The wide choice of material, patterns and accessories, together with the high flexibility of its production, allows FACO to design and manufacture custom made products for all applications and fora broad selection of fluids: water, glycol, steam, ammonia, other refrigerant fluids, hydrocarbons, technical gases, etc.
It is composed of tubes mechanically expanded into self-spacing collars die-formed on the fins, which have a waved profile studied in FACO’s thermo-dynamic research laboratory, with the aim at the efficiency of the heat exchanger to get the best cost/performance ratio.
Materials, arrangement and connection side can be combined according to customer request. Connections are equipped with standard joints such as flanges or threads, or any other type of special connection if required. Drain and vent plugs are supplied as standard. Materials: carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, cupronickel, aluminium.
Sized according to the dimensions specified by the client, it can be delivered with integrated drip trays and drop eliminators. Closing plates and special profiles can be supplied for a better integration of the heat exchanger in the plant.
Materials: galvanized steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper.
Installed or integrated in the lower part of the exchangers, or even at an intermediate height, they are available for duct mounting or for installation inside units. The position of the condensate drain connections can be defined according to customer request. They are available also in an airtight version, for duct mounting. Materials: galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper..
Installed to avoid condensate carry-over in case of high speed of air in connection with dehumidification, they can be supplied in various materials according to working conditions.
Materials: PPTV, aluminium, stainless steel.
When it is necessary to isolate the flow through the fins from the external ambient, solutions with various grades of tightness can be adopted, that range from a simple sealing of the passages connecting the duct with the ambient, to a fully welded airtight construction.
In refrigeration treatments or wherever frost formation on the finned block is foreseen, the exchanger can be equipped with defrosting systems such as electrical heating rods and hot water rain or spray devices; evaporators can be delivered with a hot gas defrosting system.
PROTECTIVE TREATMENTSParticular environmental and operational conditions may require stronger protection both for the exchange surfaces and the structures. The right combination of base material and coating can guarantee the exchanger’s reliability and longevity, even in aggressive environments. Surface treatments: tinning - polyurethane paint - hot dip galvanizing - cataphoresis - Heresite® - Rilsan®.
