In the spirit of our founder Mr. F. Janssens favourite topics, low tech becomes high tech when there is an improvement of quality and an increase of production, our main goals to improve the productivity through faster job turn arounds meanwhile complying with ISO 9001 standards. Quality plays indeed an important role within our organisation. Decometa was the first company of its kind to be certified in accordance to PED 97/23. Our air coolers, heat exchangers and pressure vessel equipment meet with all national and international standard codes.


Engineering Excellence
As a result of many years of field work and the efforts of an enthusiastic team of well trained and highly educated engineers, Decometa has gained an extensive wealth of experience in the design of pressure equipment and air cooled heat exchangers. Decometa offers global solutions for thermal and mechanical design, detailed engineering to fabrication, testing and on-site assistance. We have shared thoughts and experience with all our customers to find the right exchanger for each particular situation, no matter how difficult it might seem. Decometa is in the position to evaluate and compare a variety of exchanger options from the preliminary design stage in order to select the best option for the customer. With over more than 50 years of experience in a wide range of applications, Decometa has developed a comprehensive range of designs to cut plant processing costs by increasing the performance of heat exchangers in worlds major oil,

petrochemical and chemical process industries. Decometa designs, manufactures and implements tailor made constructions to solve heat exchanger and air cooled heat exchangers problems, and to improve process plant efficiency. The bulk of our projects include design improvements on air cooled heat exchangers and shell and tube heat exchangers, efficiency improvements, revamping & debottlenecking existing exchangers, air chilling and cleaning procedures of air cooled heat exchangers. Decometa is committed to an ongoing research and development to continually improve product performance. Our mechanical engineering group performs efficiently in house large scientific and technical calculations, 2D-3D drafting works, Finite Elements Analysis. Mechanical engineering, structural engineering is performed in accordance to international standards as API661/ASME VIII Div1/ TEMA/ AD2000/ STOOMWEZEN RULES/ CODAP/ PED 97-23. Earth quake (seismic) calculations and wind calculations are made following Eurocode or American standards. Decometa is specialized in process engineering for Air Cooled heat Exchangers (also called air fin coolers, or fin-fans) and shell and tube heat exchangers and pressure vessels.

Decometas factory (covered area of 7000 m on a total surface of 28000 m) is located in Genk-Belgium. We fabricate new equipment as well we repair and recondition existing installations as shell and tube heat exchangers, finned tube air-cooled heat exchangers, pressure vessels and distillation columns for the chemical and petrochemical industries.

The workshops are equipped with the most modern facilities for proper manufacturing and control such as: Cutting machines (plasma cutting machines) Various welding equipments for manual and automatic processes (ArcMIG-MAG-TIG-SAW-Weld-overlay. Electronically controlled tube ends expanding machines Fully automatic orbital GTAW tube ends welding machines Finning machines (for CS fins) Mobile cranes (capacity up to 35 tons) for field work Preparation & forming equipment Hydraulic plate rolls, guillotine, punching shears, profile plasma/gas cutting equipment Numerically controlled drilling/milling Decometa produces a wide range of pressure equipment to 50 tonnes per unit. We work in a wide range of metals from carbon steel to high alloy steels. The selection of materials can be normal steel, stainless, CuNi, CuZn or high quality material like duplex, super duplex or Titanium.

Spare Parts

We will deliver all spare parts: Headers Complete inter exchangeable bundles Rotating equipment; fans, shafts, transmission trains, shockswitches Plugs, gaskets, nozzles

Besides Decometas modern workshop, our project teams are also able to perform a diversity of on-site assemblies within the sector of industrial piping, general maintenance up to turn key projects of upgrades, revamping and debottlenecking projects. Staff is the primary resource of a professional practise. A dedicated core staff is supplemented by retained contract staff when required. In carrying out projects for clients, a detailed working knowledge of various E.N. and ASME standards are incorporated within our ISO 9001 procedures and applied. A project leader will follow-up the process, manufacturing and erection on site from the beginning to the end, ensuring the maximum optimisation and assuming all the time the responsibility. Due to the companys open organisation structure, the direct management of Decometa guarantees a high quality product and a topnotch service. All our employees have been educated in accordance to VCA safety rules.

Petrochemical and chemical industry has been for many years the crucial field of decometas activities. We have designed, fabricated many facilities in this field for well known leading companies.

Audits, within the sector of Air cooled heat Exchangers, are required to improve the process performance and reliability of our air cooled system. Decometa has the expertise to identify areas in your industrial air cooling process where improvements can be made. The source of an air cooled heat exchanger failure or poor performance can start on the designer drafting board. The way the installation is manufactured, installed and overhauled can contribute to the performance condition of the machine. The user may not have control over these steps; however understanding of the potential problems can lead to future changes. Our assessment program will help improving the equipment performance and reliability. The maintenance costs and energy usage can also be reduced.

Our assessment program will help improving the equipment performance and reliability. The maintenance costs and energy usage can also be reduced. The process condition of the air cooled heat exchanger (ACHE) will be audited with the help of additional techniques for airflow measurements, pressure drop readings, strobe analyses and thermographs. Simulations of the cooling or condensation process will be performed with use of in house developed software programs with our own extended and optimized database for calculating the air side pressure loss.
