Technical & Features

FINNED PACK

The finned pack consists of drawn tubes mechanically expanded into fins provided with self-spaced collars. This ensures optimal heat exchange between tubes & fins, plus regular spacing between fins.

FINS

Created by high precision molding of aluminium, pre-painted aluminium, hydrophilic aluminium and copper strips. The fins are corrugated so as to improve the secondary heat transfer coefficient without heavily affecting the air pressure drops. This allows for improved condensate drainage & prevents dirt from obstructing the finned pack. Also available are louvered fins, the structure of which increases heat exchange efficiency

TUBES

We only use high quality tubes sourced within Europe, which can be smooth or internally grooved on all diameters. The tubes are resistant to the vast majority of primary fluids in both heating and cooling applications alike.

FRAME

The frame can be of galvanized steel, aluminium, copper, brass, or stainless steel, manufactured through a process of punching and deep drawing. The frame protects the finned pack and fastens the heat exchanger to the rest of the system.

HEADERS

Headers are made of carbon steel or copper drawn tubes. The header collects all of the coil’s parallel circuits into one tube that will be connected to the main circuit of the equipment.

DISTRIBUTORS

We use brass Venturi-type distributors. Along with the brazed copper capillary tubes, these distributors optimize coolant distribution in the parallel circuits of evaporators.

REFRIGERANTS

In light of our commitment to product improvement & sustainability, 4D Coils uses materials that are compatible with new generation refrigerants, which ensure lower environmental impact and excellent performance.

QUALITY

We inspect for proper mechanical expansion of tubes into the fins; brazing of bends, connections & headers in an inert atmosphere; final pressure leak test in a water bath. During final inspection, the coil is checked against the customer’s specifications to ascertain its compliance.

SURFACE TREATMENTS

As the market is becoming more and more demanding in the field of coils protections against corrosion, 4D Coils has developed a strong ability in selection, quotation and supply of different types of coils protections, in order to respond to customers requirements, including (but not limited to) the following:
❖ Heresite
❖ Heresite + UV
❖ Epoxy painting – Pulver
❖ Epoxy painting – Cataphoresis
❖ Epoxy painting – Cataphoresis + UV
❖ Electrofin

Material Flexibilty

4D Heat Exchanger Coils are highly customisable to suit your specifications or application. Each coil is individually designed, with the fin material selected to take into account the environment in which it is to be located.

Tube material, diameter and wall thickness is selected with the medium, temperature and refrigerant or working pressure in mind and to customers specifications. Casing material can be galvanised or stainless steel to suit harsher operating environments.
