At lower inlet air velocity, the corrosion pits, the corrosion fouling, and the condensate water drops on the corroded fin surfaces can roughen the fin surfaces, and then the rough fin surfaces may cause the twisted airflow, which can enhance air-side heat transfer; at higher inlet air velocity, the dehumidifying capacity enhances compared with that at low inlet air velocity, and more and more condensate water drops and water bridges adhere on the fin surfaces as the receding angle increases (Min et al.
