Trent Celebrates 75 Years

July 30, 2002
Trent, Inc. is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. On July 27, 1927, Trent was incorporated as a manufacturer of electrically heated industrial process equipment and heating elements. Today, the company manufactures a broad product line, including ovens; furnaces; kettles; melters; plug heaters; heater racks; and cartridge, tubular, strip, immersion and fintube heaters. The innovative design of its Folded and Formed(R) heating element is the keystone of the company. It is an exposed ribbon type element with a greater cross-section mass than conventional coiled wire elements. A unique forming operation gives the self-supporting element a structural rigidity that prevents sag while operating at optimal high temperatures. It is also more efficient, with a larger area of the element exposed and directed at the work chamber.
