Conveyor Ovens will Heat Treat Hose Clamps
Two continuous conveyor ovens will be used by a manufacturer of specialty hose clamps to heat treat various hose clamps up to 350°F (177°C).
Designed and delivered by Lewco Inc., both ovens meet the requirements of NFPA 86. The Class A ovens were needed due to residual oil and other lubricants being present on the parts.
Each oven has a top-mounted heater box with 36 kW heat input, and a 700-Cfm circulation fan delivers dual airflow throughout the workspace. The conveyor drives allow the ovens to operate in a timed index mode and can be adjusted from 2 to 4 ft/min.
