OAK Seminar Series at AHR Orlando 2016


Burr Oak Tool will host an exhibit at the annual AHR EXPO January 25th – 27th at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. OAK representatives, located at booth #3831, will be on hand to answer questions about the heat exchanger production industry, as well as its innovative new Phoenix pressure expander.

Throughout the show, OAK will give presentations on a variety of useful subjects as a part of its informative Seminar Series. Seminar topics include the following:

OAK Product Innovations | Monday 1/25 – 11 AM and Tuesday 1/26 – 5 PM:

This seminar will emphasize the innovative, production-enhancing features of the latest OAK coil manufacturing and tube processing machines, as well as how to retrofit these new options to older machines. This presentation will also offer an overview of future advances in OAK coil and tube processing machines.

5mm Microgroove versus MicroChannel Tubes | Monday 1/25 – 3 PM and Tuesday 1/26 – 11 AM:

Learn about the challenges and advantages associated with moving to small-diameter tubes, in addition to the characteristics of small-diameter Microgroove compared to Microchannel tubes used in heat exchanger production.


Evolution of Coil and Tube Manufacturing (Co-presentation with Luvata) | Monday 1/25 - 5 PM, Tuesday 1/26 – 3 PM,and Wednesday 1/27 – 11 AM:

This joint presentation with Luvata Tube will focus on the challenges created by decreasing tube diameters required in current heat exchanger coil design. Learn about fin press tonnage requirements, fin handling, hairpin manufacture and handling, aluminum tube handling, and tube and coil expansion.


Non-invasive Pressure Expansion | Tuesday 1/26 – 1 PM and Wednesday 1/27 – 1 PM:

Explore how new OAK Phoenix pressure expansion technology is leading the way for producing superior high-efficiency heat exchangers using small-diameter Microgroove tubing. This seminar will focus on the innovation behind the production-enhancing technology of pressure expansion, as well as the extensive engineering, testing, and validation that was involved with creating the Phoenix.



Seminar attendees who place a machine order within three months of the show will receive free machine set-up. Those who attend the Phoenix-specific seminar and place an order within 3 months will receive free machine set-up, as well as 10% off the purchase price of a Triumph hairpin bender.
