Welded fin tubes are used in a variety of applications for heat transfer applications, such as Economizers, Air Pre-Heaters, Fired Heaters, etc. These tubes consist of a base tube with fins attached to its outer surface, which increases the surface area and improves heat transfer efficiency. Traditionally the continuous welded finned tubes were manufactured by the HFIW process. However, in recent years, Laser Welding has emerged as a superior method for producing high-quality welded fin tubes.
So, how does Laser Welding improve the quality and service life of welded fin tubes? Let’s take a closer look at some of the advantages:
Laser Welding allows for precise control of the heat input, which minimizes distortion and reduces the risk of weld defects. This precision ensures that the fins are welded securely to the base tube, creating a strong bond that can withstand thermal cycling and mechanical stresses.
Elimination of heat-affected zones:
Traditional welding methods often produce heat-affected zones (HAZs) around the weld area. These zones can weaken the material and make it susceptible to corrosion and cracking. With Laser Welding, the heat input is localized, which eliminates the HAZs and produces a clean, consistent weld.
Laser Welding produces less heat input compared to traditional welding methods, which reduces the risk of distortion in the base tube and fins. This means that welded fin tubes produced with Laser Welding maintain their original shape and dimensions, even after repeated thermal cycling.
Increased production speed:
Laser Welding is a fast and efficient process, which means that it can significantly increase production speed compared to traditional welding methods. This can be especially beneficial for large-scale production runs, where time is a critical factor.
Overall, Laser Welding offers significant advantages over traditional welding methods.
