Yates Industries - Handling the Heat

Yates Handling the Heat Press Release

St. Clair Shores, MI

For over 40 years Yates Industries has been practicing, improving and providing high performance hydraulic cylinder products and services to the steel industry. During that period, Yates' team of dedicated professionals, have become the benchmark of the industry.

In an environment where molten steel is heated to temperatures exceeding 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit, there is no room for error. The hydraulic cylinders used in the production of steel products are subjected to extreme conditions. It is critical for the safety of the employees and protection of the equipment that the cylinders used in the casting process perform up to expectations.

Yates repairs and upgrades cylinders using only high quality parts like induction hardened bronze rod bearings, chrome rods and bronze overlay pistons — which are all compatible with fire-retardant seals. Yates can also design cylinders with electronic feedback devices like linear displacement transducers and proximity sensors. In addition, Yates offers a spare cylinder storage program, which enables a company to have replacement parts available for immediate delivery.

From Sault Ste. Marie to the Gulf of Mexico and beyond, Yates Industries – with offices in St. Clair Shores, Michigan and Decatur, Alabama – is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company offering quality high performance cylinders, the largest most complete repair facility in the country and 24/7 emergency repair service.
