G & M GROUP was invited to resolve these on going issues with the fleet of trains.

After a number of investigations and test, it was decided that the existing design and durability was not suitable for the rail environment and they would all be changed.

Air Side Fouling


Alutec`s solution - Square Wave Hemmed Fin

Equipment Manufactures drive to reduce weight, size , and increase efficiency simple creates in service issues within a relatively short period in service.
The designs inevitable end up with a high fin pitch and louvered surfaces, both of which add to speed of fouling in the ``field``

See Fig 1 & Fig 2 Typical blockage air side.

Alutec UK Ltd have seen and resolved several in service fouling issues as seen in Fig 1 & 2, by applying our knowledge and design solutions,trialed and proven in typically rail & plant environments. Our square wave hemmed fin is proving to be the only solution which allows required duty/performance with reduced maintenance requirements.

Square or Vee wave hemmed fin for those applications that require duty and durability from regular cleaning, to the applications that can cope with a totally finless option in the harshest of environments.

Recent developments of Alutec`s fin & tube technology has encouraged OEM`s to consider reducing fins per inch to try and improve durability and performance.


See Fig 3 :- View of hemmed edge and square wave detail.
