The lifespan of an industrial oven can depend on several factors. If properly maintained, a lifespan of 30 years or longer is possible, according to International Thermal Systems.

Regular maintenance, including cleaning and replacing parts, is necessary to ensure equipment longevity. In addition to regular maintenance, routine, planned audits can identify and allow oven owners to avoid issues that could cause the equipment to fail prematurely.

In a blog post, International Thermal Systems provides the procedures an auditor should go through when conducting an industrial oven audit.
