heat exchanger to increase efficiency. They are used for preheating and to condense steam.

The global finned tube heat exchanger market can be segmented based on type, application, end-user industry, and region. In terms of type, the finned tube heat exchanger market can be bifurcated into transverse fins and longitudinal fins. Transverse fins are commonly used for turbulent flows or gas flows and for cross flow type exchangers or shells and tube heat exchangers, mostly suited for air coolers. The transverse fin discs can be flat or tapered. The longitudinal fins are best applicable when the flow outside the tubes is likely to be streamlined besides the tube length. The cross sectional shape of longitudinal fins can be either tapered or flat.
