2 Claims, 3 Drawing Figures HIGH CAPACITY FINNED TUBE I-[EAT EXCHANGER' BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention This invention relates to finned tube heat exchangers, and more particularly to a fin construction and configuration for increasing the heat transfer efficiency of the heat exchanger.
2. Description of the Prior Art Finned tube heat exchangers consist essentially of a plurality of closely spaced sheet metal-finswith a plurality of refrigerant carrying tubes passing through the fins generally at right angles thereto. A high degree of heat transfer occurs between the exterior fluid such as air which generally is in forced flow across the surface of the fins and at right angles to the axis of the tubes and the fluid within the tubes by way of the fins. Such heat exchangers employ various tube arrangements and fin shapes in an attempt to achieve maximum heat transfer. Basically, the fin surfaces are designed to break the boundary layer formed on the surface of the fin and to create turbulence in the air and thus increase heat transfer between the refrigerant within the tubes and the exterior fluid passingover the fin surfaces. Unfortunately, the heat transfer capacity of the heat exchanger increases atthe expense in air pressure drop to the heat exchanger. One attempt at providing an increased heat transfer capacity by modification of the fin structure is set forth in US. Pat. No. 3,631,922, wherein openings are provided within the fin by striking a plurality of tangs outwardly from the fins from one side thereof and towards the adjacent fin, the tangs projecting through the air flow and creating a desired turbulence to air flow through the heat exchanger and at right angles to the multiple refrigerant carrying tubes. The presence of the tangs constitutes a lint trap and accelerates clogging of the coil. Further, the presence of the tangs actually inhibit passage of the air through the holes resulting from the struck away tangs and their presence, while substantially increasing the turbulence of the air stream passing therethrough for increased heat transfer capacity, materially increase the pressure drop of the air stream across the heat exchanger.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The improved fin structure and configuration of the fin and tube heat exchanger of the present invention has for its object a provision of a fin surface which has higher outside film coefficient with little increase in air pressure drop through the heat exchanger by diffusing and mixing the air as it flows through the heat exchanger. The fin is constructed such that the air flowing through the exchanger changes direction to remove more heat from the fin surface. The length of the flow path for the air flowing through the heat exchanger is increased to increase heat transfer between the fluids. It permits higher face velocities without condensate blow off problems where the heat exchanger is used within a dehumidifying application, while further providing a fin which is lighter in weight which acts to reduce the weight of the heat exchanger as a whole.
These objects are met in a preferred embodiment of a fin and tube heat exchanger in which a plurality of fluid carrying tubes pass through aligned holes within a plurality of closely spaced, generally parallel fins formed of conventional thin metal sheet stock. Specifically, the fins are bent into convoluted form in the flow direction of the external fluid and carry a plurality of openings or holes within respective convolution walls which are in flow aligned to permit the air flow to change direction and to pass alternately along its flow path in contact with respective opposite surfaces of the same fin as it moves across and through the convolutions. Preferably, the fins are bent or folded in accordion pleated fashion in terms of shallow, angulated convolutions with each convolution wall carrying a plurality of holes elongated in a direction at right angles to the flow path of the air stream. Where the fluid carrying tubes are arranged in rows in offset fashion, the air passage holes within the fins lie intermediate of the tubes for each row to create air turbulence in line with the tube row.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Referring to the drawings, there is illustrated in FIG. 1 a vertically oriented heat exchanger 10 such as that forming an evaporator coil or a condenser coil for an air conditioning system humidifier, or the like, in which case, a plurality of elongated refrigerant carrying tubes 12 are connected in serpentine fashion by means of return bend tube portions 14 into a vertically oriented assembly and held in place by frame members at the top and bottom such as frame member 16 and constituting a relatively rigid structural array. Only a fragmentary portion of the heat exchanger is illustrated, the heat exchanger 10 being coupled by conventional means to a source of refrigerant which passes through the refrigerant carrying tubes in series or parallel flow paths to effect heat exchange with a secondary external fluid which in this case is air, passing at right angles to the axis of the tubes 12 and to the plane of the paper illustrating the same, FIG. 1. In this respect, the frame member 16 maybe provided with annular flanges 18 through which the individual tubes pass and in the illustrated portion of the heat exchanger, the return bends l4'may be integral with or joined to straight tubes 12 approximately at the location of the flared flanges 18.
