Ormiston Wire turbulators boost heat exchange efficiency

Ormiston Wire has launched a range of wire turbulators for heat exchanger tubes that significantly cut the cost and size of exchangers while also improving performance.  These benefits are achieved through the specialist looped-spiral design devised by Ormiston Wire, which has a depth of expertise in heat exchange technology and has manufactured wire turbulators since 1968.

The key to these enhancements is the density of the wire turbulators, which can be varied to suit the flow of liquid or gas.  Because optimising the density maximises excitement and heat transfer coefficient with a minimum loss of pressure, system designers can reduce the length, diameter and/or number of tubes required per unit, while flow pumps can also be kept to a minimum size.  These savings in cost and component size, coupled with the specialist looped-spiral design, enable greater efficiency and enhanced performance.

Ormiston’s Wire Turbulators can be supplied in a range of metals to suit the application, with current production runs including galvanized mild steel, stainless steel, copper and monel metal.  Components are also available in a range of sizes; turbulators can be supplied at lengths from 15cm up to 3 metres and these can be easily connected to achieve longer lengths, while diameter can be varied to suit any tube from 6.35mm up to 32mm.

About Us

Ormiston Wire Limited was founded in 1793 by James Ormiston, an enterprising young Scotsman. Six generations later, under the leadership of descendent Mark Ormiston, we are still an independent and family-run business. We began in the City of London, making spring-wire for corsets and wigs. This was in the days before rubber. Today we have manufacturing facilities in Isleworth, west London and Redditch in the Midlands. We pride ourselves in being able to manufacture almost any type of wire for almost any type of application. Our manufacturing processes can accommodate either ferrous or non-ferrous wire or strands, to any size or length. They include facilities for rolling, winding, rewinding, spooling, braiding, bunching, stranding and plastic coating, according to specification. The diversity of end uses for our products ranges from delicate surgical sutures, to special effects applications for the film industry, to polypropylene- covered and Kevlar-cored strands for low-voltage lighting, to the high-specification demands of the nuclear industry.
