About Kiekens-DSH

Kiekens was founded on 1 May, 1907 by Mr. H. Th. Kiekens in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The company focused on manufacturing fans for blacksmiths. The fans replaced the bellows and the link to industrial ventilation was made.

In the 1960s, Kiekens, in collaboration with Shell and Technical University, developed the first desuperheater, which enabled the controlled lowering of the temperature of steam. Manufacturing desuperheaters for Shell, started for the plants in The Netherlands and later also desuperheaters were supplied for other Dutch Refinery and Petrochemical plants. In the 1970s Shell also ordered desuperheaters for Shell Singapore plants and since then Kiekens started to supply their desuperheaters worldwide.

Currently Kiekens-DSH supplies their thousands of desuperheaters in more than 100 countries.
