Wisconsin Oven Corp. shipped a stress-relieving oven to a company in the technology industry. The natural-gas-fired oven will be used for stress relieving fabricated steel tanks. With a maximum operating temperature of 1250°F and work-chamber dimensions of 10 feet, 1 inch wide x 7 feet, 6 inches long x 6 feet, 8 inches high, the batch unit has the capacity to heat 6,060 pounds of steel from 70° to 1130°F in approximately 120 minutes.
The recirculation system utilizes combination airflow to maximize heating rates and temperature uniformity. The vertical lift door is pneumatically operated, and two sets of carbon-steel skid rails are used for forklift loading.
