Since 1962...

IFTE is a small privately owned Pennsylvania company. Our goal is to provide superior engineering services and manufactured products of the highest quality. We welcome the opportunity to provide design and price estimates to assist you in estimating and budgeting industrial finned tube heat exchanger projects.

IFTE designs and provides helical finned tube heat exchangers. We provide thermal and mechanical design with a guarantee, and furnish our exchangers to the ASME Code and API standards. We offer materials through Hastelloy and design pressures through 3,000 psi. We also offer special designs including lethal service, special testing and welded tube-to-tube sheet joints.

Thermal and mechanical designs and drafting are developed with in house software, including ASPEN and Auto-CAD. IFTE specializes in complex thermal and mechanical designs in alloy materials. Selected products include air-cooled heat exchangers, duct or transition type exchangers, extended surface coils or sections, economizers and special heat exchangers.

The company's sole office is near Bridgeville, PA, a suburb of Pittsburgh. Sales are national through representatives in major marketing areas. For further information, contact Sidney Lauther.

IFTE specializes in the thermal and mechanical design of finned tube heat exchangers and related products. Designs are to the ASME Code and drawings are developed with Auto-CAD.
