Two electrically heated conveyor ovens will be used to cure various component parts of laboratory equipment. The 800°F (427°C) units were built by Lewco Inc., Sandusky, Ohio.
The parts come in many different shapes and sizes, so it was critical to ensure they remained stationary as they passed through the oven. To do so, Lewco engineers used a balanced weave belt design, which will keep the parts stationary while also permitting adequate airflow across the parts.
Each oven is equipped with two independently controlled conveyors traveling through a single workspace. All parts cure at the same temperature, but some require longer dwell times. The conveyors allow for this by being able to set each conveyor speed according to a given part’s required dwell time.
