SIAT was founded in 1947 during a time of
great opportunities and expectations, a time when the entire
nation was working energetically to put behind the disastrous
economic and social situation left by the Second World War. The
birth and reconstruction of new urban centres and a new
industrial panorama were the context in which a group of
engineers joined forces to offer their experience and skill and
make a solid contribution to the country’s development.
During this period, thanks to an innate
passion for thermo-mechanical technology SIAT began developing a
variety of equipment, including axial unit heaters, connectors,
heat exchangers, water heaters, coil-type water heaters,
marine-type boilers, and other products.
This wide range of ideas and products were
designed to simplify and improve life.
In the early 1950s the company began
designing and building on a large scale thermal equipment
specifically for industrial applications. This step marked the
birth of multi-tube boilers for hot water and steam, diathermic
oil boilers, forerunners of the current model FIREPACK, and the
first thermal recovery boilers designated for metallurgical
In 1958, SIAT would build and distribute the
POWERMASTER under license from Orr & Sembower (PA - USA). It was
the first fully automatic, pressurised boiler, with modulating
burner powered by heavy naphtha and/or methane gas, that could
guarantee a high efficiency and designed in a single and compact
The early 1960s brought new, improved
generators and heat exchangers, which could be adapted to the
broadest requirements of the industrial and non-industrial
market. During these years, through a partnership with the
Polytechnic University of Milan, the company brought out
CALORPACK, the first SIAT wetback fire-tube boiler. The
Calorpack quickly achieved results that would allow the company
to stimulate and meet the demands of a national and
international market by exceeding the already high standards
introduced by the POWERMASTER.
Later adjustments and evolutions in the
product, such as air pre-heaters and economizers, would lead to
an increase in efficiencies to reach today’s over 95%.
The experience and professionalism gained
over the years, combined with a continuous search for product
innovation and improvement, has made SIAT one of the most
historical and reliable manufacturers in Italy, a company that
stands out for its expertise in consulting, design and
construction of thermal equipment for industrial applications.
The RECOPACK generator, among the most recent
and appreciated applications, represents the perfect synthesis
of the know-how acquired from the production of over 4,000
fire-tube boilers and more than 15,000 heat exchangers.
But the excellence of SIAT does not lie
solely in the quality and reliability of the products; it is
concretely expressed in the attention towards customers and
their needs. In fact, SIAT has a history of performing constant
efforts in search of the best solution by establishing a
constructive, long-term relationship with customers and working
with passion, reliability and substance.
It is thanks to its history that SIAT is one
of today’s leaders in the production of heat generators and heat
