Air cooler bundles - Spare parts - Quiri
For air cooling installations, in order to transmit thermal energy from an internal fluid to the ambient air, air coolers are the appropriate solution. Quiri supplies replacement beams for chemical, refining or steel plants.

Technical specifications :

  The bundles operate on the principle of using atmospheric air as a cooling source. Installed mainly outdoors and in industrial environments, these tubular heat exchangers are exposed to climatic conditions and ambient air quality. The heat exchange takes place through the finned tubes, which can be attached, extruded, type G, L, KL or LL. The tubes can be made of carbon steel or stainless steel depending on the nature of the fluid to be cooled. The fins are generally made of aluminium, but can also be made of copper or steel with galvanization. Aluminium has the advantage of being light and not very sensitive to fouling. Galvanized steel offers a long service life. Whatever the type of boxes, with caps, welded, or dismountable, we make the batteries that will allow your installation to recover its original performances.
