Union Chill Mat Company was incorporated in 1946. The original product was the “chill mat” which was used in the steel mills to help cool the steel after it was produced.
Realizing the vulnerability of a single product line, the company developed and manufacturered the famous Red Rocket heater. The Red Rocket is a radiant spot heater that has been a mainstay in steel mills. Its 360′ radiant heat helps heat the workers without heating objects in the mills.
The Clayton Fan also was designed and incorporated into the UCMC line to furnish steel mills with heavy-duty industrial man-cooler fans. Its heavy-duty design helps circulate the air as well as cool portions of the mills.
To meet demand for portable clean heat, the Ultramatic was developed. This is an indirect-fired heater ranging from 300,000 to 2MM BTUH. It is mounted either on wheels or a trailer and can come with a generator or as a heater itself. This line opened the customer base to construction companies, paint companies, special events, aircraft manufacturers, power plants, and the military to name a few.
In the 1980’s several large aircraft customers who already used the Ultramatic had requested trailer mounted air-conditioning that could be moved around the fuselage of the airplanes being manufactured. UCMC developed a portable air conditioner – the A/CTM – that is used in almost every facet of industry. UCMC manufactures systems from 1 ton to 50 tons of air conditioning.
Along with industrial applications, the A/CTM is very popular for temperature control in special events. Tents, temporary and permanent structures can be cooled or heated by the A/CTM.
UCMC remains experts in temperature control after 55 years of business. As a manufacturer we offer options to purchase, rent, lease, or refurbish industrial HVAC equipment.
