Acid Furnace Fabrication
Swanton Welding & Machining was approached by a chemical industry customer to fabricate a 125,000 lbs. acid furnace. We first drafted complete shop fabrication drawings for the furnace using AutoCAD software. We then used a variety of fabrication methods to complete the A516 grade 70 and A-36 grade steel furnace, including: drilling, rolling, laser cutting, plasma cutting, bending and piping. All other necessary hardware was cost-effectively procured from reliable outside sources. Before testing and inspecting the acid furnace, it was given a coat of inorganic zinc paint.
