Copper Tubing Straightener And End Forming

Copper Tubing Straightener And End Forming

Copper tubing is a versatile tubing which has many uses. One of the main uses is in plumbing for supplying hot and cold water.  Also, Copper tubing is used with gas lines as well. These are just a few examples of how it used, but copper tubing is also a huge part of HVAC systems. The most common type of this tubing is soft copper and rigid copper.  Soft copper is also known as ductile, it easy to move and bend and is best for flare connections.

Rigid copper is usually used for water lines. As you may have guessed, rigid copper cannot be bent and uses elbow fittings to position around corners. Out of the two types, the soft copper is usually used in HVAC systems.  To straighten the copper tubing you need a tube straightener to do that and that is where Tridan comes in!

Straightening Copper Tubing

When it comes to straightening tubes, Tridan has an extensive line-up of machines to choose from. Our tube straighteners are the STMBC, STMC, STQC-4W, and the STVC.

Texas Fin Production

Fin Production for HVAC SystemsBeing in Texas is great! There is a city for every personality, Texas has no state income tax, and the weather is always warm! There is a well-known expression about the state, “Everything’s bigger in Texas!” this also applies to the state’s bigger need for a good HVAC system. Having an HVAC in Texas is essential, otherwise it’ll be extremely painful because the weather never stops being hot!

What is Fin Production?

Fin production is crucial to the functions of an HVAC. There are several types of fins used in HVAC systems. Examples include condenser and evaporator fins, both of which allows air to flow smoothly through the machine.

Furthermore, compressor fins are located on the outer portion of an HVAC. It looks like a grill with metal fins throughout it. These condenser fins assist heat in moving away from the HVAC so the heat disperses more quickly.

And evaporator fins are located on the evaporator. As it extracts heat from the air, the fins help the thermal energy exchange process. Air is blown over the fins where it is cooled before being sent from the HVAC through the vents and into the various rooms.

Each type of fin is important in an HVAC system. Without even one type of fin, the HVAC could face serious damage. It could malfunction, clog, or even overheat. Here at Tridan, we know that so we only sell the best machinery for your best interests. Products made with our machines last.

At Tridan International we have fin production machines for all types of work volume. In addition, we have machines that can handle low-volume production, medium-volume production, and high-volume production.

Building A Commercial HVAC System

Commercial HVAC System

There are different types of HVAC commercial systems to choose from. Commercial HVAC System can be of different varieties such as heat pumps, roof top units, chillers, and heaters. Heat pumps extract heat from water or air. A roof top unit are on the roof and use ducts to provide condition air to the rooms. Chillers generate cold water distributed to air cooling coils. Heaters are usually known as hot air furnaces they burn fuel to heat the air.

No matter what type of HVAC system you are trying to build you will need quality parts to achieve your goal. The HVAC system of building is crucial in providing a comfortable environment for the people inside. In addition, a proper HVAC system controls the air temperature in the building but is also responsible for intake of outside air, exhaust of used air, and properly using energy.

Commercial HVAC System Basics

Every HVAC system needs to provide basic functions. The heat needs to always transfer warmer to cooler. You should also consider the control of moist air in the system. Also, take the energy usage into consideration, for example one ton of cooling is equal to about 12,000 btu/hour. Also, when designing and building your HVAC system, you need to determine what kind of zone it will control.

A single-zone system would be controlled by one thermostat. Where a multi-zone systems can have there own spaces with their own thermostat. When building your system parts such as coils, you should use Tridan equipment. At Tridan we specialize in equipment for creating fins and coils for you HVAC System. We have all the equipment you need to fully fabricate and create your HVAC system.

At Tridan International, we have equipment that can handle fin production, tube fabrication, coil expansion, header production and end forming. Finally, contact us today and see what Tridan can do for you!
