Gas Fired Walk-In Batch Oven Used to Vaporize, Vacuum Mercury from Spent Meters
An environmental services company uses a gas-fired walk-in batch oven to vaporize and vacuum out the mercury within retired gas meters. Once the mercury is safely reclaimed, the environmental services company melts the meters and disposes of the mercury. The gas-fired walk-in oven has a maximum temperature rating of 1250°F (677°C) and a work chamber measuring 8 x 8 x 5.25’.
The batch oven offers warranted temperature uniformity (±10°F at 1150°F) verified through a nine-point profile test prior to shipment. The oven hearth includes four stainless steel skid rails designed with a total capacity of 8,000 lb. The recycling batch oven has the sufficient capacity to heat 8,000 lb of steel from 70 to 1,150°F 21 to 621°C) within 6 hr when loaded into an ambient oven.
