Fin tube boilers represent one of a number of pressurized equipment options used to heat water or convert water into steam under controlled conditions. As in a water tube boiler, water passes through boiler tubes while combustion gases remain in the shell side, passing over the tube surfaces. Unlike conventional water tube boilers, however, the tubes in a fin tube boiler are fitted with fins, increasing the area available to transfer heat.
Fin tube boilers provide primarily residential and commercial hot water for domestic hot water as well as space heating needs.
III Equipment Options
Fin tube boilers are available both as packaged and custom-fabricated hot water and steam generators.
