Ipsen, Inc. has received an order from GE Energy for four large TurboTreater furnaces. The furnaces, which are being manufactured and tested at Ipsen’s Illinois facility, will be used for maintaining precision components from GE’s rapidly expanding land-based turbine business. The working volume of each furnace exceeds 120 ft3 and includes a highly flexible load configurator for optimizing part throughput.

A key factor in the order was delivery speed, as two of the furnaces will be shipped within three months. Ipsen maintains manufacturing plants in Rockford, Ill.; Souderton, Pa.; Kleve, Germany; Calcutta, India; and Shanghai, China.
