I am starting to get responses to the e-mails I sent. A few have said
"we don't make that." One company responded to say "We make induction
heating equipment, if this is what your client requires we can be of
service and would like to have you provide the details of the
application." Do you want
induction heating? Can you give me some details to ascertain whether
is a match? Thanks. cath-ga

Hi jcljr,

so far I have heard from one company that definitely has what you
one that probably does and one that may.The last needs more
from you. Do you want me to wait another day 'til more responses come
back, or is this enough? I'm assuming your application is industrial,
since I haven't heard back from you. cath-ga

Dear jcljr,

Since I haven’t heard from you, I’m going to go ahead and hazard
an answer based on the assumption that you are trying to acquire
an industrial furnace. The short answer to your question is that
this is something of a custom item, and that you can specify what
you want. If indeed your application is industrial, you would probably
be better off with steel heat exchangers than aluminum. 

I sent out about 90 e-mails to furnace manufacturers on the
list at (see bottom of answer). The horizontal duct
furnace you specify  apparently can be obtained from several

Tarrico Corporation e-mailed back and said, “This is a unit we
produce.” Tarrico can make the heat exchangers  out of whatever
material you want.  I spoke with the President of this company and he
said, “Send ‘em on over to us.” Here’s his company's contact info:

Another company that answered in the affirmative is Trent, Inc.  John
Fornay, the Sales Order Manager gave this company description and
contact information:

"We are a custom manufacturer of industrial ovens, furnaces and
heating elements.  Our Plug Heaters (Air Duct heaters) are designed in
compact packaged units for efficient, controlled heating of forced air
recirculating systems for heating ducts, annealing and tempering
furnaces, and baking and drying ovens

These heaters are made with a rugged welded carbon, alloy or stainless
steel framework.  Into this framework slide in porcelain retainers are
used to hold our Folded and Formed® ribbon type heating elements which
are made from Nichrome (80-20 nickel chrome).  Multiple banks of these
F&F® heater racks are assembled, wired and mounted in a self contained

temperatures are 750° or 1350°F.

Please visit our web site ( and go to plug heaters
for more details.

Please provide more information regarding the furnace configuration
including electrical parameters, temperature, size, etc., so we can
configure a furnace for you.

Thank you.

ATV Technology sent me a data sheet on their 603 model. It was a
attachment that would not paste into this space, but you can contact
them for further information on the 603.

Here’s the response from Corbett Industries:

We manufacture many varieties of heating equipment for industrial
applications.  However, since we are a custom manufacturer, everything
make is to the customer's specification.  If you have more details, we
be better able to determine what they require.  If you want more

An e-mail from the Radyne Corporation also expressed interest:

Radyne makes induction heating equipment - if this is what your client
requires we can be of service and would like to have you provide the
of the application.

Thank you.

By the way, one company that does not make furnaces, but makes thermal
ceramics commented, “Most industrial heat exchangers operate at
temperatures too high for aluminum. Some of them use specialty steels,
while others have to use ceramic materials. There is quite a wide
range of heat exchanger designs for a wide variety of applications.”

This is the registry of  202 industrial furnace manufacturers that I
found at

I e-mailed all the companies that had the box to check for
(five at a time.) I didn’t contact those that had to be contacted
so they are still a possible source.

There is another index of industrial furnaces companies, at Industrial

I hope this information satisfies your need. I will probably receive
more responses in the next few days, and I’ll save them for you, if
you need
more.  Let me know if you do need them, or require further help!
