Integral Low Fin tubing is kind of single metal fin tube, which is a type of extruded tubing that consists of small low fins. The low fin tube is very similar to the extruded "high fin" types but these tubes have the same diameter as the base tube. Low Fin Enhanced tubes can be used in standard shell and tube baffles and tube sheets. The primary advantage for the low fin tube is providing surface enhancement and better heat transfer over smooth tubing.

Low finned tubes have been successfully used for controlling the temperature of gases and liquids or for evaporating and condensing refrigerants. As mentioned before, due to their enlarged heat transfer surfaces, they provide a considerable potential for savings by reducing the tube length that is needed to achieve the required performance of the unit.

Integrally finned tubes by low Finning / Integral fin tube: type low fin:

Integral low fin tube for use in situations where extended surface is required, but lack of space or heat exchanger type dictates otherwise.
Typical material, Admiralty Brass Tubing, Copper Tubing, Copper Nickel Tubing, Stainless Tubing, Carbon Alloy Tubing, Aluminum Brass Tubing stainless steel (304L, 316L, 321(H), 304H, 310, …), duplex, copper alloys, nickel alloys, hastelloy and titanium
Integral Low Fin Tube has the advantage that it can improve the thermal performance of a heat exchanger without the necessity for changing shell size, flow arrangement or the repositioning of piping.

The external surface of the tube is increased by the formation of low fins by direct extrusion from the material of the base tube.
Size range / Dimensions:
- Tube size: 12,7mm, 15,88mm, 19,05mm and 25,4mm
-Fins per inch: 16, 19, 26, 28, 30, 32, 36, 40 and 43 fins/inch dependant on material

3) Tube thickness or thickness required under root of fin
4) Length of finned tube
5) Number of fins per inch
6) Unfinned ends
7) Skipped portions and dimensions from one end
8) Material of tube
