Conveyor Oven Cures Coating on Bottles
A two-zone, bottom-flow conveyor oven will be used to cure a latex barrier coating onto maple syrup bottles. The electrically heated oven, which has a maximum operating temperature of 150°F (66°C), is designed for a production rate of 3,200 bottles per hour.
According to Wisconsin Oven, the oven is designed with bottom-up airflow pattern to deliver convective heating vertically through the part load. A variable-frequency drive was included to allow the customer to adjust the belt speed based on processing needs.
The oven was fully factory tested and adjusted prior to shipment from Wisconsin Oven’s facility in East Troy, Wis.
