RIGID TURBULATORS GENERALLY
USED IN WIRE WOUND FIN TUBES.
In this type of a turbulator,Wire Fins are soldered to a solid center rod.
The turbulator is then soldered to the inner surface of the tubes. These
“Turbulated Tubes” then can be finned on the outside using any desired
type of fins like Wire Wound, Crimped, L, LL, KL etc. Needless to say the
soldering of the turbulator and the tubes provides a superior bond giving
in turn a larger tube side heat transfer area in addition to turbulation.
These Turbulators increase the overall heat transfer co-efficient of the
Tubes.They are highly efficient in cooling oil at High pressure which
substantially reduces the overall length of the cooler.
