TUBELINE Technical Services now supply Hundt & Weber copper water-cooled elements. Cooling efficiency increase of 30% is claimed - with corresponding increase in furnace life.
Contact between cast-in copper pipe and surrounding copper casting is greatly improved by a special patented coating applied to the pipe.
Traditionally, bond integrity problems resulted in uneven heat transfer -the patented "MC-Casting" process overcomes this with no identifiable "bond zone".
Physical features of the pipe and the surrounding casting are identical, as evidenced by scanning electron microscopy.
In addition to cooling elements; copper launders, tapping blocks, etc., are supplied "MC-Cast"; providing the same technical advantages.
