Unique Internal, Spiraled Fins

Our revolutionary, Internally-Finned tubes deliver the same long life and superior heat transfer capability as our Straight-Wall tubes, they literally pay for themselves. By simultaneously stirring the gas flame and increasing the inside surface area to capture more heat, these finned tubes reduce fuel consumption by approximately 10%.

Only INEX offers a radiant tube with internally-spiraled fins capable of operating at temperatures to 2450°F (1340°C).

Proven Cost Savings

INEX conducted a yearlong test in a pusher furnace. On a conservative basis, the results showed a 10.4% metered fuel savings. Rated at 600,000 BTUs per hour, the furnace was operated at high fire approximately 60% of the available time. A savings of over 300,000 cubic feet of gas resulted in an annual savings exceeding $1,220. Use your own figures and see the savings INEX Finned Tubes can deliver for you!
