INERT ATMOSPHERE OVENS


 

Inert atmosphere ovens for operation at up to 1250°F. Protect parts from oxidation using any non-flammable gas such as Nitrogen, Argon or Carbon Dioxide. Front-to-back horizontal air flow completely surrounds work on shelves or large parts placed directly on the optional reinforced work space bottom. Includes cooling jacket which can be equipped with optional cooling blower and automatic dampers. Installation of optional atmosphere purge solenoid, cooling blower and programmable temperature controller provides completely automatic sequencing.

†Accuracy as percent of controller span. Uniformity at 100°F below maximum temperature. Rise Time in minutes to 100°F below maximum temperature. Tests run with empty oven and minimum exhaust. Performance will vary with load and application. See Bulletin TC-920 for additional details.
STANDARD EQUIPMENT   Back to Top
All Models
— 208 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— 230 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— 460 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— Other electrical characteristics available

Each features completely wired, top 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. The 1250°F models have a heat chamber high limit controller.

Two (2) reinforced 100 lbs uniformly distributed load capacity, stainless steel wire shelves. Models IA and IB will hold seven(7) shelves on 3" centers; models IC and ID five(5) shelves on 6" centers.

 


Trilite Green enamel painted aluminized steel exterior. Insulated with 2" of 1900°F insulating block backed up with 1250°F industrial rockwool.

Inert atmosphere is introduced at blower shaft (1/2" NPT) and positive oven pressure maintained by inlet pressure regulator. Atmosphere flow indicated on 0-200 CFH flow meter. Oven pressure indicated on 0-5 inch water column pressure gauge. Continuously welded inner oven construction with compression fittings at wall penetrations maintains atmosphere integrity. Atmosphere outlet equipped with pressure relief which can be manually opened to increase inert gas flow for initial purge of air from oven. Adjustable positive latching door hardware and offset hinges assure positive door seal. The inner high temperature gasket seals directly against the door plug; outer atmosphere gasket seals against the front face of the oven.
