The Rose Corporation in Reading, Pennsylvania has fabricated numerous components for wastewater treatment plants including Stainless Steel 304 Frames from structural steel shapes, angles, channels, bars, and pipes.
Among the large-scale steel and aluminum components regularly manufactured at the Rose Corporation are 90-Ton melting kettles used to process lead into molten lead for the battery industry. Lead batteries are used for a vast number of purposes, but all batteries provide either starting, for instance starting a car, or deep cycle power used to power accessories like trolling motors on boats, winches or lights.
The Rose Corporation recently manufactured a 14 foot diameter and an 11 foot diameter replacement "Water Cooled Roof Ring" used on Electric Arc Furnaces. They are an essential part of the furnace process as a continuous flow of water enters the water jacket, circulates the entire ring and exits in order to keep the roof section of the Electric Arc Furnace cool (see illustration below).
- The inspection of hooks for any loose rivets, which we then removed and replaced if required.
- The removal of worn wear bars with Arc air.
- Forming new high strength (A514) wear bars to fit hook shape.
- The replacement of worn wear bars with new bars, weld and inspect new welds.
The Rose Corporation has repaired a number of Ladles that are used to pour molten metal in large manufacturing “Steel Mills” and Foundry processes. These Ladles are prone to damage from the heat of the molten metal within them. Several of these Ladles had their Refractory Lining fail, resulting in their shells being damaged.
A local specialty steel mill that makes stainless steel contracted with The Rose Corporation to repair an AOD vessel. We originally manufactured this 50,000-lb. vessel in 1998, along with two other identical vessels. After years of using the AOD Vessel under extreme heat conditions, the center of the main body bulged out of round by as much as 3-inches, making it impossible to fit into the trunnion ring that supports it.
