QFin’s Patent-Pending Design Maximizes the heat input of a carbon or stainless steel internal heating coils and it is fully removable and replaceable. QFin is a bolt-on heating fin that attaches to any size pipe. The highly conductive aluminum material of QFin increases the heating surface area by 1,000% which allows for greater heating capabilities or decreased total footage of the internal coil. QFin is specifically designed for high-viscosity fluids such as Asphalt, Bitumen and Coker Feeds to allow for easy removal and reinstallation of fins if the product cokes on the fins.

QFin Offers Consistent Results whether the goal is:

  • Process Temperature Maintenance

  • Rapid Process Heat-Up

  • Critical Process Freeze Protection
