HIGH OUTPUT FINNED PIPE HEATING SYSTEM

FIN PIPE FOR UNDER THE BENCH, SIDE WALL AND OVERHEAD HEATING SYSTEM.
OUR ALUMINUM FIN PIPE DOMINATES THIS TYPE OF HEATING. THE FIN PIPE RADIATES
AND MORE EFFICIENTLY DISTRIBUTES HEAT BY RADIATION AND
HAS COMPLETELY REPLACED THE OLD STYLE HEATING SYSTEM.

FOR THOSE LOOKING FOR FIN TYPE HEATING FOR GREENHOUSE, WAREHOUSE OR
AGRICULTURAL BUILDING USE STATE OF THE ART

The DELTA-FIN™ aluminum finned pipe heating system heats the greenhouse using water temperatures up to 230°F by heating the air around the fin tube and distributing the heat via natural convection.

The high output finned pipe is made of sch 40 aluminum pipe and fins that are twice as thick as standard base board radiators. This heavy duty construction guarantees long life in a harsh environment and allows the material to be hung from greenhouse columns spaced as far as twelve feet apart without additional center support.

Placed around the perimeter or under the gutter, this material puts out enough energy to heat a greenhouse range, melt snow from the gutters, or can be used as supplemental heat when an under bench system is being used.

Two sizes (1.25" and 2.0") allow for various design considerations that might come up when designing long runs or small temperature differentials requiring high flow rates. Grooved coupling technology absorbs enough expansion from the heated aluminum pipe so that, in most installations, no special expansion joints are required. Special fin configurations can be provided for under gutter snow melt or corridor heating.

Typical fin spacing:

  • 1.25" 48 fins/ft
  • 2.0" 24 fins/ft

Some of the many advantages of DELTA FIN™ SF are:

  • Lightweight aluminum construction allows for hanging material from columns or truss without special supports.
  • Heavy duty fins able to withstand high traffic areas.
  • Rugged construction can be supported on 12 foot OC brackets.
  • Grooved coupling technology for easy installation.
  • Requires NO threading or welding.
  • Grooved coupling eliminates expansion joints.
  • High output per foot reduces need for multiple tiers.
  • Special fin spacing is available for optimum heat output.

Delta T Solutions can provide a performance engineered heating system that can meet the needs of any grower. Performance packages include: Heating system components (heat source, controls, radiation), performance engineered drawings (pipe layouts and electrical diagrams), installation supervision, installation (as required).
