Technical Assistance
& Tools for Engineers

Technical Assistance Consulting Services


Process heating systems and equipment for the industry are characterised by involving large installation and thus also large investments. Consequently large amount of energy is consumed and large amount of waster heat and CO2 is dissipated to the environment...

AB&CO CONSULT are consulting engineers, specialising in technical assistance in establish and optimising environmental process heating and heat recovery. The company and the consulting services is an important part AB&CO Group, operating from premises in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Specific Boiler & Heater Technical Literature   

Thermal Fluid versus Saturated Steam
When to use thermal oil instead of steam for process heating. An important question that can save you or cost you a fortune depending on how you choose. Read this to be better making the right decision.

Steam Generator versus Steam Boiler
Saturated stream in amount up to 2 - 3 tons per hour can be made on a conventional steam boiler or using a steam generator. The features and application fields are not the same for the two steam producing types. Get familiar with the differences and make an optimum choice.
