LEWCO, Inc. recently manufactured a custom High-Performance Drum Oven for a petrochemical company in Thailand. The oven is steam heated and is rated for a maximum operating temperature of 250°F.
The oven is specifically designed to heat (4) 55 gallon drums and features a rear mounted steam heater box with a high efficiency circulating fan to evenly distribute airflow throughout the workspace. Electronic temperature controls actuate a proportional steam valve and solenoid valve to control temperature and provide over-temperature protection. Installation in an electrically hazardous location required that the entire electrical system be rated Class I, Division II service. As an additional safety feature the circulating fan was upgraded to AMCA (Air Movement and Control Association) “C” spark resistance.
LEWCO manufactures a full line of High-Performance Drum & Tote Ovens suitable for heating flammable and combustible materials. Optional NFPA 86, Class A rating is available. To learn more, speak to a LEWCO Applications Engineer today!
