The only things certain in life, Benjamin Franklin is thought to have said, are death and taxes. True enough, although given that he also said “beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy,” perhaps good beer should be added into the mix! The United States is good proof of this, as the American brewing industry is on the rise. In June 2014, for example, more than 3,000 breweries operated across the country. Moreover, most Americans live very close (within 10 miles) to a brewery. This fact would make Ben Franklin very happy, as well as many of the other Founding Fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who brewed their own beer at Mount Vernon and Monticello, respectively.
Breweries, along with distilleries, bakeries, manufacturers, and other kinds of industry, rely on industrial burners, melters, and furnaces to make their products. Melting furnace equipment, gas pipe burners, round melters, and Venturi burners are just a few of the pieces of equipment industries use, and there are plenty more where that came from.
Companies large and small, from the largest American breweries to the smallest local bakeries, depend on this equipment in their day-to-day operations. There are more than 2,800 commercial bakeries and 6,000 retail bakeries in the U.S. today. Without melting furnaces and gas burners, there’d be no way for bakers to make all the delicious pastries and bread that Americans are accustomed to. Without ring burners, many restaurants would not be able to cook meat, fish, chicken — really, most of everything! Americans may not think about melting furnace equipment much but the fact is without them and other kinds of equipment, American industries as a whole would look completely different.
