Serpentine Tube Benders

Winton offers a series of options for serpentine tube bending. Serpentine Benders are used a lot in the refrigeration and heat transfer markets where copper tubing is used. CNC serpentine tube benders bend copper tubing efficiently.

Why Serpentine Tube Bending

The answer is simple; to transfer heat. A tube bent into a shape of a serpentine allows an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to extract heat from one environment and transport that heat to another area. For example, a refrigerator has heat energy contained within the products that a user wants to keep cool. Product examples may include milk, meat, or even butter. The goal of a refrigeration system is to extract the heat out of the refrigerated products. A tube bent in the shape of a serpentine is an efficient solution to help extract this heat.

A serpentine profile is an efficient way to maximize the amount of surface area (and thus refrigerant) needed for heat transfer given a limited amount of space. Being that a serpentine profile is most often one continuous bent tube, by default the number of connections is limited to two (the two ends) thus reducing an OEMs warranty costs.

So, there seems to be a need for serpentine bent profiles. From a fabrication view point, the next logical question becomes “what are the options for making such a configuration”. It turns out that the options range form very low tech hand bending to CNC tube benders.
