WALK-IN OVENS


 

For annealing, sintering, precipitation hardening, burn-off or any other high temperature processing of large or numerous parts. Constructed with an isolated inner oven to eliminate heat transfer and leakage at seams commonly found in standard panel construction. Designed and constructed for long, hard, continuous use with the temperature uniformity required for consistent results at elevated temperatures.

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.

All Models
— 208 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— 230 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— 460 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— Other electrical characteristics available

Exclusive construction is far superior to commonly used panel construction. Consists of an isolated inner oven completely surrounded by insulation to eliminate heat transfer from through metal and hot air leakage at panel seams. Insulated floor standard. Trilite Green enamel painted aluminized steel exterior.

Electric Models
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 heating element contactors 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 on all models. The 1200°F models have a heat chamber high limit control.

Gas Models
— 1,000 BTU natural gas at 6" water column pressure, 1" NPT inlet
— Other gas characteristics available

Control panel as detailed above and safety devices as listed on the front of this bulletin. A 325 CFM powered forced exhauster is included up to 700,000 BTU/HR; at 800,000 BTU/HR a 650 CFM exhauster is included. Both exhausters have 6" outlets. Automatic pre-ignition purge period and push button electric ignition contributes to ease of operation. Modulating gas burner is protected with electronic flame safety relay.
