backSTORY:   "The company manufactures powdered food flavoring. This heater box was to connect to a processor that would transfer the liquid flavoring into this unit that would send heated air into the chamber and evaporate the liquid leaving only the powdered flavoring behind.  The project was cancelled and this heater box was never completed.  The unit has a Cyclomax LoNox Burner on it.  The machine that you have was valued at $50,000 in its incomplete state. This unit is a 9,000 CFM heater box." - Jena

FOR SALE:  We have this heater box for sale.  L: Den

How We Work:  BEFORE:  "We have a full rink set up of the tempered glass and between approximately 50-60 sections of dasher board..The quicker you can get them out the better deal we can make.  Let me know when you can get them and what you would be willing to offer?"  - Jeremy  Jeremy accepted our cash offer, and we had the equipment removed within days!  AFTER:  A couple of weeks ago, we sold the hockey dasher boards to a recreations facility in Canada.  We love those Canadians, eh!!!

* A.C.E.  This acronym stands for AttributesCharacteristicsEngineering.  We use this acronym to tell you a little about a used material and what qualities it has in hopes that someone can find a "repurpose" for it.  Asked another way...what did the material do in it's 1st life that might help identify a very different, 2nd life for it?
