Despatch is a company founded on innovation. Working hand-in-hand with our customers we have developed custom thermal processing solutions that have influenced some of the world’s greatest technology breakthroughs over the last 100 years. Despatch is the leading supplier of thermal processing solutions to some of the world’s most sophisticated industries including healthcare, materials, energy and electronics.
Despatch designs and engineers ovens for many different applications. When selecting the type of equipment you will need, there are several considerations to be made, including:
- The quantity of material to be processed
- The uniformity, size and shape of the products
- The temperature tolerance that is permissible
Continuous ovens include the entire spectrum of oven equipment operated on a continuous or indexing basis. These ovens have construction characteristics that generally are similar to batch ovens. The distinguishing characteristics of continuous ovens include such items as the means of conveyance, air distribution techniques and product loading methods.
The type of conveyor selected for a continuous application depends almost entirely on the type of products being processed and their configuration at the time of processing. Monorail conveyors are adaptable to a wide variety of work pieces, as many individual work pieces can be positioned on fixtures or racks suspended from the monorail.
Despatch’s continuous processing oven portfolio features several models in different sizes with varying conveyor/belt widths. All models are designed for process versatility and reliability and are recognized for superior temperature uniformity in all interior parts due to high-volume, vertical down air flow. Typical applications include pre-heating, curing, bonding, drying and heat treating. Customers looking to optimize their continuous production efforts rely on Despatch to deliver the highest process quality for their application.
