Despatch Industries, Minneapolis, Minn., added a walk-in oven line. The new ovens have capacities of 476 and 952 ft3. The ovens are an expansion to the company’s TAD/TFD batch oven line.

Features of the new ovens include a maximum operating temperature of 650°F (345°C), electric or gas heat and ability to order Class A configurations. High volume fans deliver heated air through adjustable louvers from both sides of the chamber. Uniflow airflow helps ensure uniform temperatures throughout the oven. This air moves horizontally and vertically through the work chamber to be reheated and recirculated through the system.

The ovens can be used for aging, bonding, curing, drying, finish baking and heat treating.
