Wire turbulators boost heat exchange efficiency

15 February 2013

Ormiston Wire has launched a range of wire turbulators for heat exchanger tubes that significantly cut the cost and size of exchangers while also improving performance.

These benefits are achieved through the specialist looped-spiral design devised by Ormiston Wire, which has worked in this sector since 1968.

The key to these enhancements is the density of the wire turbulators, which can be varied to suit the flow of liquid or gas. Because optimising the density maximises excitation and heat transfer coefficient with a minimum loss of pressure, system designers can reduce the length, diameter and/or number of tubes required per unit, while flow pumps can also be kept to a minimum size.

These savings in cost and component size, coupled with the specialist looped-spiral design, enable greater efficiency and enhanced performance.

Ormiston’s Wire Turbulators can be supplied in a range of metals to suit the application, with current production runs including galvanized mild steel, stainless steel, copper and monel metal.

Components are also available in a range of sizes; turbulators can be supplied at lengths from 150mm to 3,000mm and these can be easily connected to achieve longer lengths, while diameter can be varied to suit any tube from 6.35mm up to 32mm.
