Raising (and Lowering) the Roof on an Aluminum Forge Furnace


ETTER Engineering does a lot of different things, which means a walk through the shop is always an interesting experience. On a recent walk, I spotted a few of our guys raising, and then lowering into place the roof on a massive aluminum forge furnace, one of two that ETTER is building for a customer. The furnace measures approximately twenty feet long by eight feet high, and is designed to reach an operating temperature of 1,000° – careful, or that pizza might get burned! Just kidding…

Stay tuned as the furnace production continues. With major fabrication completed, it’s now time to begin mounting controls, gas trains, and other details.

ETTER Engineering has been producing Custom Manufactured Solutions since 1940. If you have a combustion or process heating related project that no one else can figure out, give us a call – even if we haven’t done it before (which we probably have), we can handle the job!
