Alloy Solutions

Virtus Precision Tube uses its metallurgical expertise to pursue new tube alloy solutions that deliver advantages over industry standard alloys We use this same alloy know-how to help our customers develop economical heat exchangers that have the strength to handle next generation refrigerants.

UNITUBE®

Virtus's standard DHP copper tube is branded UNITUBE and is available as hairpins, smooth or inner-grooved tube.  UNITUBE can also be tin coated with Virtus's T-Proof® corrosion resistant coating.

UNILLOY®

Virtus's new UNILLOY tube is composed of a high strength Cu-Ni-Sn alloy and currently available in sizes 1/4", 7mm, 5/16", 3/8" and 1/2".

Advantages of UNILLOY:

  • Significant raw material cost savings when applied to both existing and futures designs of ACR heat exchangers
  • Reduces copper consumption by allowing the use of thinner tube walls in standard refrigeration applications
  • Heat transfer and pressure drop testing equivalent to current C122 alloy
  • Enables the use of high performance roll-and-weld technology, while remaining competitive with other tube manufacturing processes
  • Provides a platform to develop next generation heat exchangers using CO2 and other high-pressure refrigerants

UNILLOY® tube is available in Virtus's revolutionary 'Tube-in-a-Cube® (TIAC®) package, or can be supplied in custom sized hairpin form.

By using TIAC® packaging, customers have fewer tie-offs which result in less changeover scrap and greater uptime on equipment.
