The main aspect for a retrofit is to optimize the existing systems in terms of energy and gas saving, the reduction of emissions and the adjustment on the latest standards and safety requirements for industrial heating systems.


By using state-of-the-art technology fault analysis can be done more efficient and maintenance time will be reduced in order to save expenses.
