Ammo Manufacturer Adds Annealing Conveyor Oven
A conveyor dryer will be used to anneal and stress relieve brass castings by an ammunition manufacturer. Thermal Product Solutions, White Deer, Pa., shipped the Gruenberg conveyor oven, which has a maximum temperature rating of 850°F (455°C).
A variable-speed conveyor system provides the operator with precise process control. The single oven module is constructed from a structural steel frame that supports the chamber liner and the exterior sheet metal. All interconnecting struts are non-continuous to keep the exterior cool.
The oven includes plug-style circulation and heating equipment. Three identical plugs on the unit allow the replacement of heaters away from the unit by removal of the plug as well as quick interchange if an extra plug is available.
