A manufacturer in the aerospace industry took shipment of an electrically heated curing oven with a maximum operating temperature of 400°F. The batch oven, which was manufactured by Wisconsin Oven, has sufficient capacity to heat 8,000 lb of steel and 20,000 lb of soluble material from 80° to 350°F at an average rate of 0.1°F per minute.
Solace Management Group Inc. completed construction of a 7,500 ft2 manufacturing facility in Coquitlam, British Columbia, that will increase production capacity by up to tenfold. The facility, which will produce pet and consumer healthcare goods, includes an industrial oven.

Lucifer Furnaces supplied several convection ovens to a manufacturer of small medical parts in the southern United States. The units, which heat to 1200°F, are insulated with 4.5" of multilayered firebrick and 2" insulating cold face block with overlapped seams for reduced thermal loss. Temperature uniformity is achieved with recirculating airflow.
Epcon Industrial Systems was selected to build an industrial oven with two combustion chambers located on top and three guillotine doors. The large unit, which will cure airplane parts, was funded by the United States government with a comprehensive site factory acceptance test (FAT) and on-site commissioning.
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.
