BioTherm’s engineers recently reviewed their tooling for their hydronic heat pipe products and realized that with a minor modification of adding small ridges to the surfaces, they could increase the performance by 6.7%-10.5% with only minor additional use of aluminum.
“It’s like we added micro-fins to the main fins,” said Jim Rearden, President. “We will be enhancing all of our heat pipe tooling to include these enhancements.”
Hydronic heat is a rugged, reliable system that delivers safe, efficient, and responsive heat at a lower operating cost compared to forced air. DuoFin and StarFin are the two products that will take on the new design. With their added surface area, horticulturalists can heat their greenhouses in a faster, more economic manner.
