East Troy, WI – May 23, 2016 -- Wisconsin Oven Corporation announced the shipment of one (1) natural direct gas fired three (3) zone conveyor oven with cool down to a leading supplier of flooring products. The conveyor oven will be used for curing adhesive on parts at a rate of 350 parts per hour.
The curing conveyor oven was designed with three (3) heating zones and one (1) cooling zone. This design provides an optimal cure of adhesive on the parts. Each zone includes a personnel access door on the side of the oven for ease of access during maintenance and service. The curing oven has a maximum temperature rating of 600°F and total work chamber dimensions of 5’0” W x 45’0” L x 1’0” H.
Guaranteed temperature uniformity of ±10 at 400° F was verified through a temperature profile test using measurements from 30” in from each opening, in a stabilized oven. An infrared pyrometer monitors the part temperature at the exit of both the final heating and the cooling zone. If the product temperatures exceed its setting, an alarm will sound as a result. The conveyor oven is rated for Class A use as defined by NFPA 86 with a solvent rating of 0.14 gallons per hour.
“We strive to design our equipment to provide the best quality part results for our customers. In this case three heating zones followed by a cool down zone resulted in the highest quality cure for their product while the conveyor system maximized their production rate.” – Gene Vetter, Application Engineer
