Steam coils are coils that use steam to heat air. The steam enters as a gas and condenses to a liquid inside the tubes, giving off the heat to the air. This is a very common way of heating air because there is often a central utility producing steam that is distributed around the manufacturing or processing facility.
Common Materials Used For Steam Coils
- Low pressure/Light duty: copper tubes with aluminum fins
- Heavy duty: stainless tubes with aluminum fins (aluminum fins provide 3x’s the heat transfer as stainless steel fins).
There are additional options to be used with steam coils, however, they have their disadvantages in high temperature or high corrosion environments. Advanced Coil specializes in providing the expertise and knowledge required to guarantee a 5-year warranty.
