BEST ANNUAL ACCOUNT EVER ?
The annual account for the fiscal year 2018-2019 is
now being prepared and will be official during the first part of the
summer. There are many indicators showing that AB&CO have one of the
best result in many years.
NEW DESIGN ON WEB
The website of AB&CO is mainly a collection of
technical information related to industrial heaters and heat
exchangers. The new design will give you as a technician an easy and
fast access to your specific requirement for your particular
technical task. You will also find a lot of extra technical
information, not only about the large range of products and
application, but also general technical explanations, such as photos
of special designs, 3D sketches, diagrams, formulas, equations and
table values. Visit the new page at
30 YEAR'S BIRTHDAY
In 1988 AB&CO was founded. In 2018 it was 30 years ago. Obviously a
lot has happened during the years, but customised process heating
have been the key competence all the years - from design to

AAA RATING FOR
AB&CO GROUP IN 2017
AB&CO have for the 9th
time in recent years been
awarded with the highest possible creditworthiness rating.
AAA is a D&B rating given only to companies with an exceedingly
strong ability to meet current payment obligations. Denmark
is a country where companies have generally very high
creditworthiness. Still only below 2% of companies in
Denmark are rated AAA - and only 0,5% has been awarded this
rating in more than 3 years.

ISO 9001:2015 -
LATEST QUALITY SYSTEM
AB&CO have today got the latest ISO 9001:2015 certification of
quality management to our extensive services worldwide. The services
comprise boilers, heaters and process heating systems - from
dimensioning to start-up.
OFFER FOR FINANCING
AB&CO is now able
to assist customer with support in case financing becomes a
challenge due to the global bank situation. The official national
credit fund in Denmark called 'EKF' can help in financing the
purchase of AB&CO products. The arrangement is based on an
individual evaluation of the customer and country, and will involve
a fee for the financing. The fee will depend on the risk that is
considered by EKF, but is normally below 5% sometimes down to 1%

IS THE FUTURE !
Throughout Europe energy is made by
wind-power, solar power, hydro power and non-fossil fuels. Cars runs
on electricity from wind power generated in the the night-time - and
process heating is provided by electrical boilers and heaters. AB&CO
is a leading actor in this huge environmental step.
Standing in front of the electrical company car, Marcus from the R&D
workshop is carrying the smallest 6 kW TEKNIK steam boiler - on his
left side you will find two 1 T/h electric steam boilers ready for
The market asks for
electric steam boilers
deliveries of economical electric steam boilers up to 270
kg/h are now on the highest level ever. After customers in
Denmark, Sweden and Norway have become frequent customers, also Finland and the three Baltic countries has join
the club of key-markets for TEKNIK steam boilers type K-DH.
electric steam boiler type K-DH is a range of small boilers
that in capacities goes from 2 kg/h up to 270 kg/h steam and
up to 10 barg.
This steam boilers are developed mainly for sporadic steam
requirements during smaller or longer periods of operation
and stop/stand-by. These units are typically used for small
food processing applications, small breweries, institutes,
institutions, labs, test beds, pilot plants etc. Also in
connection with existing steam installations, these small
units proof efficient being used in remote spots that need
steam in small amounts, and thereby avoiding large steam
piping being led from the main system al the way to these
On the other hand these boilers are not suitable for real
24/7 operations i.e. constant operation where steam must
never be interrupted and the steam boiler must be of a rigid
heavy-duty design that can accept very harsh condition and
failure in proper operation to a certain degree.
application, it is recommended to use the industrial TT
BOILERS range, that goes from 5 - 1500 kg/h steam and
pressure from 0 up to 40 barg.

- TEKNIK economical commercial boilers
- TT BOILERS industrial customised boilers
In the European Nordic countries, the electric steam boilers
have become environmental, since electricity here is mainly
made by hydro power, wind power, solar power and in a
certain extent nuclear power. These energy sources do not
lead out CO2 and do not have flue gas emission. On top of
this the electricity prices in worldwide keeps on falling
and is now on the lowest level ever.
heating is the environmental way today - and that is easily
registered in the AB&CO order books for electric steam

CONSULTING SERVICES - HEAT RECOVERY
worldwide lead large amount of waste heat to the environment through
flue gas and exhaust air. While heat recovery of process heating 10
years ago was almost a general accepted issue, it is today far
feasible and thus interesting to minimise waste heat by heat
The industries can easily calculate how much is gained by waste heat
reduction through heat recovery. But when it comes to how to find
the best technical solution with lowest investment , things becomes
much more complicated.
AB&CO experience an increasing demand for having concrete technical
proposals made on consultant basis before investing a huge amount of
money. This field is precisely where AB&CO are among the best
consultants on the market. With more than 25 years experience in
delivering tailor-made solution for process heating and heat
recovery, AB&CO are able to make a very 'sharp shot' on how the
money are spent with maximum economical gain. Often a project start
like this and then develops to an order like the 'Large Heat
Recovery System' (as descriped in the left column).
about this consulting service.
Our new business focus on
environmental process heating and heat recovery are now
being symbolised by our new logo, which you will find
everywhere in our material - and which remind you about our
concern for the environment when designing the boilers,
heaters and complete process heating systems with high
efficiencies, heat recovery features and clean technology.
PROCESS AIR HEATERS
FOR DRYING PROCESSES WORLDWIDE
For projects worldwide, an increasing amount of
the special high quality process air heat exchangers, are now being
delivered. The units are delivered to food processing plants and for
chemical application covering everything from baking/cooking to
conventional spray-drying. Especially steam and thermal oil is used for heating
up the process air, but also dehumidifying is requested - particular
for spray drying project in tropical / subtropical humid areas.
THERMAL OIL HEATERS
Thermal oil heaters of both
oil/gas-fired and electrical heated types are delivered in large
quantities worldwide at the moment. One single customer ordered 10
(ten) oil-fired types each 800 kW. A customer from China, within
textile processing plants, have through 8 months been ordered 6
(six) systems skid-mounted on a base frame - everything connected
plug 'n play. For this customer AB&CO is now manufacturing a 1400 kW
skid-mounted unit including a thermal oil heated steam boiler and
hot water heater on the unit - and of course a flue gas heat
recovery unit (economizer) for preheating process water.

More about this steam / thermal fluid challenge.
STEAM GENERATOR BOILERS TAKES OVER
capacities below 2000 kg/h the classic fire-tube steam boilers seems
to loose the battle against the compact steam generator boiler.
AB&CO supplies both types of steam boilers, but the demand for steam
generator boilers are huge, while the inquiries for fire-tube
boilers are modest.
Reason for this is obviously that the advantages of the steam
generators (low water volume, fast start-up, compact, possibilities
for high steam pressures and of course lower price) determine the
More about these steam boiler types and differences.
A very large part
of the boiler and heater solution delivered the last 2 years, has
been delivered either skid-mounted on a base frame with tanks,
pumps, accessories, piping and wiring - or build into a container.
Cost studies show that "at the end of the day" it is much more
economical to assemble as much as possible on the workshop - instead
of on the site.
Container solution and skid-mounted units is possible when the
boiler and heater size is below abt. 1500 kW.
