ES Plate Fin

Basco® Type ES Extended Surface Plate Fin Heat Exchangers

Our Type ES extended surface plate fin heat exchanger is the industry leader for intercooler and aftercooler performance. Its unique patented compact plate fin design provides superior cooling of large air volumes at low pressure drops which means less energy consumption.

Performance notes.

  • Compact package delivers max heat transfer in a minimum space
  • Tubes are continuously supported over the entire length by the plate fins, providing a vibration-free design
  • Continuous silicone rubber seals at the top and bottom of the tube bundle prevent any mixing of inlet and outlet gas
  • Integrated moisture separation removes need for an external device
  • Tubes are easily accessed for inspection and cleaning
  • Type HF heat exchangers are also available and feature high fin tubes, more tube diameter and material options, and higher shell-side operating pressures
