Two natural gas, direct-fired, heavy-duty walk-in ovens will be used by a manufacturer of automotive parts in China to bake out phenolic resin from brake components.

The ovens, which were built by Wisconsin Oven, have a maximum temperature rating of 500°F (260°C). The oven bodies are constructed with tongue-and-groove panel assemblies with high efficiency panel seams to provide improved insulating efficiency. The units provide both horizontal and vertical upward airflow to maximize heating rates and temperature uniformity. They include digital programmable temperature control and a 10" circular chart recorder.

The ovens were factory tested and adjusted prior to shipment from Wisconsin Oven’s East Troy, Wis., facility. All safety interlocks were checked for proper operation and a quality assurance checklist was completed.
