Hot Water Booster Coils

Corrosion in Tube

There are many reasons why hot water coils in your system can under-perform. Some reasons are from the time of the design, and many other instances can also occur after the coils have been installed. Here are 10 common reasons why hot water heating coils can fail:   Air stratification issues - The air flow across the surface of the coil is not being evenly...

Hot Water Coil

Water Cooling and Heating Coils   Water is the most widely used heat transfer medium because it’s readily available and low in cost. Water can be used as a heat transfer medium if the temperature range is between 15 degrees Fahrenheit (when mixed with glycol) when cooling and a high of 210 degrees Fahrenheit when heating.   Chilled Water Coils   When maintaining an acceptable living or working condition in...

Replacement Coils

Coil replacement has been a part of the HVAC aftermarket for as long as finned tube coils have been used to create heat transfer. The coils installed in the 50’s and 60’s were heavier duty than today’s coils and were almost always spiral fin type with a tension wound fin onto copper tubes.  The plate fin didn’t become prevalent until the mid-60’s. By the end...

Plugged Coil

  Replacing heat exchanger coils was adapted ever since the beginning of the HVAC and processing/cooling era. It’s now close to 90 years since the first finned tube heat exchangers appeared on the market in the early 1900’s. The coil has undergone drastic changes over the years, from the spiral wound type to the plate fin coils that currently dominate the market. Throughout each decade, the...

Hot Water Coils

If you’re in the HVAC industry, then you’ve been involved in projects and installations that have duct mounted booster heating coils. How did the term “booster” originate? Most heating coil applications have a main heating coil that takes air from the lowest entering air temperature to an intermediate air temperature. Each individual space has its own heat load, and the duct mounted booster coil is...
