Wisconsin Oven Corp. shipped an indirect-gas-fired walk-in oven to a manufacturer in the technology industry. The heavy-duty oven, which will be used for heat treating materials used in the production of vehicle batteries, has work-chamber dimensions of 12 feet wide x 6 feet long x 10 feet, 6 inches high. Guaranteed temperature uniformity of ±10°F at 190°F was documented with a nine-point temperature uniformity survey in an empty oven chamber under static operating conditions.
The batch oven was fully factory tested and adjusted prior to shipment. All safety interlocks were checked for proper operation, and the equipment was operated at the normal and maximum operating temperatures. To ensure heating rates and temperature uniformity, it is equipped with combination airflow, which includes a combustion air blower and combustion airflow switch.
