High Performance & High Temperature Heaters

AB&CO offer a wide range of high performance air heating batteries for industrial applications - designed with finned tubes (extended heat surface), plain tubes or electrical elements.
o Process air, heated by :
Saturated steam
 | Thermal oil | Water | Electricity  | Combi
o Operation at Very High :
Temperatures  |  Pressures  | Output / Capacities
o Delivered in compact design due to very high heat transfer ensured by for instance the special compound finned tubes.
o Ensuring high reliability by high quality. Dedicated to users who demand lowest amount of down-time for maintenance and low LCC (long-term total cost)
o Customised to almost any applications within
, Food &  Pharmaceutical Industry
o Uique for Spray Drying Plants
for dairy, food, chemical and other industrial applications.
o Operating today in almost any country all over the world, complying with even the most demanding authorities.




















Heat Surface Options  :

- Compound Finned Tubes - aluminium fins machined up from extruded jackets on a core steel tube. For a compact and light design and still high temperature (300C) and strong design. Preferred design for spray drying applications.

- Plain tubes (without any fins). Made in carbon steel (mild steel) or stainless steel. For aggressive and/or very polluted air and gas.
