Tubeline Technical Services offers Hundt & Weber copper water-cooled elements. Cooling efficiency increase around 30% is claimed, with direct 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, but 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.
