Serpentine Medium Core Assembly Fixture (SF-M-size)

These fixtures are used to build medium size heat exchangers which are tube and fin construction.  The core is built in layers, tube, fin, tube, etc. until the stack height is reached.  Once assembled, the core is compressed with two large cylinders from the bottom upward against a set of stop pins.  This ensures the core is compressed square and to the proper height required.  The fixture features side channels that independently retract out of the way for easy core removal and dedicated pressure gages to control the compression pressures.  Simple flexible design allows building of most any medium sized heat exchanger that uses a stacked design.
