The off-shore-industry
Oil heaters for the Norwegian market demand in-depth knowledge of thermal design and various use cases. We are licensed according to Achilles, approval for the Norwegian and Danish off-shore markets.

Synthetic fuels:
We have recently delivered advanced equipment for synthetic fuels.

We delivered columns and heat exchangers to Statoil Mongstad, the world's first full-size CCS site in 2009. The choice of material is critical for this demanding application.


The Swedish pulp and paper industry is among the most effecient in the world. A condition for competing with low-cost countries is efficiently automated mills with few maintenance stops.

E&S is supporting our customers with support and process analysis to shorten and minimise such stops. A team of our support staff has assisted Södra Cell in Mörrum.

Back flushing for decreased fouling:
A number of paper mills in Sweden have installed the Ekström backflush valve and have decreased the maintenance stop interval from 6 months to more than 2 years. Read more at Smart Loop backspolningsventiler
