A custom industrial oven designed and manufactured for a company in the nuclear supply industry will be used for multiple applications. Lewco Inc. designed and manufactured the electrically heated, top-load oven, which has a maximum temperature of 900°F (482°C).
According to Lewco, the batch oven is equipped with a bottom-mounted heater box and an electrically actuated top-load door. It has a heat capacity of 36 kW, and a 700-cfm circulation fan delivers horizontal airflow evenly throughout the workspace. The oven also is equipped with a structurally reinforced floor to support up to 600 lb.
Oven controls include a programmable ramp/soak temperature controller and redundant high limit controller. The main process controller includes Ethernet communications to allow remote monitoring of temperature and alarms.
