A manufacturer in the aerospace industry took shipment of an electrically heated curing oven with a maximum operating temperature of 400°F. The batch system, which was manufactured by Wisconsin Oven, has sufficient capacity to heat 8,000 lb of steel and 20,000 lb of soluble material from 80 to 350°F at an average rate of 0.1°F per minute.
To maximize heating rates and the temperature uniformity of the product, horizontal and vertical upward airflow are utilized in the mandrel oven. Guaranteed temperature uniformity of ±10°F at setpoints 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.
The oven also includes a digital temperature controller and a paperless digital recorder with 5.5” graphic touchscreen display.
