Castle Heat Exchangers
Bespoke Cooling & Heating solutions, with a specialization in Castle finned tube heat exchanger design and manufacturing.
Castle Coils – Finned Tube Heat Exchangers
Our expertise lies in the fabrication of Castle Coil – finned tube heat exchangers. What sets us apart is our exclusive computer software, developed in collaboration with Massey University’s School of Engineering and Advanced Technology.
Heat Exchangers are constructed using plate heat exchange fins and certified core tubes, reinforced with tube plates, core supports, and full panel work. These custom units can be manufactured with Mill finish, Epoxy coated or Hygienic T304 or T316 Stainless Steel, to provide long-term solutions for challenging environments and applications where hygiene is of utmost importance.
Our heat exchangers are available to accommodate various mediums, including hot, cold, or chilled water, refrigerant gas or liquid, clean or geothermal steam. They can also be configured with or without propeller, axial, or centrifugal fans, powered by AC, EC conventional, or flameproof motors.
