Every industry wants to have improved efficiency and reduced production costs. This is what conveyor ovens are specifically designed for. Using this type of oven decreases the heating time process by utilizing a higher temperature. They are used for various applications such as drying, curing, and tempering. Various industries have considered integrate this equipment into their continuous production lines such as in the case of the automobile, fiber optics, printing, and aerospace industries.
First of all, the central goal of conveyor ovens during the heating process is to improve heat distribution among the products being cured. This can be further enhanced by placing those items on a mineral wool batt mounted on a heavy aluminum steel gauge. This way, a more uniform temperature on the metal components and the air can be obtained. In addition, the conveyor belt inside the oven enables the continuous curing of the products as they pass through it. In case the products to be cured need more processing time, a longer conveyor belt can be utilized. Even heat distribution within the oven is achieved through the air being pumped all over the processed products.
The ease of using the temperature controls on a conveyor oven leads to consistent results. The operating temperature usually ranges up to 600°F. In advanced industrial applications, infrared systems are integrated into the convyor oven for a more efficient heating and monitoring system. Conveyor ovens also come in various types such as chain conveyors, Ferris wheel, spindle, wash-draw furnace, and more. Best of all, you also have the option for customization to make sure that you get what you really need for your heat treating or curing process.
