Thermal Product Solutions shipped a Blue M Friction-Aire safety oven, which has a maximum temperature rating of 500°F (260°C), to a manufacturer of consumer products. The solvent-venting oven provides a controlled heat source without heating elements, which eliminates atmospheric explosions and ignitions when working with hazardous Class 1 or Group D materials.
Thermal Product Solutions shipped seven glassware drying ovens to a university based in the Midwest. The Gruenberg ovens have a maximum temperature rating of 650°F and utilize a vertical-up airflow, which maximizes heating rates and temperature uniformity of the product load.
After using a two-dimensional computer-aided design (CAD) platform for several years, JPW Ovens and Furnaces wanted to take advantage of new technology to improve its design process. As a result, the manufacturer added systems from Autodesk Inventor, a supplier of three-dimensional tools. The software provides an almost complete illustration of what a product will look like before it is built, say the companies.
HJF, a Korean supplier of meat and sauces, invested in cooking equipment manufactured by Belgium’s Infrabaker International. The industrial oven was purchased to meet demand for grilled chicken breast.
A truck-in oven with a maximum temperature rating of 650°F will be used to test parts used for downhole drilling in the oil-and-gas industry. The Gruenberg oven is constructed from a structural steel frame that supports the 304 stainless steel chamber liner and the exterior sheet metal. All interconnecting struts are noncontinuous, which keeps the exterior cool.
Two automatic drawer ovens have been designed to process drill pipes and drill cores for oilfield equipment. The equipment allows 30’ long parts to be loaded on the drawers via overhead crane for preheating.
In my cub reporter days, I worked part-time at a service station and auto parts store. My job primarily consisted of accepting payment from those purchasing gas and selling the sundries one might pick up at a neighborhood quick-stop shop.
A 250°F (121°C) electrically heated oven, No. 861 is used to dry small parts in a tray at the user’s facility. A 300-cfm, 0.33-hp recirculating blower provides vertical airflow upward through tray to the workload while 3 KW are installed in Incoloy-sheathed tubular heating elements.
International Thermal Systems was approached by an automotive suspension manufacturer to develop a system that would reduce hydrogen embrittlement from parts after plating. The result was an electrically heated closed loop system where the product is loaded and unloaded at the same spot.
JPW Industrial Ovens and Furnaces, an industrial oven manufacturer based near Williamsport, Pa., added a second facility to its operation. The new plant is expected to create 25 new jobs within the next two years. JPW’s Plant 2 will manufacture the company’s expanding line of standard industrial ovens.
