Hot Box Transportation System

5 Benefits of the Onex Hot Ingot Transportation System

Hot Box Hits The Road

Onex produces an engineered Hot Box to keep steel ingots hot during transportation between facilities. Our hot box allows steel ingots to be transported from an producer to a processing operation while maintaining the metal temperature. Onex’s hot box is a safer, lower maintenance alternative to competitors’ product.


Maintain Ingot Temperature

In our competitor’s hot box, the ingot lost 150F in temperature in transit.  The same load in Onex’s HIT system lost 50F in ingot temperature while the hot box provided more protection for the truck trailer.

Greater Payload Per Shipment

Our Hot Box features a lighter weight design than our competitor’s.  Since the hot box weighs less, the client is able to increase the weight of the ingots being transported while staying below the DOT gross weight requirement.

Shorter Setup Time

The Hot Box features tie down points incorporated into the design allowing secure loading while reducing driver setup time between loads. The design also includes location pins to help accurately lower box reducing damage to the box and insulation.


The Hot Box system features an insulated safety lining protected by a steel plate.  A primary working lining sits on top of the steel plate.  Should the working lining be compromised, the truck bed will not be damaged because of the insulating lining and an air gap between the Hot Box and the truckbed.

Low Maintenance

The rounded lid design mitigates the accumulation of snow and reduces corrosion caused by road salt.
