Hearth Rigs

Furnace hearths are most commonly found in steel producing operations. Winkle hearth rigs are designed to lift furnace hearths in and out of service for routine maintenance requirements.

Our hearth rig assemblies feature reliable constructions for proper rotation and leveling of the lifting device for proper removal and installation of the hearth. Winkle hearth rigs are also engineered and manufactured to withstand the tough application demands of steel producing operations.
