CG Thermal Obtains AirBTU Division

June 28, 2022
The acquisition follows a five-year exclusive technical sales and marketing contract that already existed between the two companies.

CG Thermal LLC of Twinsburg, Ohio, a provider of mass and heat transfer offerings and custom-built process equipment, announces the acquisition of AirBTU’s Thermal and Engineering Division located in Columbus Ohio. The acquisition follows the five-year exclusive technical sales and marketing contract that already existed between the two companies.

AirBTU historically has focused on sulfuric acid production and regeneration industries, as well as CO2 capture, energy storage and energy recovery processes. AirBTU reportedly is also a consultant for high temperature piping applications. Their main product is a highly engineered, proprietary custom-designed high temperature gas to gas recuperator, known in the industry as the AirBTU Variable Pitch Radial Recuperator (VPRR).

The design and operating experience of AirBTU in high temperature applications adds to CG Thermal’s ability to service existing customers and emerging markets, according to the company. CG Thermal is a full-service engineering and equipment manufacturer that historically concentrates on applications requiring harsh and corrosive process streams. Their technical offerings include highly corrosion resistant heat exchangers, vessels and columns as well as heat transfer process design services.

CG Thermal VP of Technical Sales & Engineering Joan Bova says she believes this is a great acquisition for CG Thermal, AirBTU and the customers they work with. In a press release from the company, Bova says, “Over the past three years we have been able to see the major value that AirBTU designs into each project with their exceptional ‘out-of-the-box’ engineering approach to arrive at custom designs that outperform existing designs.”