The invention is particularly directed to the employment of a plurality of elongated, thin sheet metal fins 20 which extend longitudinally from one end of the heat exchanger 10 to the other in close, vertically be formed of aluminum, and. the fins20, is the provision of circular holes 22 for each tube, the holes 22 being created by punching material from the desired location to permit forming, as illustrated in FIG. 2, a number of rows of tubes as A, B, C and D to carry the fins, the holes 22 of the rows of openings being alternately offset both laterally and longitudinally in the illustrated embodiment to achieve maximum heat transfer between the air flowing in the direction of arrows 24, FIG. 2, at right angles to the axis of the holes, and the refrigerant or other confined fluid within the tubes 12. Further, inorder to effect the conductivity between the fins and the tubes, which are received thereby, in the illustrated embodiment, preferably each tube receiving hole 22, is formed by an annular integral ring 26 formed during stamping, including-a flange portion 28 at bend point 30 with the central tubular portion 32 receiving its tube 12 and forming a low impedance, heat conducting path between the ring 26 and the fin carrying the same. These tubular portions and rings are formed by extruding the base sheet metal (fin stock). Intimate contact is then provided between the fin and the tube by expanding the tube about twenty thou sandths inch (0.020 inch). The free edge 36 f the tubular portion 32 of ring 26 is flared outwardly to permit the fins to readily receive the tubes and be stacked on the tubes during assembly of the heat exchanger.
An important aspect of the present invention resides in the provision of accordion pleats or angulated convolutions to the individual fins by bending the .fins along fold lines 38, at right angles to the air flow path, indicated by arrow 24, to effect shallow angulated convolutioris in which the adjacent convolution walls 40 extend obliquely in opposite directions as best seen in FIG. 3. Further, as illustrated in FIG. 3, convolution walls 40 are provided with air passage openings or holes 42 intermediate of the fold lines which are generally in flow direction alignment and permit the air to pass from one side of the fin to the other at each convolution for increasing turbulence and heat transfer withstream passing through the heat exchanger 10. As illustrated in FIG. 2, the air passage openings or holes 42 within the fins are elongated in a direction at right angles to the air flow path-and are illustrated as being flattened in configuration, although of course the size and configuration as well as the number of holes for each convolution wall may readily vary depending upon the design parameters for the particular heat exchanger application. Further, as illustrated in FIG. 2, the air passage openings or holes 42 form a series intermediate of tube openings 22 for a given tube row at all of the four tube location rows A, B, C, or D. As such, air flow impinging against a heat exchange refrigerant carrying tube 20 passes about the tube on each side thereof and prior to impacting the tube downstream therefrom and in line therewith, passes through the four aligned air passage holes or openings 42 and thrice changes posi-.
tionrelative to the surfaces of the fins to break the boundary layer formed on the surface of the fin and create turbulence in the air passing through the heat 4 which case the edge of the fin defining the opening 20 in each casedirectly contacts the tube walls to achieve a high thermal conductivity joint there'between.
From the above construction, it ,is noted that a substantial portion of the fin surface between adjacent tubes 20 carry the punched holes 42 to cause the air flowing through the exchanger to follow a long route relative to the surface of the fins over which the air passes and thereby increase the heat transfer therebetween. Where the heat exchanger of the present invention is employed in a dehumidifying function, the water removed from the air has a tendency to adhere to the fin surfaces and may accumulate within the punched holes 42. The punched holes 42 prevent the water blow out and thus the air passing therethrough may be driven at high face velocities without condensate blow off problems. Where the heat exchanger is employed in an environment in which weight is a material factor,since a substantial portion of the fin material is punched out.
to form the holes 42, simultaneously with bending the fins about fold lines 38 in accordion pleated fashion, the net result is the creation of a heat exchanger whose overall weight is reduced and permitting it to beused under high heat exchange efficiency in vehicle environments and other environments where weight is an important factor.
While the invention has been particularly shown and described with reference to a preferred embodiment thereof, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that various changes in form and details may be made therein without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
