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

Inner oven floor reinforced for loading and equipped with removable grating. Oven top surface constructed of 1/4" steel plate and work space interior equipped with wear bars to prevent damage during loading. Automatic door opening mechanism consisting of solid steel shaft, bearings and air cylinder system. Requires 60 psig compressed air.

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. Exhaust outlet 4" diameter.


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. 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.

 

 


These electric or gas models come in four sizes. They feature full horizontal air flow with adjustable opposed louvers for balanced air flow. The horizontal air flow pattern allows heated air to pass between stacked parts for uniform heating. High volume recirculating blowers are specifically designed for heating heavy loads.

The removable grating on the oven floor protects the oven from impact during loading and distributes concentrated loads across the entire oven floor. The grating allows for air movement beneath the work for uniform processing.

The LA and LC Series have the heat chamber located to the rear of the work space. On the LB and LD Series, the heat chamber is located to the right side of the work space to position the supply and return duct work at the front and rear of the work space, respectively. This provides the shortest distance between ducts which minimizes the temperature differential across the work space.

1050°F Models Only
Insulated with 2" of 1900°F insulating block backed up with 1250° F industrial rockwool. 16 gauge aluminized steel work space interior; 304 stainless steel heat chamber interior with stainless steel recirculating blower. Gas models include stainless steel exhauster.
