Walk-In Ovens

Walk in oven designed for continuous use BULLETIN



For paint baking, drying, preheating, annealing or any other heat processing of large or numerous parts at temperatures to 750°F. Oven size conveniently accommodates materials handling equipment. Choice of either combination or full horizontal air flow in either rear or top mounted heat chamber configurations. Designed and constructed for long, hard, continuous use.

Standard Truck Ovens from Grieve meet the requirements of National Fire Protection Association Standard 86, Industrial Risk Insurers, Factory Mutual and OSHA standards. For some applications, such as those involving flammable solvents or hazardous locations, the above organizations require additional safety devices.

— 230 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— 460 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz
— 5kA short circuit current rating (SCCR)

Aluminized steel interior. Carbon steel structural members and steel plate painted with high temperature aluminum paint. Trilite Green enamel painted aluminized steel exterior.

Two Air Flow Patterns Available
Combination air flow for random shapes and sizes or for large bulky objects where heated air can move upward, around and through the load. Horizontal air flow for applications where heated air must move sideways to pass through a load such as trays or flat sheets. See circulation diagrams below.

Two Oven Configurations Available
Rear heat chamber for easy handling, low profile equipment. Top mounted heat chamber to minimize factory floor space occupied or to allow installation of doors at each end. Doors on front and rear allow for pass through operation or for loading from both ends.

To facilitate shipping and handling, top mounted heat chamber ovens are available with removable heat chambers. These ovens are fully assembled and tested. They are then sectioned and match-marked for easy reassembly at destination by customer.

Ovens come standard with steel plate floor and doorsill which oven doors seal against. If specified, doorsill can be eliminated and doors provided with drag seals. Up to 6' wide work space, plate floor is 1/8" thick. Wider ovens have 1/4" plate floor. Provisions for customer installed insulated floor are included. Optional factory installed insulated floor is available. See Bulletin WI-513.

Optional truck wheel guide tracks for loading equipment are available. Guide tracks can be installed on steel plate floor, recessed into insulated floor, or installed on top of insulated floor. See Bulletin WI-513.

Optional loading trucks specifically designed for use in each oven are available. Loading trucks come in shelf loading models with removable shelves or as heavy duty flat bed models with grating surface. See Bulletin WI-513.


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.

Gas Models
— 1,000 BTU natural gas at 6" water column pressure: 1" NPT inlet to 350,000 BTU/HR; 1-1/4" NPT to 1,200,000 BTU/HR
— 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 800,000 BTU/HR; at 1,200,000 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.
Circulation Diagrams
(Front View)
Combination Air Flow
Heated air is provided from full coverage supply duct work at each side of the work space and sweeps upward through the load to a return duct at the top of the work space. Used in most shelf truck loading applications where sufficient shelf area is left open to allow vertical air movement upward through the loaded truck. Ideal for large parts placed directly on oven floor or loaded on a flat bed truck.
See Bulletin WI-511
Horizontal Air Flow
Heated air is blown horizontally across the work space between full coverage duct work. For shelf truck loading applications with densely loaded shelves, solid bottom trays, or flat sheets where heated air can only pass sideways above and below each level. Also used on oven floor or loaded on a flat bed truck.
See Bulletin WI-512

Loading Trucks and Shelves, Insulated Floor and Truck Tracks,
Optional Temperature Controllers and Timers.
