Wisconsin Oven designed, manufactured and shipped a natural-gas-fired batch oven with a quench tank to solution treat aluminum. A company that processes aluminum parts for the aerospace industry received shipment of the oven, which is rated for a maximum operating temperature of 1250°F. The equipment is designed to accept a 4-foot-wide x 4-foot-high x 4-foot-long basket and has temperature uniformity of ±10°F at 600°F and 1100°F per AMS 2750D Class 2 Furnaces and Type C Instrumentation. The hearth consists of two rows of wheels, rated at a capacity of 3,600 pounds gross loading weight.
The heating system features a 500,000 BTU/hour air-heat burner including a motorized gas-control valve, flame detector and flame relay with alarm horn. The non-heated manual quench tank is fabricated with low-maintenance, corrosive-resistant 12-gauge 304 stainless steel. The oven provides the flexibility to heat treat a wide range of parts with multiple recipes.
