About Baker Furnace
Baker Furnace, Inc. was established in Southern California in 1980. The original business provided consumable supplies and crucible furnaces for the metal melting industry. Furnaces designed and manufactured by Baker Furnace quickly earned a reputation for quality engineering and durable construction. Thirty-five years later, Baker crucible furnaces are still in operation in the punishing environments typically found in a metal foundry.
In late 1990 Baker Furnace drew up designs for a new type of high-temperature equipment to be used in the emerging pollution control industry. The first unit, a 100 CFM trailer mounted thermal oxidizer, was delivered in 1991. Like our crucible furnaces, Baker oxidation systems quickly gained a reputation for quality engineering and manufacturing. The "first" oxidizer came back to the Baker shop in 2002 for reconditioning and left having needed only paint and a slight "tune-up." As of 2015, this unit is currently in the field entering its 24th year of almost continuous service.
The engineers at Baker Furnace are responsible for several innovations that have been widely copied in the industry. Thermal units convertible to catalytic operation with a drop in catalyst module and a control schematic introducing dilution air as a function of hydrocarbon concentrations (LEL) were originally engineered by Baker Furnace.
In addition to equipment innovations, Baker Furnace, Inc. also laid new trails in the area of regulatory permitting. We received the first Certified Equipment Permit issued by the SCAQMD for a thermal/catalytic oxidation system. We also strategically sought a number of third party approvals and authorizations such as AGA, UL, Los Angeles County Fire Department and Los Angeles Building and Mechanical.
