July 25, 2007: Trane Introduces Matched System of All-Aluminum Coils

TYLER, Texas - Trane has announced that it is now offering a matched system of all-aluminum coils, extending the success of its patented Spine Fin™ condenser coil to the new AlumaTuff™ evaporator coil. With aluminum tubes, tube sheets, and plate fins, the AlumaTuff™ coil resists formicary corrosion to prevent rusty tube sheets and reduce pinhole leaks.

“Being corrosion and rust resistant, all-aluminum coils deliver on the promise of high efficiency over time, while assuring exceptional reliability,” said Randy Scott, Trane vice president, product systems management. Trane backs the AlumaTuff coil with a 10-year limited warranty.

The AlumaTuff coil still uses copper-to-copper refrigerant line connections so that standard installation procedures can be followed. With the same performance ratings and casing dimensions of the copper coils they replace, the aluminum coils are available for different cabinet widths. They are designed for a flush fit and easy attachment with upflow, downflow, and horizontal left airflow. A two-way, sloped, non-corrosive drain pan prevents standing water and reduces bacteria growth, which can improve indoor air quality.

Easy access to the internal components, as well as foil-faced insulation, makes it easier to clean and service the AlumaTuff coil, helping lead to higher efficiency and longer life. Refrigerant charging or evacuation is made easier with an external service port, along with a non-bleed thermostatic expansion valve for refrigerant replacement without brazing.

A baked-on high-gloss rust and corrosion-proof finish matches Trane furnace cabinets.
