Wisconsin Oven Corp. shipped a four-zone conveyor oven to a manufacturer in the oil-and-gas industry. The electrically heated oven has the capability to heat 25 parts per hour with a heating time of 48 minutes and a cooling time of 12 minutes. Each chamber in this four-zone oven has a maximum temperature rating of 752°F (400°C) and dimensions of 1 foot, 8 inches wide x 2 feet long x 6 inches high. According to Wisconsin Oven, the oven will be used to melt a high-temperature polymer into a U-shape ring that houses electronic components.
The oven has a guaranteed temperature uniformity of ±10.8°F at 590°F (±6°C at 310°C) for a minimum of 6 minutes per heating chamber and with a belt speed of 2 inches per minute. A 1,500-CFM propeller fan cools the parts utilizing top-down airflow, where cooling air will be discharged into the shop from below the unit.
