Tests having proven that the unit will have a

formed to provide distorted air passages for the
purpose of creating certain turbulence in the air
currents passing between the tubes and through
said air passages, it is proposed to form the de
pressions I5 in a manner which will produce dis- .
torted surfaces which will promoteA such turbu
lence. To this end, the manufacture of these
corrugated fins contemplates the forming of the
30 depressions I5 by merely depressing and crimping
a portion of each crest to form a senil-circular
recess, the metal being allowed to form as it will
into ridges, as indicated at J6, and plaits, as indi
cated at l1.
In Fig. 6 there is shown a triple pass triple
row unit including three of the conduits C, ar
_ Thus, instead of providing straight-wail pas
sages such as would permit a smooth undisturbed
passage of the entrained air, my improved type of
baille iin provides air passages formed entirely of
deformed metal so that the air contacts only un
dulatingy or roughened walls which will induce a 25
turbulence of the air throughout its entire trave)
through the air passages. This continuous air
turbulence produces a higher eillciency of heat
-interchange than can be had with those types of
fin construction in which the fins are deformed 30
ranged side by side in spaced relationship with
their similar parallel tubes I0 transversely
aligned. The inlet and outlet ends of these con- ‘
40 duits may be connected by manifold fittings. i8,
only at spaced intervals.
Further, my improved baille fin produces a
structure whichv has a degree of ,strength and
-stability not inherent in those forms of fins which
l are perforated and stamped to provide deflecting
tangs, it being obvious that such perforations
lessen the structural stability of any form of
radiating fin.

the single series of wide ñns l“2 extend through
all three coils of this triple unit and thus not only I
55 reinforce each coil but effectively tie all three
coils together at a multiplicity of points through
out the entire area of lthe unit.
In Fig. 8 there is shown a single pass double
row unit in which a single sinuous conduit C2 is
formed to provide tworelatively spaced rows of
lparallel tubes, with the tubes of said rows stag

' elongated spiral coilforming a continuous cir
cuit alternately including in sequence the tubes of

structure, and while the preferred form of struc
ture shown in the drawing- has been described as
being adapted for use in connection with re
frigerating or air conditioning apparatus, it is
to be understood that »the invention is not to be
limited in this regard'for it is also well adapted
for use in anyv situation in which a heat inter
change is to be eñected between two liquids` or
two gases or between a liquid and a gas, and is 60
susceptible of embodiment in various other forms,
