Oven Safety Standard Slated for MarchExplosions and fires in industrial heating systems can result in injury, loss of life, loss of property and loss of production. Understanding the required use of the American National Standards governing the compliant design and operation of ovens and furnaces is essential for everyone involved with this type of equipment.

A safety standards seminar hosted by the Industrial Heating Equipment Association is planned for March 5 - 6, 2013, at the Hilton Garden Inn O'Hare in Rosemont, Ill. IHEA's two day safety standards seminar will provide a comprehensive review of the latest revision of NFPA 86, Standard for Ovens & Furnaces, including updated requirements for:

  • Class A, B and C furnaces.
  • PLC-based burner management systems.
  • Pulse-fired systems.
  • Multiple burner systems.
  • Safety shutoff valves.
  • Purge and restart protocols.

The seminar will help attendees become more acquainted with NFPA 86, Standards for Ovens and Furnaces. Prospective attendees include those involved in the design, manufacture, service or operation of ovens, furnaces, kilns, dryers and thermal oxidizers.
