Electric Convection Batch Ovens for Curing Hydrophobic Coating on Aerospace Glass
INTEK was contacted by a major supplier of aerospace components to design a unique gas-fired batch oven with high velocity air. The parts would be hung on rolling racks and multiple racks would be placed in the oven simultaneously. Part temperatures must be held uniformly to within +/- 10°F. The challenge was made even worse by the fact that a very large water pipe feeding the plant sprinkler system reduced head room drastically. The solution was to make the oven with double doors providing very wide access for the large number of racks. The gas burner and recirculating blower were side mounted to clear the overhead restrictions.
- Maximum temperature 200°F +/-5°F
- Rear heater/blower housing mounting location due to low ceiling height
- Digital Temperature Controller with Timer
