EHS Furnace Design, Fabrication and Capabilities
Hotfoil-EHS has extensive furnace design and fabrication experience in the heat treating industries. From small, low-throughput furnaces, to much larger high yeild furnaces, to rail-driven furnaces designed to move back and forth over the materials being heated, Hotfoil-EHS Design Engineers and Fabrication Shop has done it all.
Along the way, there have been many furnace engineering discoveries. For instance, Hotfoil-EHS discovered that crane wheels and their drive systems are by far the easiest way to move large furnaces. Also, for some designs, incorporating a hydraulic lifting system that lifts the entire furnace during transport prevents insulation from dragging along the hearth. Concepts and features like these are what differentiate Hotfoil-EHS from the competition.
Furnaces, built in stainless steel or steel, are shipped in sections for easy, on-site assembly using only a small crane and fork lifts. Furnace sections bolt together with grade 8 bolts, which (as an option) may be welded. While insulation can be installed prior to shipment, it is strongly recommended to insulate after the furnace has been erected to prevent minor damage during assembly.
Along with our furnace work we also have a fabrication facility where we build custom furnaces and specialty frames for all industrial applications.
