Coil Company replacement coils are designed as an UPGRADE and improvement to the original manufacture’s heat exchangers, either Microchannel type or Fin/Tube type. While many OEM’s use foreign-made or “automotive” quality coils or thin wall fin/tube, Coil Company builds in long-life quality. The heat exchanger “Upgrade” feature is due to thicker tube walls, a more robust design to withstand thermal cycling, and E-Coating to assure long life corrosion protection.

Fins

Secondary surface (fins) are of the plate-fin design using aluminum or copper, with die-formed collars. The fin design is to be flat, waffle, or sine-wave in a staggered tube pattern to meet performance requirements. Fins are to be free of oils and oxidation. Collars will hold fin spacing at the specified density and cover the entire tube surface. Aluminum properties are to be Alloy 1100 per ASTM B209, O (soft) temper. Copper is to be Alloy 11000 per ASTM B152-06 with a soft (anneal) temper.

Casing

Coil casing material shall be of G90 galvanized steel, 16 gauge minimum. Heavier material, stainless steel, copper, or aluminum casings are to be provided as required. Intermediate tube supports are to be provided on all coils 50” and longer fin length. Coil casings on the top and bottom of coils are to have double-flange construction, allowing for vertical stacking of coils.

Tubes

Tubes and return bends shall be constructed from seamless UNS C12200 copper conforming to ASTM B224 and ASTM E527. Properties shall be O50 light annealed, with a maximum grain size of 0.040mm. Seamless tubes are to be mechanically expanded into plate fins to form an everlasting bond between primary and secondary surfaces.

Pressure Testing

Coils shall be tested at 550 psig using dry nitrogen, submerged underwater. Dual-operator verification shall determine that all coils are leak-free. Coils shall be certified to withstand 750 psig working pressures.

Connections

Evaporator coils shall be designed with brass liquid distributors (as required) and copper sweat suction connections. Distributors shall be capped using soft-solder for ease of cap removal; suction connections shall be capped.

Headers

Headers are to be constructed of seamless UNS C12200, Type L copper material sized to match specified connection size. Headers are to have finished integral spin-closed ends designed to withstand test pressure.
