The big issue at the moment is the rice of the material prices and availability of the raw materials in the market. For the production of the finned tubes, the same situation occurs for the base tubes and the aluminium. This is leading to higher prices and longer delivery times, which most of the time is not possible with the tight production planning for the Air-cooled Heat Exchangers, especially when the bundles need to be replaced during maintenance stops at refineries.
Airco-Fin has solution for this, because Airco-Fin is keeping large stock of the base tubes and the finning material.
For the carbon steel tubes Airco-Fin is keeping in stock multiple certified materials in most common sizes. Quality of material is ASTM A179 / ASME SA179 / P235GH TC1 According EN10216-2 with additional specs AD2000 W4 and NACE MR0175.
For the aluminium finning Airco-Fin is keeping in stock ASTM B209 / ASME SB209 alloy 1060 or alloy 1050 (99,5%).
This large stock enables Airco-Fin to start the production very quick on one of our machine. With our large production capacity of applied and extruded finning, it is easy to start production within few days and deliver according to plan.
So, feel free to contact us for your enquiries. And we will find the most efficient way for producing the tubes within the requested time.
