Despatch Industries completed an order for a custom-built, high-temperature PTD oven for a customer in the petroleum industry. The customer plans to utilize the PTD oven to cure a coating on tools that would significantly extend the durability and life expectancy of the tool. The custom PTD features a larger chamber size and increased weight capacity, specifically designed for the customer’s distinct load requirements. The oven has a maximum temperature of 343°C (650°F) to meet the conditions of the curing application.

Prior to shipping, Despatch completed factory testing and the oven achieved ±3°C end-to-end uniformity. The new PTD is based on Despatch’s PTC, which is commonly used for burn-in and qualification testing of down-hole logging equipment. According to Despatch, this order was a great opportunity to extend its product offering in the petroleum market.
