Fin Design

The component in most heat exchangers that drives the performance of the unit is the fin.  Over the years, the design of the fin has evolved considerably and now a variety of styles and types exist for a wide array of applications.  Having assisted in a significant amount of this development over the years, Livernois Engineering is uniquely placed to assist in your fin design projects.  We can assist with heat transfer surface criteria and more importantly we can provide significant input as to what can be efficiently manufactured and what might require more development to make it practical for manufacturing.

Fin Design For Heat Transfer

There are three major types of fins used for heat transfer applications.  These are roll formed, folded, and stamped.  Fortunately, with our sister companies, we are able to support the design and manufacturing of all of these fins as well as other unique profiles.  While Livernois Engineering specializes in roll-formed fin, Tridan International specializes in stamped fin and Innovative Automation specializes in folded fin.  Regardless of the requirements of your application, our Engineering Staff can support your fin requirements.
