CABINET OVENS


 

For processes where eliminating particle contamination is required, such as sterilization, depyrogenation, curing and drying. These electrically heated ovens come in five sizes with features to provide a low particle count Class 100 atmosphere inside. Operating temperatures to 500°F with work space volumes ranging from 5 to 38.3 cubic feet. Exterior construction minimizes particle generation. Heavy duty units equally suited for pharmaceutical or industrial applications.

  CAUTION: OVENS PROCESSING COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL ARE REQUIRED BY NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION STANDARD 86 TO HAVE A FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM. IF FLAMMABLE SOLVENTS OR VAPORS ARE PRESENT IN AN OVEN, OSHA REQUIRES CONFORMANCE WITH NFPA 86 WHICH DEFINES OVENS FOR THESE APPLICATIONS AS CLASS A OVENS. A POWERED FORCED EXHAUSTER AND OTHER NON-STANDARD SAFETY EQUIPMENT MUST BE ADDED. SEE BULLETIN TC-940 AND CONSULT FACTORY.

These Class 100 ovens come in five sizes:
CLA-500 5.0 cubic feet, holds 4 shelves
CLB-500 13.5 cubic feet, holds 8 shelves
CLC-500 20.7 cubic feet, holds 8 shelves
CLD-500 29.3 cubic feet, holds 12 shelves
CLE-500 38.3 cubic feet, holds 16 shelves

They feature full horizontal air flow and adjustable opposed louvers on full coverage supply and return duct work.

Stainless steel (type 304, 2B finish) interior with continuously back-welded seams and easily removable interior duct work for cleaning. Recirculated air flow is continuously passed through a high temperature HEPA filter to remove particles. High temperature HEPA filter has stainless steel housing and is 99.97% efficient on 0.3 micron particles.

Each features completely wired, side access UL listed control panel enclosing terminals for incoming power, temperature controllers, push buttons and pilot lights. Motor starter and solid state heating element relay electrically interlocked to shut off heaters if power to blower is interrupted and to permit operation of blower without heat for cooling. Incoloy sheathed tubular heating elements. Exhaust outlet 4" diameter.

Mechanical enclosure covers recirculating blower motor, heating element terminal box, air flow safety switch and other components to provide continuous exterior surface for easy cleaning.

Outer door cover and control panel face constructed from #4 brushed finish, type 304 stainless steel. Aluminized steel exterior finished with white epoxy enamel paint.
