Steam Heating Coils
Steam Heating Coils are fluid to air heat exchangers. Generally constructed from copper tubes mechanically expanded into aluminium plate fins with self spacing collars to ensure efficient heat transfer. HC Coils Steam Heating Coils are engineered with heavy gauge copper tubes and connection manifolds to withstand the normal operating stresses of a correctly installed steam system. It is important that Steam Heating Coils are installed in accordance with our Installation Instructions otherwise premature failure may occur due to ineffective condensate drainage, “steam hammer”, and thermal shock.
The Steam at a maximum pressure of 7 Bar G is induced into the tubes from the connection header manifolds The heat is transferred from the steam by cooling and the latent heart of condensation from the tubes to the air which flows over the fin and tube assembly.
Coils are constructed from Seamless Drawn Copper Tube to BS2871 mechanically expanded into aluminium fins with die formed self spacing collars. Tubular copper headers are silver brazed into the tube ends. Flow and return connections are BSP(M). The coil casing is formed from heavy gauge galvanised sheet steel to BS 2989 to make a rigid assembly. Tube end plates have die formed collared holes to allow expansion and contraction of the tubes without damage.
Polyester Coated Aluminium Fins are available to give protection in certain aggressive environments. Alternatively, Plain copper or tinned copper fins are available. For Positive Pressure or High Pressure Ducted Systems Boxed Ends should be specified to enclose headers and return bends and minimise air leakage. Brass or Stainless Steel Casings are also available.
Why Use HC Coils?
Build Quality With over 30 years of manufacturing experience, HC Coils have an industry leading reputation for quality construction. We are trusted by some of the world’s leading suppliers of Air conditioning and refrigeration equipment to deliver the highest quality products achievable.
Material Choice at HC coils we pride ourselves in sourcing raw materials from established European producers of Copper and Aluminium. Our quality control department makes sure we only buy the best materials on the market whilst also keeping our prices competitive for our customers.
Bespoke Design Everything we make is designed in house to the exact requirements of our customers. Coils are designed using our highly developed bespoke software to give the optimum coil selection to meet the precise duty requirements with ideal fluid pressure drop.
Lead Time We have made a significant investment into our plant and machinery here at our Gosport HQ and this enables us to optimise efficiency and provide the shortest lead times in the industry.
