For the reasons described above, in the past years different types and shapes of tubes for heat exchangers have been developed, starting from the simple tube to the corrugated pipe, threaded, with integral or recessed flap, with external or internal fins, double-wall pipes and with various combinations, but all with the same objective that is to achieve the best performances in terms of:
2Efficiency over time
3Resistance to corrosion
4Reduction of production and maintenance costs
Until recently the Pantani Group, like other manufacturers in the world has contributed with its customers to develop solutions to improve the geometry of the tube, in a largely empirical manner, based on its decades of experience but without dedicated IT support, because, whilst there are various types of commercial software for the study and sizing of heat exchangers, there is no specific computation software to dimension the pipes.
