Mechanical Convection Oven Features

Heavy gauge steel exterior and stainless steel interior, all exterior panels are at least 16 gauge, interior features reinforced 304 stainless steel.

All welded and sealed construction assures trace oxygen levels and eliminates gas migration into insulation.

Fiberglass insulation - 4 full inches minimizes heat loss.

Baked on powder-coated enamel finish for long-lasting corrosion protection.

Blue M silicone door seal design for positive sealing of door.

Suitable for all inert gases and non flammable forming gas offers complete process flexibility (maximum 8% H2, balance N2).

Standard safety door switch recycles purge after door is opened to maintain atmosphere integrity shuts down heaters and blowers when door is opened.

 

Uniform, Accurate and Reliable Temperature Control

This mechanical convection industrial oven is vvailable with profiling or single setpoint temperature controls.

Horizontal air flow assures uniform thermal performance under all loading conditions.

All stainless steel cooling coil speeds cool down without risk of contamination allows near ambient operation depending on cooling water temperature.

Exclusive Blue M inert gas controls purge timer to assure full mechanical convection industrial oven chamber inerting, pressure gauge and pressure relief valve, adjustable flowmeter and purge bypass valve.

Exclusive Blue M gas delivery system where gas is introduced at the blower shaft that ensures proper mixing and eliminates the possibility of air being drawn into the chamber.

Electropolished stainless blower wheel to minimize contamination maintains positive chamber pressure at all times.

Direct Drive Motor includes multi-blade centrifugal blower, high-volume air delivery, dynamically balanced for minimum noise.
