Spiral Finned Tubes (Fintubes)

Designed and Fabricated with Precision for Your Heat Recovery System


Fintubes (or finned tubes) are a major component of any heat recovery system. To deliver maximum heating performance and efficiency, HRSG fintubes require complex custom designs and precision fabrication capabilities.

At Chanute Manufacturing, our premium fintubes are meticulously produced to exact customer specifications, designed from the ground up for flawless fit, functionality and reliability.

Our Precision Fintube Fabrication Process

Our custom fabrication facility utilizes two high-frequency resistance welding machines. The component’s fin, either solid or serrated, is helically wound around the tube and resistance welded. Bending, on the bare tube or over the fin, is performed on-site with custom designed duplex benders.


Custom Engineered and Manufactured from Premium Metals and Alloys

Our fintubes are fabricated from quality metals with application-specific optimizations in both cost and performance.

  • Alloy
  • Stainless Steel

Dedicated to Precision Fintube Production Since 1992

In 1992, the shareholders of Optimus and TFT (“Tulsa Fin Tube”) formed CFT for the express purpose of manufacturing resistance welded fintubes. CFT’s manufacturing facility is located adjacent to Chanute Manufacturing’s plant. The close proximity of the finning operation and the manufacturing plant allows significant savings in packaging and freight as well as working capital reduction as a result of “just-in-time” scheduling.
