Kelvion are the experts in heat exchange

Kelvion is one of the leading global manufacturers of heat exchangers and has been providing solutions for almost every industrial application imaginable since the 1920s, specializing in customized solutions suitable for extreme environmental conditions – as of 2015 under the name of Kelvion.

The origin of Kelvion heat exchangers business goes back to 1920, when GEA was founded as Gesellschaft für Entstaubungs-Anlagen‘ by Otto Happel. Over the first decades the company strongly expanded its heat exchanger activities, becoming an early innovator in thermal engineering and setter of technological standards. In 1999, GEA was acquired by mg technologies AG (the successor of Metallgesellschaft), which was renamed to GEA Group AG in 2005. In 2010, GEA bundled all of its heat exchanger activities in one segment (“HX”). In 2014, GEA Heat Exchangers was acquired by Triton fund.

With a new name, the core business of the former GEA Heat Exchangers Segment has been formally split from the GEA Group AG and is writing its own history as Kelvion.

The name Kelvion pays homage to Lord Kelvin (1824 – 1907). Lord Kelvin formulated the laws of thermodynamics and absolute units of temperature are stated in kelvin, in his honor.
