    Improvements were recently completed on our existing 20 ft. wide x 20 ft.high x 60 ft. long, car bottom, induction furnace, increasing the load capacity of an individual heat four-fold, from 100 tons to 400 tons. These improvements included both structural and drive system upgrades, as well as a new refractory lining for the car. This additional weight capacity provides our pressure vessel customers with a number of benefits, including tighter dimensional control during post-weld-heat-treatment. The additional capacity also improves our heat treating efficiency of plate and other products.

    Our custom made pressure filtration vessels

    Posted: 6/20/2011
    As a result of the damage caused by the March 11, 2011 earthquake & tsunami to Tokyo Electric Power Company's (TEPCO) Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, plant operators used seawater to cool the reactors. The process, used to remove the resulting radioactive contaminants, requires pumping seawater through a series of pressure vessels, each containing proprietary media designed to filter the radioactive elements. Working under an emergency contract, Eaton procured steel from around the U.S., provided engineering services & fabricated (100) of these vessels. The vessels are composed of a total of (400) cylindrical shielding jackets, each having a combined thickness of (7) inches and an OD of just under (5) ft.. The contract was completed in just over (5) weeks.
