Since 1978, Enervac Corporation's excellence in engineering, manufacturing and customer service has made the company a world leader in the manufacturing and development of processing and recovery systems for industrial liquids and gases.

Our broad range of custom-engineered equipment includes sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) gas servicing equipment, oil dehydrators, oil degasifiers, air and gas dryers, filtration systems, coolant and water-recycling and waste-minimization systems and related equipment. While we manufacture a broad range of standard products covering most capacities and processing demands, we take a uniquely innovative approach to engineering for specific customer installations.

Through the development of high efficiency, cost-effective engineered equipment, Enervac helps solve one of the most important issues facing industry: resource recovery and environmental responsibility.

The majority of equipment Enervac sells is used for maintaining and servicing high-voltage industrial equipment, and can be used in any country with an electric utility.

Enervac has extensive experience marketing and selling equipment all over the world, including Europe, but has limited experience marketing in Greece. Enervac's objective for this mission is to assess export markets for its products and to meet with local distributors familiar with marketing to our target sector.
