Finned radiant tubes

Open tube systems have been used for many decades, primarily for tempering furnaces. The recuperative burner systems, however, are relatively new.

AVION finned radiant tubes offer a larger surface area considerably improving their heat efficiency and distribution.

Because the fins are thread-shaped, an optimum flame distribution from the burner tip to the tube exit is achieved.


Further advantages of Si / SiC radiant tubes are:

  • durability and reliability at temperatures up to  2450°F / 1350°C
  • outstanding resistance against: thermal shock, overheating, oxidization, carburizing, creep elongation, corrosive atmospheres, vibration, magnetizing, residues of detergents


heat flow: 125 BTU/in² / 7800 kWh/cm²
