Grooved stainless steel tubing improves heating in applications involving heat transfer between gases or gases and liquids, including process boilers. Groove-Rite can be configured in several pitch and groove depths. A single-start, helical groove is achieved by a roll-forming process that puts minimal stress into the material. The outer diameter of the grooved portion of the tube does not exceed the outer diameter of the plain ends, resulting in grooved tubes that can be inserted into tubesheets and supported by plates in the same manner as plain surface condenser tubes.
