Star inserts promote in-tube heat transfer enhancement by the following mechanisms:
- Reduced flow area increases velocity and coefficient,
- Cross section breaks the circular flow pattern issues found in laminar flows,
- Provides internal surface area increase with tube inside diameter contact.
A sample of our star insert capabilities follow:
Four point fabricated titanium for 5/8" [15.88] OD x 0.035" [0.89] wall.
Five point extruded aluminum for 3/4" [19.05] OD x 0.049" [1.24] wall.
Fourteen point extruded aluminum for 5/8" [15.88] OD x 0.035" [0.89] wall.
