Why 2205 Stainless Steel Strip Is Used In Finned Tube?

2205 stainless steel strip is one of the major duplex strip materials for finned tube production. If you are the beginner of this area, you can benefit from this guide.

By the end of this blog, you will have full understanding on all aspects of duplex 2205 stainless steel strip for finned tubes.

Let’s keep reading.

Stainless steel finned tube is the main part in many heat exchanger devices, and its working principle is to use refrigerant to cool air or heat medium to heat air.

A finned tube heat exchanger will typically have tubes with fins attached to the outside of them.

The stainless steel finned tube achieves the purpose of strengthening heat transfer by adding fins to the ordinary base tube, and can have the heating effect.

When heating is needed, it can use high temperature water, steam or high temperature heat transfer oil to heat the air. When cooling is required, it can use low-temperature water, such as chilled water, to cool the air.


In other words, stainless steel finned tubes use their “fins” to increase the surface area against which the outside fluid comes in contact. The tube then exchanges the heat between the fluid inside the tube and the fluid outside of the tube.

What Are The Stainless Steel Finned Tube Applications?


The stainless steel finned tubes are widely used in a variety of home applications and industry heat exchangers.

An air heat exchanger like the evaporator coil for an air conditioning unit is typically a fin tube heat exchanger.

Another common fin tube air heat exchanger is the car radiator.

The function of the car radiator is to cool the hot water in the tubes with the air passing through in crossflow. The air conditioner evaporator coil has the purpose of cooling the air passing through it.

A fin tube heat exchanger can be used as an industrial heat exchanger also.

An application that has seen widespread expansion recently is ‘dry cooling’ for steam power plants.

This consists of using an air cooled condenser instead of a water cooled condenser.

Why Use 2205 Stainless Steel Strip For Finned Tube?

2205 stainless steel strip is a particularly great choice when it comes to the manufacturing of high quality stainless steel finned tubes.

2205 stainless steel strip is a duplex stainless steel strip composed of 22% chromium, 2.5% molybdenum and 4.5% nickel-nitrogen alloy.

It has high strength, good impact toughness and good overall and local stress corrosion resistance. The yield strength of duplex 2205 stainless steel strip is more than twice that of normal austenitic stainless steel strip.

This feature enables engineers and designers to reduce weight when designing related products, making this strip more cost-effective than 316L stainless steel strip and 317L stainless steel strip.

When it comes to finned tubes production, corrosion resistance can be key. That’s why customers come to us when sourcing 2205 stainless steel strip material for this finned tubes application. We’ve got you covered.
