Is Your Old Oven Obsolete? Safety and Performance Improvements for Baking and Drying Applications
Baking and drying ovens have been workhorses in the food, textile, and paper industries for many decades – and many oven users have clung to decades-old equipment because profit margins can be low in their industry. Although many of these older ovens still function with roughly the same level of consistency, certain newer technologies can result in reduced operating costs and lower risks to production and personnel due to fewer shutdowns.
During this one-hour webinar, you will learn about developments in oven safety and quality that might trigger a reassessment of your current systems or might help you select the right upgrades in a timely manner. The webinar will emphasize safety systems and practices that are addressed in the latest edition of NFPA 86 “Standard for Ovens and Furnaces” and will provide case studies of oven failures that led to product loss and personal injury.
You will also learn about:
- Nomenclature and features that distinguish ovens, furnaces, and dryers.
- A brief history of technology advancements in baking and drying ovens.
- New safety guidance for Class A Ovens, as published in the 2019 Edition of NFPA 86.
- Investigation anecdotes of unsafe practices.
- Avoiding pitfalls related to OSHA 1910.263 oven inspections.
- Challenges and solutions for fire detection and suppression in ovens.
- Research on analytical, computational, and statistical methods for quality control in ovens.
