Designed to be used for curing rubber parts, No. 998 is a 450°F (~232°C) gas-fired, vertical conveyor oven. Workspace dimensions measures 68 x 74 x 121”, and 400,000 BTU/hr are installed in a modulating natural-gas burner to heat the oven. A 6,000-cfm, 5-hp recirculating blower provides a combination airflow to the workload. The vertical conveyor oven has 4” insulated walls throughout, stainless steel exterior with No. 4 brushed finish and Type 304, 2B stainless steel interior with continuously backwelded seams. Two side doors provide access to the workspace. Loading/unloading positions on each side accept the fixtures, with a counterweight to hold the fixtures horizontal while passing upward through the oven chamber.
