For compact and efficient shell-and-tube heat exchangers For compact and efficient shell-and-tube heat exchangers

Optimised heat transfer for your shell-and-tube heat exchanger

The enhanced surface tubes made by Wieland Thermal Solutions have been optimized for use as condenser or evaporator tubes in shell-and-tube heat exchangers used in the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry. These can be designed to be much more compact, saving you energy, installation space, and materials.

GEWA-C and Turbo-C condenser tubes

Thanks to their functional surface enhancements , the outsides of the GEWA-C and Turbo-C tubes offer optimal drainage performance for condensed refrigerants. Coupled with an ideally matched inner tube surface, optimum heat transfer coefficients can be achieved.
