Batch Ovens 101: Their Benefits and Functions

June 30, 2017

Thermal curing and processing applications possess a variety of load capacities and heating requirements. Batch ovens are the most effective heating and pre-heating solutions, and can produce extreme temperatures of heat. Preheated batch ovens are commonly used for the preparation of metal, plastic, wood and fiberboards for advanced industrial products.

Batch ovens are ideal for:

Sterilizing and curing

Drying, aging and annealing

Tempering

There are various classes of batch ovens, these include:

Burn-in ovens

Cleaning process ovens

Reach-in ovens

Laboratory oven

Batch ovens are crafted with various features. These features enhance their usability, heating production and operational temperature range. Therefore, when you buy a batch oven for industrial use, you need to pay close attention to each of these features in order to ensure that your product works efficiently.

Factors to take into account when buying an oven for industrial use include:

Operational temperature

Level of insulation against heat losses

The Oven’s Durability

Heating medium (gas or electricity)

Uniformity of air flow within the plenums of the oven

Availability of service warranties from the manufacturer (or retailer)

Meticulous and accurate testing of the engineering design is also required. This ensures that the design meets the various industrial and commercial standards of production.  The manufacturer’s engineering expertise is often exhibited through the physical design specifications, user regulation fixtures, the presence of heat monitoring and control systems, the availability of the right switches, and other electrical fixtures. Additional testing should be done in order to ensure that the oven effectively performs within the specified manufacturer range of temperatures. Upon installation, the oven’s optimal performance metrics should also be evaluated in order to ensure that it functions normally and within the desired levels. Expert guidance is critical at this phase as it facilitates the evaluation of technical operational variables. At Eastman Manufacturers, we guarantee customer satisfaction and exceptional service.
