Robert Mellen


The Mellen Company was founded in 1966 by one man who believed in creating high temperature furnaces that could maximize work time and minimize uncontrolled temperature variations. Mr. Mellen, an avid scientist, combined his years of experience with constant research to develop top-of-the-line products. Through his diligence, he created the patented Mellen EDG furnace, patented thermal distortion free sight glass, and many others.


Today, Mellen combines years of research with computer-aided design and stringent quality control. We strive to provide our customers with well-researched and extensively engineered products. We test and develop new products using the Mellen Laboratory. Inside the lab, we test for element life, longevity, and maximum use. We experiment with components, atmosphere, and materials with the goal of maximizing furnace life and quality.

At Mellen, each furnace is carefully inspected to meet our high quality standards. In addition to our standard line of furnaces, we create custom furnaces designed to your specifications.

All Mellen products are made in the U.S.A. and are available to ship around the world!
