SH 2017 was a truly global affair with 61 countries represented – including all world-market leaders – as they launched their latest products at the 260,000sq m show.

Some 200,114 visitors (196,777 in 2015) made their way to Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre to discover the latest innovations and trends. At the same time, ISH increased its level of internationality: 64 percent of exhibitors (2015: 61 percent) and 40 percent of visitors (2015: 39 percent) came from outside Germany.

“ISH is growing and becoming increasingly international. The indices are outstanding and the mood in the exhibition halls was excellent. We are extremely pleased with the results of the event,” said Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Messe Frankfurt.

The five percent increase in the number of international visitors to 80,045 (from 75,819 in 20151) was underpinned by the position of ISH as the world’s leading trade fair for the

sector. The biggest visitor nations were China, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Poland, Belgium, Austria and Spain. Top marks were awarded by all participants for the high standard of the fair. In particular, the large number of new contacts made was a source of great satisfaction on the exhibitor side and the overall rating remains on a very high level at over 80 percent.

The exhibitors also saw the economic outlook in a positive light with 88 percent saying it is satisfactory to good. In the case of German exhibitors, this value was even higher at 93 percent. No less impressive was the level of satisfaction on the visitor side with a potentially record-beating overall rating of 97 percent.

The sanitation, heating and air conditioning installation trade represented the biggest group of visitors.

The next ISH will be held in Frankfurt am Main from 12 to 16 March 2019.

Largest boiler from Bosch was a show highlight

largest product of its portfolio – the double- flame tube boiler. The boiler is an impressive 6m tall,


reaches an output of up to 55,000kg of steam per hour and weighs up to 120 tons. Due to its constant efficiency in all operating points, this steam boiler is especially used by energy suppliers and large industrial companies.

Bosch presented several innovations at ISH Energy, for example, the compressed air and heat system (CA). While conventional compressors are driven by electric motors and need expensive electric power for this, the CA from Bosch generates the compressed air with a biogas or natural gas motor in a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly way. In addition, the free waste heat of the motor and the

compressor can be used in the heating circuit.

Another major topic on the Bosch stand were the new high-tech controls for professional solutions, used in industrial boilers and combined heat and power plants (CHP).

Bosch showcased the Control 8000, an innovative control device for heating boilers with intuitive touch control and large colour display.

A highlight of the stand was the 360-degree virtual reality station. Visitors could virtually experience real boiler houses with their individual modules and components.

Exhibition was a huge success for ELCO Heating Solutions

Solutions which exhibited its latest commercial boilers, hot water


generators and CHP units. The ELCO stand proved particularly popular with visitors. Stand out products included the new TRIGON XL floor standing boiler and the VARION C-POWER CHP unit – both recently launched in the UK.

The theme of the event for ELCO illustrated the company’s commitment to engineering excellence, including the use of stainless steel in all of its heat

SH 2017 was another successful exhibition for ELCO Heating

exchangers. This was highlighted with a dedicated wall showing the complex heat exchanger designs, which contribute to ELCO’s high performance levels throughout its product portfolio.

ELCO UK Managing Director, Ian Bradley, said: “I’ve been attending ISH for over 25 years and every time it proves to be an invaluable exhibition for the commercial heating industry. It’s a great occasion to introduce new and existing clients to the ELCO brand, so they can understand our commitment to quality and providing premium products for the UK market.”

Fire demo highlights the value of ventilation system in safe evacuation

IG Air Handling took the opportunity to promote its own product label CAIROX and at the same time the company’s supported vision: ´Improving air because we care´. Along with a presentation of the various services that SIG Air Handling offers, a scale model of a parking garage ventilation system drew big crowds. The model was used to demonstrate live how an underground parking fire develops, and how the


ventilation system can contribute to implementing a safe evacuation. It proved to be a must-see for every visitor. For the occasion, artist Jean-Luc Moerman pimped out the SIG Air Handling products with unique tattoo-like decorations, which generated lots of positive feedback. VISIT OUR WEBSITE:
