Batch Oven Composite Cures Aerospace Parts
An electrically heated batch oven with a maximum temperature of 400°F (205°C) will be used by an aerospace manufacturer to composite cure parts. Combination airflow provides both horizontal and vertical upward airflow, which maximizes heating rates and temperature uniformity.
Built and shipped by Wisconsin Oven Corp., the oven has capacity to heat 20,000 lb of steel and 1,000 lb of composite material from 80 to 350°F at an average rate of 0.1°F per minute. Guaranteed temperature uniformity of ±6°F at setpoints of 150, 200, 250, 300, 350 and 400°F was documented with a 15-point temperature uniformity survey in an empty oven chamber under static operating conditions.
