Baker Furnace Musings on Industrial Furnaces, Ovens, and Oxidizers

January 25, 2018

2017 was a great year for Baker Furnace – we moved to a new, larger location in Brea, California, and equipped it with a 10-ton overhead crane, welding machines, and plasma cutter. The new location is already helping us fill more orders than ever before. In fact, we think 2018 may end up being one of our best years yet.

Many exciting opportunities are coming our way in the upcoming year, and we look forward to detailing each opportunity in our blogs. We will also discuss a number of topics that are important to you, your business, and the community in which you live.

The finishing industry continually needs to remove paint or powder coatings from metal hardware or equipment used during the process. Powder coating lines use hooks and racks to transfer products through the application and curing process. These items become coated in the paint and periodically need to be cleaned. Burn out/burn off ovens make easy work of removing and stripping paint and powder coatings from the fixtures used for finishing processes.

This month as we celebrate Earth Day there is an increased focus on eco-friendly initiatives around the globe. The worldwide use of electronics has continued to rapidly increase year over year. The replacement time of electronics has decreased as consumers swap out their old devices for new technology the minute it becomes available. This results in excessive electronic waste in need of recycling. While electronic recycling centers have been popping up all over the country, most electronics are still being thrown away in the trash.
