Schniewindt in marine technology

Heating technology solutions from Schniewindt are crucial in onshore and offshore plants as well as on ships. Customised solutions enable efficient heat treatment of various media and support refineries worldwide with effective corrosion protection. Our air- and water-cooled braking resistors always function reliably, even under extreme conditions - for example on oil platforms.

Drive technology

Wherever large diesel engines are used, electrical preheating is an elementary component of the overall system. For example, heavy fuel oil is heated on ships. Schniewindt also manufactures various series in the field of resistance technology, which are used specifically in drive technology.

Air conditioning

With the implementation of the "Giso sealing process" - which gives Schniewindt tubular heaters an insulation resistance of several giga-ohms - Schniewindt heating coils are an integral part of many air conditioning systems in shipbuilding.


In safety-relevant shipbuilding, Schniewindt is certified as a Q1 supplier to Deutsche Bahn AG. Individual heating components are approved worldwide by various maritime certification organisations.

Electric heating coils for air conditioning system manufacturers, convector heaters (also for use in potentially explosive environments), tubular and screw-in heaters for separation systems are just as much a part of the product portfolio as heating flanges or brake resistors.


Separators are generally used to separate different substances (e.g. seawater/oil) from each other. In many cases, appropriate temperature control of the system is essential. Schniewindt also offers the optimum solution for demanding combinations of substances in the form of screw-in flange heaters and continuous-flow heaters.
