Kelvion, GEA Ahlborn or GEA Ecoflex is a long-established manufacturer of plate heat exchangers located south of Hanover. The company was founded in 1856 by Eduard Ahlborn and invented the first plate heat exchanger for milk pasteurisation in 1931. In 1979 the company Eduard Ahlborn was taken over by the GEA Group (Gesellschaft für Entstaubungsanlagen- corporation for de-dusting equipment) from Bochum. GEA Ahlborn was mainly active in food processing system construction and also produced plate heat exchangers for this purpose. In 1995, the production of plate heat exchangers was spun off and GEA Ecoflex GmbH has been operating under this name ever since. After the new orientation of GEA Ecoflex a new plate generation was developed, the NT (New Technology) series. GEA Ecoflex has one of the largest ranges of plate heat exchangers. Applications include food, chemical, marine, building technology, sugar and paper, renewable energy, refrigeration, oil- gas and heavy industry. With the production of gasketed plate heat exchangers (VT and NT series), free-flow plates (FA and NF series), LWC (laser-welded cassette), Concitherm plates (evaporator plates) as well as brazed and fully welded plate heat exchangers GEA Ecoflex has one of the largest ranges on the market. GEA Ecoflex has focused on the development and production of plate heat exchangers and is the global technology leader.
The managing director of AKK Industrieservice & Handels GmbH, Mr. Ralf Kreibohm, was a long-time employee of GEA Ahlborn/GEA Ecoflex and worked there as sales manager until he founded the independent service company AKK Industrieservice & Handels GmbH in 2000, which offers spare parts such as gaskets and heat exchanger plates as well as service works.
