KTE is trying to bring hydrogen-fired multi tube once-through boiler to the market, equipped with low NOx hydrogen-fired burner which we jointly developed with Kawasaki Heavy Industries. We are also working to expand hydrogen utilization technology to absorption chiller.
Those research and development are being conducted at our “A.A. Labo” which was established in 2013.
Since our founding in 1896, KTE has been delivering heat source (energy) supply equipment that were essential for Japan's core industries.
Through those years of our experience, KTE dedicates to provide high-quality products by the reliable manufacturing methods.
KTE takes great pride in our superior welding technology. For example, over many years, we have won awards at competitions for expert welders in Japan.
Our welders achieve highly-reliable quality by inheriting skilled craftsmanship from their predecessors.
