Coast Machinery Movers removed a 15’ diameter by 25’ tall furnace weighing in at 100,000 lbs. Due to the confined nature of the customers site there was no easy way to get it out of the building. Thinking outside the box Coast proposed a roof hatch solution that would allow both the existing furnace to be removed, and the future furnace to be installed without requiring a plant shutdown.

To accommodate the customer’s needs Coast provided a full package system including removing all existing connections to the furnace, constructing the roof hatch, removing the existing furnace, modifying and expanding the existing foundation, installing the new furnace system, and reconnecting the new furnace. This project involved multiple levels of detailed planning to coordinate all actions while functioning in an operational facility and maintain a strict adherence to safety standards.
