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 with electrical elements.


  Process air, heated by :
Saturated Steam | Thermal Fluid | WaterElectricity | Combinations. Choose your heat source.
  Operation at Very High :
Temperatures  |  Pressures  | Output / Capacities
  Delivered in compact design due to very high heat transfer ensured by for instance the special compound finned tubes.
  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)
  Customised to almost any applications within
Chemical, Food &  Pharmaceutical Industry
  Unique for Spray Drying Plants
for dairy, food, chemical industries and other process heating applications.
  Operating today in almost any country all over the world, complying with even the most demanding authorities. See the extract of references since 1992.












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.
