Automotive Supplier Orders Gas-Fired Batch Ovens
Wisconsin Oven Corp. shipped two direct gas-fired batch ovens to a leading automotive supplier for tempering tire molds. The tempering process of the molds results in a longer mold life. The industrial ovens were designed with a load capacity of 6,000 pounds and provide easy access of loading and unloading tire molds by fork truck. Each tempering batch oven has a maximum operating temperature rating of 800°F, work-chamber dimensions of 5 feet wide x 5 feet long x 8 feet high and a 6-inch reinforced insulated floor.
The recirculation system utilizes combination airflow that provides both horizontal and vertical upward airflow to maximize heating rates and temperature uniformity of the product. Supply air is delivered through fully adjustable boxed ducts, which are side-mounted along the length on each side of the work chambers. The heating system features an industrial air heat burner rated at 850,000 BTU/hour.
