Custom designed for a leading manufacturer of diesel engines, the Gruenberg industrial truck- in oven removes moisture from diesel truck exhaust filters after they have undergone a “green” cleaning process to remove particulate matter. The 1200 °F industrial oven features a high-volume, 18,000-cfm, compound, horizontal-air-circulation system and accommodates a total product load of more than 1,400 pounds.
New Columbia, PA – December 4, 2015: A leading manufacturer of diesel engines asked Thermal Product Solutions to design a custom industrial oven that would remove moisture from exhaust filters used in diesel truck engines after the filters have undergone an environmentally friendly cleaning process to remove particulate matter. The insulated, stainless-steel and cordierite-ceramic filters are dipped in a liquid-acid cleaning solution to remove the particulates before being placed in the truck-in oven for drying at 1200 °F.
The custom Gruenberg truck-in oven features a high-volume, 18,000-cfm, compound, horizontal-air-circulation system and offers 144 cubic feet of internal workspace. It accommodates two, three-tiered, stainless-steel hand trucks, each carrying 12 filter assemblies for a total product load of 24 filters and more than 1,400 pounds. Before drying, each filter assembly weighs approximately 60 pounds.
With a full product load, the natural-gas-fired oven ramps from an ambient air temperature of 70 °F to the customer’s chosen operating temperature of 1200 °F in three hours. The filters soak at that temperature for one hour, after which time heating is discontinued. The industrial oven then cools the product load to 125 °F with the help of an exhaust system that operates at 2,000 cfm. The unit has a maximum temperature of 1250 °F and is constructed of a heavy-duty, welded steel frame. The unit features a 309L stainless-steel chamber liner and includes eight inches of Fiberex insulation.
