Ovens for Many ApplicationsUsed for applications such as metal finishing, preheating, solder reflow, curing, drying, sterilizing and shrink-fitting, ovens are available in batch and continuous designs. Batch configurations include cabinet, walk-in, car bottom, top load, elevator, drop bottom and laboratory. Continuous ovens can be arranged as belt conveyor, monorail, overhead trolley, indexing, pusher, Ferris wheel, carousel or spindle. Both convection and infrared heating can be employed.
Impingement TechnologyConvection air-impingement system can be used to dry or heat products that are produced in a configuration that impedes airflow through the product. This technology utilizes columns of high velocity hot air directed at the product surface via nozzles mounted above and below the product. The nozzles create streams of air that impinge on the product's surface, disrupting the boundary layer of water.
