Thermal Product Solutions shipped a Blue M Friction-Aire safety oven, which has a maximum temperature rating of 500°F (260°C), to a manufacturer of consumer products. The solvent-venting oven provides a controlled heat source without heating elements, which eliminates atmospheric explosions and ignitions when working with hazardous Class 1 or Group D materials.

The industrial oven evaporates solvents quickly. A high velocity airflow system and blower-generated heat create air turbulence and friction to attain even heat without hotspots, from 77 to 500°F.

Class 1 atmospheres contain flammable vapors, and Group D materials include many solvents commonly used in applications in testing and processing of hazardous materials, paints, solvents, coatings, lacquers, oils and gas.
