Industrial Furnace is very excited to begin a new project in China. Pictured are workers unloading and assembling a Vertical Shaft Kiln Process Control System engineered by IFCO. Logistics for these parts as well as all related items for construction of this VSK are provided by the team at Industrial Furnace Company. Currently we have projects underway not only in the US, but also in Turkey, Greece, Ireland, Austria, Saudi Arabia, India and Canada.
IFCO has recently been providing more companies with complete system optimization for both Multiple Hearth Furnaces and Fluidized Bed Incinerators. The scope of services includes data gathering, visual inspections of current incinerators, operations staff interviews and monitoring, and a complete summary report of the findings. The summary report includes an assessment of the existing system and an evaluation of any process or configuration variations with regard to how they might negatively impact the
Plant’s operations and maintenance. The reports also address the level of effort and steps required to optimize the Incinerator to its peak performance levels and, if necessary, bring the equipment up to current standards and codes.
IFCO is proud to reach out to the Rochester Community and has provided support to many local organizations.
For the past 3 1/2 years, IFCO supported Steel Lillies, a non-profit group created in memory of Tiffany Lill to raise funds and awareness for Sarcoma/Cancer Research.
Max Lill, Jr. co-chaired a commitee that designed and built the Greater Rochester Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Monroe County was so thankful for his work that they named the entrance street to the Memorial "Max Lill Drive" in his honor.
For many years, the Lill Family has also supported Holy Childhood, a non-profit organization designed to assist those with with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

IFCO wants to wish its friends around the world happy holidays, and best wishes for a safe and successful 2015.
Industrial Furnace has experienced highs and lows through this past year. In May, we lost an important member of the IFCO family when Joe Midgett unexpectedly passed away. Joe was a leader of IFCO's process and intergration efforts. His expertise will be missed, but we will continue to provide the same great service that Joe always strived for.
Some highlights for this past year include entering into an international partnership for Shaft Kilns, expanding our presence worldwide, closing major projects, and starting new major projects. We continue to develop new services to better serve furnace owners and operators.
As we move forward in 2015, we are excited about working with customers to meet their needs, such as the new EPA standards.
In the Spring of 2009, Industrial Furnace Company signed an agreement to join forces with Technip/Dorr-Oliver to promote FluoSolids® Technology in the North America Municipal Incineration sector. This allows IFCO to use Technip’s experience and engineering power with Fluidized Beds, and merge it with their experience and history of dealing with municipalities in a way that will be beneficial to all parties involved. Technip will provide the engineering, associated equipment, and any technical support required. Industrial Furnace's field experience will be put to use for procurement and installation of the furnace at the customer's site.
