The technological developments in the steam boiler field, induced by changes in the use of different fins and the need to save energy, has its consequential effects on the heat transfer techniques.

As the extended surface tube is one of the important components of the steam boilers and particularly of waste heat recovery boilers (WHRB) behind turbines, we want to draw the attention to recent developments in the field of finned tubes, opening new possibilities for the optimization of construction costs of WHRB on one hand and reducing the fouling problem by a new geometry of the helically wound fins on the other hand.
